Native Hawaiian Health
E ola ka ‘ōiwi
(Healthy and well are the Hawaiians)
Optimal health balance means
Personal balance of mind, body, spirit
Connection to resources, people, places, and cultural identity
Established in Fiscal Year 2007, the Native Hawaiian Health Department has a vision to enhance the ola pono (health, well-being) of Native Hawaiians by elevating their overall health status to a level comparable with that of other ethnic groups in Hawai‘i. In support of this vision, The Queen’s Health System made a long-term commitment to provide in perpetuity quality health care services by aligning its strengths with the priority health needs of Native Hawaiians.
Kahua Ola is the Native Hawaiian Health strategic plan (2019) that outlines priorities to achieve the vision, E ola ka ‘ōiwi (Healthy and well are the Hawaiians).
