During Your Stay

Your Private Room

Your private room features many qualities to ensure your safety and a home-like ambiance. Your room includes a private bathroom, television, telephone, and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Your room also features a large lanai door for natural light. Your lanai door is locked for your safety and security; however, your nurse may have your door unlocked upon your request. Please be aware there may be times when your lanai door may not be opened.

To contact a nurse, there is a call button located at your bedside. When you press this button, the nursing station is notified that you need assistance, and a staff member will respond as soon as possible.

The temperature in your room is individually controlled for your comfort. If you find it too warm or cold, please notify the nursing staff.


Your Dining Experience

Wholesome, nourishing and well-balanced meals are an important part of good health. We strive to provide nutritious meals to best support your recovery. Depending upon your medical requirements and physician’s direction, you may receive tailored menus. A menu with your daily meal options will be placed on your breakfast tray each morning. A member of our Nutritional Services staff is happy to assist you in making meal choices or with special requests. Please contact them by dialing ext. 44850.

Leaving Your Room

If you would like to leave your room and unit, please check at the nurses’ station to make sure your doctor has given approval and to let staff know where you can be reached. It is important to stay in your room until your doctor has made rounds and necessary treatments have been completed.


Hale Mana‘Olana Chapel

Meaning “House of Hope”, our chapel is located at the end of the main hallway and offers a quiet place of solitude and prayer. Religious scriptures and books from numerous spiritual practices are available.


Spiritual Support

Through the support of volunteer community chaplains, North Hawaii Community Hospital offers spiritual comfort to help you and your family through prayer, nurturing conversation, guidance and support. Please contact your nurse to take advantage of this complimentary service.


Advance Directives

Advance directives are documents that state your choices about medical treatment or name someone to make decisions about your medical treatment if you are unable to make these decisions yourself. They are called “advance” directives because they are signed in advance to let your physician and other healthcare providers know your wishes concerning medical care.

These documents include a living will or power of attorney. If you have completed these documents, we will place a copy in your chart to ensure that your medical providers follow your wishes. If you have not previously completed these documents, our Case Management and Social Work Representatives are happy to explain them and help you fill them out. For more information, please contact your nurse.
