North Hawaii Community Hospital’s Cancer Center offers a full range of cancer care services on island, keeping patients close to home.

Patient Navigation

Our Cancer Center can assist patients and families with overcoming health care system barriers and facilitate access to quality health care services from diagnosis through all phases of your cancer journey.

We are dedicated to providing you personalized care to address your unique challenges.  Patient navigators can help every step of the way to make sure you are not alone.  In collaboration with your medical team, we help you plot a course for your journey with us.  Our patient navigators are highly trained, caring individuals who are culturally sensitive to the unique needs of Hawaii’s cancer patients.

Personalized Genomic Testing

Personalized genomic testing is performed at The Queen’s Medical Center’s Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory and Biorepository.  Personalized molecular medicine gives physicians the opportunity to create a treatment plan specific to each patient’s genome. We also refer patients to genetic counseling specialists as needed.
