Kaiser Permanente will build a new home for its rehabilitation specialty services on Maui next to its Maui Lani facility.
The Rehabilitation Specialty Center will allow Kaiser to move its physical and occupational therapies, physiatry, neurology and occupational health services from its Wailuku Clinic on Mahalani Street and use that space for other services, according to a Kaiser news release.
"Establishing this Rehabilitation Specialty Center will provide our members with a comprehensive range of related health services in one location while allowing for the expansion of other specialty care services at our nearby Wailuku Clinic, including ob/gyn, general surgery, dermatology, oncology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology and orthopedics," said Dr. David Ulin, Maui physician in charge. "Our new center will allow us to better accommodate and respond to the community of Maui's need for high-quality health care by providing coordinated rehabilitation services all under one roof."
The 9,300-square-foot center, to be named Maui Lani Elua, is expected to be completed by fall, with construction beginning this month. Kaiser has budgeted more than $7 million for the facility.
The new center, to be located at 75 Maui Lani Parkway, will join Kaiser service locations in Lahaina and Kihei, and a Behavioral Health Services office on Wells Street in Wailuku.
Last year, the organization expanded and renovated its pharmacy at Maui Lani Clinic, opened Rainbow Dialysis Center at its Wailuku Clinic and relocated CT scan services to the Maui Lani Clinic.
