It is our desire to create a warm setting with many comforts of home. Patients and families are encouraged to bring small pictures or sentimental items that make each room feel familiar.
Each suite has its own private lanai where the patient and their family/visitors are welcome to utilize that area. The patient bed may be brought out for bedbound patients. Other amenities offered are a Family and Keiki room, and on-site laundry.
Twelve beautifully appointed private air conditioned suites, with ceiling fan, private restroom, phone, Wi-Fi, television, and an exclusive lanai that await each patient and their families. An in-room couch and adjustable pull out chair serve as beds for family members who wish to remain with loved ones overnight
