Kaiser Permanente Hawaii Will Temporarily Consolidate Care to Larger Medical Offices Starting Monday
Kaiser Permanente Hawaii will continue providing high-quality care to its members in the event of a strike by Local 5 represented employees. If the strike occurs, resources will be consolidated to larger medical offices and 10 smaller clinics will close temporarily beginning Feb. 2, through the six-day work stoppage. Kaiser Permanente Hawaii continues to be in contract negotiations with Local 5 leadership in hopes of reaching an agreement soon.
Physicians and RNs will be available to provide medical care at open facilities during the strike. Elective procedures and non-urgent appointments will be rescheduled, with affected patients notified directly.
