Core Values and Guiding Principles
Our values at Waimnalo Health Center promote Hawaiian-centered diversity, equity, and inclusion by welcoming all members of the Koolaupoko community to access our holistic services ranging from traditional Hawaiian healing practices to Western medicine.
Aloha: We listen to people with our full attention, seeking to know them and understand their health care and wellness needs and aspirations for themselves, their family and community. We will respond, to the best of our abilities, as caring, compassionate, engaged, and professional partners in healthcare.
Mālama I Ka Pono: We know that quality healthcare starts with people’s trust in our services and the excellence of our care for them and the resources entrusted to us to meet their needs. We are committed to maintaining their trust by treating people with respect and confidentiality, and by being open about our organizational practices and results, seeking to continuously improve our work.
Mālama I Ka Ohana: We believe that wellness embraces the whole family, and we welcome their participation in the healthcare of their loved ones. Our belief extends from the Ahupuaa of Waimnalo throughout Koolaupoko where we build the foundation for good health and wellness for everyone, and we seek collaborative partners who share our values and vision.
Mālama I Ka 'Aina: We understand the importance of one’s sense of place and the holistic nature of health and wellbeing. Through integrative services we support the balance of body, mind, and spirit, while respecting one’s cultural connectedness to the ‘ina of Hawai'i. Ka Mauli O Ka ‘ina A He Mauli Knaka: The Life of the Land is the Life of the People.
We are seeking a full-time or part-time dedicated, talented, and team-oriented individual to join our `ohana (family) to support our mission and values. Waimānalo Health Center is dedicated to offering employees an exceptional work environment and offers competitive salaries and benefits.

Our healing practices connect to five key characteristics that are deeply associated with ALOHA. These foundational themes contribute to your growth and understanding as a Hawaiian Health Practitioner:
Kaunānā: Perception: Paying attention with the mind, body, and spirit.
Mākaukau: Readiness: Foresight that comes from spiritual discipline.
Haʻahaʻa: Humility: The bridling of the ego.
Hoʻomaikaʻi Akahai: Respect: Foundational in healing and essential in Hawaiian healing traditions.
Ahonui: Patience: Accepting that everything will have its time, we cannot measure or have expectations of a patient or plant’s process. Hawaiian healing is holistic in nature, a process and commitment that involves self, ‘ohana, ʻāina and Akua. It is the individual’s responsibility to take an active role in their healing.
