HONOLULU (KHON2) — Kaiser Permanente is canceling visitation at Moanalua Medical Center effective immediately, for the health and safety of patients, physicians and staff, and in accordance with recent guidelines from the State of Hawaii.

Exceptions to this new policy will be made for family members in the following situations.

  • Labor & Delivery and Postpartum – one visitor or birthing partner per patient
  • Pediatrics, PICU, NICU – one visitor per patient
  • Hospice / End of Life – one visitor per patient
  • Members traveling from neighbor islands may bring a caregiver with them

Individuals who have a cough, cold or are sick should not visit or accompany patients to the facility. Anyone 14 years old or younger, who is not a patient, will not be permitted to visit patients at this time.
