Statement about Hawaii Medical Centers (HMC East and HMC West) Closings from Donna Schmidt, LCSW of Pearl City Urgent Care:
With the closure of the local hospitals and emergency departments, the remaining ERs will be overcrowded and stressed to their limits. Area physicians' offices will also be busy as this is the cold, flu, earache and asthma attack season. We offer patients the convenient option of our new Pearl City Urgent Care Center staffed by Emergency Physicians and Nurse Practitioners with many years of Emergency Medicine experience. We are striving to serve the community, especially in this time of need for immediate medical care." Read a Special Report on EMR Closings.
