During this COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic it is critical that healthcare providers caring for the most vulnerable population take every precaution possible to protect the health and safety of residents, clients, patients and employees. Hale Makua Health Services is making every effort to prevent this virus from entering its nursing and adult residential care homes, which will include limiting visitors:
EFFECTIVE MONDAY, MARCH 16, 2020
- Hale Makua Kahului and Wailuku Campuses – In an abundance of caution for the safety of our kūpuna, we are requesting the public’s assistance in refraining from visiting our campuses unless visitation is needed for end-of-life situations or the mental well-being of the resident. Any visitors who meet this criteria will need to get prior approval from the nursing home Administrator prior to visiting. For individuals who have loved ones residing at Hale Makua, we encourage calling, emailing, texting, or video chatting during this time.
- Rehab by Hale Makua – Outpatient occupational, physical and speech therapies will be temporarily halted.
Home Health by Hale Makua - Continues to service its home-bound patients in need of skilled nursing and therapy services across Maui.
Adult Day Health by Hale Makua – Remains temporarily closed.
Despite the impact COVID-19 prevention is having on our operations and community, Hale Makua is still hiring. However, effective today, we will require virtual interviews using Skype, Facetime or similar video conferencing means in lieu of in-person/on-site job candidate interviews. This change is being made to help protect our residents and staff from unnecessary potential exposure.

In order to ensure the safety and protection of our residents and staff during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, we are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as the Department of Health regarding this virus.
We have educated employees on the signs and symptoms of COVID-19, prevention measures, and have asked employees to stay home if sick or having traveled to a Level 2 or Level 3 country on the CDC Travel Advisory List. In addition, we are prepared with a 14-day supply of food, water, and other supplies needed to care for residents on hand.
As we continue to closely monitor this emerging outbreak, we ask for your assistance in helping to prevent the spread of infection and protect our kūpuna.
