Pahoa Community Medical Center to Open 7 Days a Week

I just read a post by Dan Domizio that the Puna Community Medical Center (PCMC) will be opening 7 days a week in the next week or two.

This is great news for us folks out in Puna.  Just a few weeks ago my son had a soar throat (which turned out to be tonsilitis) and we had to wait until the weekday was upon us as well as drive all the way into town just to have his throat checked out.

Here is an inside look at the clinic from when the time I went in on opening day.

While the waiting room itself isn’t that big:

The examination rooms are quite spacious:

With more days available to help serve the community, I’m sure all of us will know someone sooner or later who will be using this clinic at one time or another in the future.

So if you get a chance to drop by and take a tour, Domizio said “People are welcome for a quick tour if we are not busy. The waiting area is small, but mellow. I think the fish tank is soothing. We are slowly working on the decor and having fun with it.”
