Professional Practice Model

Why is it important to have a model?

By creating a professional practice model (PPM), Hilo Medical Center has laid the foundation for how care is delivered in our organization. We thrive on evidence-based care, nursing innovation, staff appreciation, and excellent patient outcomes.

Developing our professional practice model at Hilo Medical Center

In October 2023, our nurse manager team, nurse directors, and Chief Nursing Officer collaborated on values that best represented our vision for nursing care at our organization. Our nurse leaders had the opportunity to vote on their top values that best envision what we want to provide to our community, our patients, and our staff.
