Support Groups

Hilo Medical Center’s mission is to improve our community’s health through exceptional and compassionate care.

One of the ways we demonstrate our mission is through our community support groups. Please join us if you or someone you love is living with diabetes, COPD or ostomy or is a survivor of rat lungworm disease or a stroke.
