The Puna Community Medical Center is a nonprofit that was established to provide Quality Healthcare for all the people of Puna. The clinic is a grassroots organization which requires no appointment, is open seven days a week including holidays, and takes all comers.
“Because many patients, including small children, have no insurance or money, it costs us to treat them. But we treat them anyway. So from time to time we have to have a fundraiser to cover these losses,” said a spokesman.
