About Navian Hawaii

Originally established in 1979 as Hospice Hawaii, Navian Hawaii works to provide care for every life journey. As a longtime hospice provider, the Hospice Hawaii name served us well, but with the addition of Integrated Care services, a new name was needed to better reflect the expanded scope of care.

As Navian Hawaii, our name may have changed, but our mission, our values and our caring heart remain the same. In line with its mission to bring hope, reduce fears, and impact lives, Navian is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of professionals and trained volunteers who meet the physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of patients and families in the comfort of their own homes as well as in other settings like its Kailua Home, nursing homes and other facilities. The non-profit organization offers Integrated Care for those with serious but treatable illnesses, and Hospice Care for those near their journey’s end. Navian Hawaii has offices on Oahu, Molokai and Lanai. For more information about Navian Hawaii, visit
