President's Message

By Tori Abe Carapelho

The new year is a special time to reflect on the opportunities and experiences we enjoyed in the year prior and to plan strategically for the days to come. For our community organization, 2019 was one of our most significant years to date, as we celebrated our momentous 40th anniversary and announced our transition to Navian Hawaii.

We’ve received an abundance of positive feedback from our supporters in the community since announcing our name change. Many people understood the purpose of changing our name in order to care for every life journey, and have expressed that the addition of our new pillar of service will have a positive impact on patients in Hawaii.

While this is an exciting transitional time for our organization, we never lose focus of our patients, and providing the highest quality of end-of-life care possible. Hospice care is at the heart of what we do, and we remain dedicated to alleviating pain and suffering while enhancing the quality of life of patients and their families on Oahu, Molokai and Lanai, regardless of their ability to pay. In addition to the launch of our Integrated Care Program, we will continue to offer our Hospice Care Program to provide for the physical, social, emotional and spiritual well-being of all in our care.

Thank you for your unwavering support during this transition period for Navian Hawaii. We are honored to serve you.
