Start Your Journey

We wanted to update you on some upcoming changes at MLPS.

For 10 years we have enjoyed being an integral part of your family's lives and have celebrated some of your best moments together. We have also felt privileged to help support you through some of the most difficult as well. Our dedicated team of physicians have delivered thousands of Maui babies with care, compassion and love. Unfortunately, after careful consideration, we have decided to stop providing OB care on Maui. We have found that continuing OB care is unsustainable moving forward due to staffing issues, physician recruitment, and low reimbursements in exchange for time worked.

Effective immediately, Maui Lani Physicians and Surgeons will no longer be taking any new pregnancies. We are finishing out the deliveries we have now, and after October, will just be providing gynecology care. We will still be accepting new patients, just not for their pregnancies. This is good news for the non-pregnant patients in the community, as we know our wait times to get new patients into the clinic have been long. We will definitely be working on decreasing our wait times to access GYN care at MLPS.

Malama I Ke Ola and Kaiser will be the only 2 options for deliveries at this time. Malama OB/GYN's include Dr. Altura, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Monji, Dr. Aaronoff, Dr. Chakravarty, and Heather Milovina (CNM). They will be able to absorb the majority of our patients, although we have been told that they plan on capping their delivery numbers. If other options become available, we will let you know.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for supporting our practice. We look forward to many more years together.
