The Medical Services Department provides medical evaluation, first aid, urgent/emergent
care, and referral services for all students as well as inpatient
care to boarding students. Students will be seen on a first-come,
first-served basis as they sign in except in the case of an emergency,
which will take precedence. There is no charge to students who are
seen at Hale Ola. However the cost of medications and some laboratory
tests provided to students from Hale Ola is charged to the Parents/Guardians
of the student, and is billed through normal billing procedures.
