Toggle ItemTransportation to Specialist Appointments
- Health Services and other departments on campus are not staffed to provide transportation for patients. If personal transportation is not available, we suggest checking with your friends or family first or utilizing the ward organizations on campus. Check with your visiting teachers, home teachers, Elder's Quorum and Relief Society leaders, or someone in your Bishopric. For those that live on campus, you may also ask your resident assistants or dorm parents.
- The City & County of Honolulu has one of the country's best public bus transit system (TheBus). Bus routes and schedules can be picked up at the Aloha Center Information Desk area, viewed online, or you may speak with Health Services staff for help.

Toggle ItemWorkers' CompensationIn order to visit the Health Center for a work injury; the patient must be an active employee of BYUH (full/part-time or student), or a PCC student employee, and the injury must have occurred through employment at BYUH or PCC.
Students injured through employment outside of BYUH/PCC will need to seek treatment from an outside medical provider.
Both the Student Medical Benefit and DMBA insurance do not cover injuries from work. Hawaii Law requires that Workers’ Compensation insurance cover work injuries.
BYUH employees: The injured worker must complete an Employee Accident Report and have it signed by their department and turned in to HR. This must be done BEFORE an appointment is made for the patient unless it is an emergency and waiting to file a report could cause harm or further injury to the patient. The date of injury given to Health Services, must match the date of injury on the accident report.
PCC employees: The injured worker must go to PCC First Aid to file a work injury report. If First Aid is closed then they should contact PCC HR. This must be done BEFORE an appointment is given unless in an emergency as stated above. The date of injury given to Health Services, must match the date of injury on the accident report.
Toggle ItemVisitors' Use of the Health CenterOnly emergency care is available to visitors on campus. All other care should be under the direction of the visitors' sponsor and will be referred to his/her primary care physician or a facility in the community.
