National Accreditation Renewed for UHSM
In June 2014, University Health Services Mānoa achieved continuing accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
Accreditation involves an extensive on-site, peer-based survey of facilities and services and passing a series of nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care. UHSM received a three-year accreditation, the highest level granted by the AAAHC.

NEWS AND UPDATES
University Health Services encourages you to get a flu vaccination to protect yourself, your friends and family. UH students may receive their flu shot on a walk-in basis. UH faculty and staff should call 956-6221 to schedule an appointment.
We will accept payment from participating health insurance companies. If you insurance does not cover flu shots, or you do not have insurance, the charge will be $15 (for UH students) or $40 (for UH faculty and staff).
We are administering the quadrivalent flu vaccine which is designed to protect against four different flu viruses; two influenza A viruses and two influenza B viruses. For years, flu vaccines have been trivalent, or designed to protect against three different flu viruses—two A viruses and one B virus. Experts have had to choose between two very different B viruses for that year’s flu vaccine, even though both B viruses spread in most seasons. This meant the vaccine did not help to protect against the second group of B viruses that were not included in the vaccine. By adding another B virus to the vaccine, quadrivalent vaccines may give broader protection.
We look forward to serving you, and we hope you will have a happy and healthy Fall Semester.
Get ready for a newer University Health Services. UHSM will be undergoing renovation beginning August 2014 and is scheduled to last until March 2015.
During this time, the clinic's main front door entryway will be blocked off, and patients will need to enter through the back door. Please follow our signs and directions to ensure your safety and quality of service.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and will do our utmost to minimize the renovation's impact on your visit. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
