Clinical Residence

Because our highly skilled and specialized staff come from far and wide, we provide a secure landing place for those new to Maui. Our beautiful and spacious Clinical Residence is located in the Imua Discovery Garden. Here, our new staff can begin the process of finding permanent housing and quickly begin providing services to our keiki and their families.
