A Place with Purpose

When construction of this state-of-the-art Veterans Affairs Clinic is completed, 87,000 veterans will gain expanded access to essential medical care.

A Place with Purpose

Located at the (newly redesigned) corner of Kamokila Boulevard and FDR Avenue, the Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic is a $120 million multispecialty clinic that provides primary health care, as well as laboratory and diagnostic services, mental health services, physical and occupational therapy, audiology, prosthetics, dental services, and a pharmacy for Oahu’s 85,000-plus veterans. The Akaka VA Clinic will also increase the availability of health providers while reducing wait times and insufficient parking that veterans often experience while visiting the highly frequented Spark M. Matsunaga Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Tripler.

Named for the late former Senator Akaka, who was an outspoken advocate for veterans rights, longtime chair of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, and a World War II veteran himself, the Akaka VA Clinic had been a goal for lawmakers for decades. In March 2021, a 15-year lease in Kapolei was secured for the nearly 89,000-square-foot facility, with Hunt Development Group Hawai‘i as the developer and Nan, Inc. as general contractor. Despite procurement delay issues due to nationwide supply shortages, the project is more than 90% finished, with the building’s exterior nearly complete with window and glazing installation, plus interior light fixtures, doors, and flooring added in the clinic.

When the Akaka VA Clinic opens, it will roughly double the capacity of the VA Pacific Islands Health Care System. The building itself will boast more than 1,300 solar panels and a photovoltaic system that will power the facility. By early 2024, this system is projected to produce close to or nearly a million kilowatt hours of solar power. Hunt is also installing 19 vehicle charging stations to fulfill the emerging need for EV chargers on the west side and to help foster an environmentally sustainable community in Kalaeloa.

The Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic will provide:

  • Primary Care
  • Mental Health Care
  • Laboratory and Diagnostic Services
  • Specialty Care
  • X-Ray
  • Pharmacy
  • Dental
  • Radiology
  • Physical Therapy
  • Women’s Health
