Kaua‘i Medical Clinic began in 1966, when Wilcox Memorial Hospital built an outpatient clinic adjacent to the hospital. It originally had space for six physicians and 24 exam rooms. In 1967, the Kaua‘i Medical Group was officially formed, and the hospital and clinic became known as G.N. Wilcox Memorial Hospital and Health Center. In 1996, the clinic changed its name to Kaua‘i Medical Clinic and formally affiliated with Wilcox. Together, they collectively became known as Wilcox Health. In 2001, Wilcox Health affiliated with Hawai‘i Pacific Health, the state’s largest health care provider. Today, with a main clinic and three satellite clinics, Kaua‘i Medical Clinic provides the majority of primary and secondary care to Kaua‘i residents and visitors.
