Harimoto also notes that he has invited the Honolulu City and County Fire Department and EMT to provide a fire truck and an ambulance. "We are kicking off our new monthly Health Fair Event at the Farmers Market. Along with the free blood pressure checks, Pearl City Urgent Care will present important information to help people understand when to go to the ER."

Dr. Melanie Kelly, Medical Director of Pearl City Urgent Care adds, "Most times, people who go to the Emergency Room with non-life threatening health conditions, like the flu, can be better served by coming to urgent care. We offer patients the convenient option of our Pearl City Urgent Care Center staffed by Physicians and Nurse Practitioners with many years of emergency medicine experience seven days a week with extended hours. We are striving to serve the community, especially in this time of need for immediate medical care and are happy to provide this important service to the public."
