AlohaCare And The Community

Local, nonprofit health plan AlohaCare recently distributed $1.62 million to 14 community health centers and clinics statewide. The funding is part of AlohaCare’s Quality Improvement Incentive Program, an annual initiative that aims to improve clinical care, services and access to care, especially for Hawaii’s at-risk populations. Pictured (from left) are John McComas, CEO, AlohaCare; Emmanuel Kintu, CEO, KalihiPalama Health Center; Richard Bettini, CEO, Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center, and Frank Appel, director of quality improvement, AlohaCare.

Junior Golf Association Gets A Boost

Aloha Petroleum Ltd. recently presented the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association (HSJGA) with a check for more than $3,000, continuing its support of junior golf for the fourth consecutive year. For every gallon of gas that was purchased last year by customers with a Junior Golf affinity fuel charge card, Aloha Petroleum contributed 3 cents to HSJGA. Aloha Petroleum’s contributions added up to $3,106.31.
