Are all providers the same?

How do I know who the good ones are?

How do I know who the BEST in Hawaii are?

Healthcare is no different than any other profession when you need help. Whether it be a mechanic, hairdresser, or high school teacher: Some are better than others and most of us want to work with the best.

The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence is an international accrediting body created to evaluate and recognize top-performing behavioral health providers. BHCOE offers a third-party measurement system that differentiates top service providers through a rigorous evaluation that includes:

  • Interviews with clinical leadership

  • Detailed staff qualification review

  • Anonymous staff satisfaction survey

  • Anonymous consumer satisfaction survey

  • Review of clinical outcomes 

The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence has awarded Malama Pono Autism Center with distinction as a top behavioral health provider in the country. The award celebrates the very best behavioral health providers that set themselves apart in the areas of clinical quality, staff satisfaction, staff qualifications and consumer satisfaction.

Malama Pono takes pride in knowing that an independent third party has thoroughly evaluated our program and found us to be one of the best in Hawaii. Here’s how we rank among others in the country:

  • 96% of parents agree or strongly agree that their child’s challenging behaviors have been reduced and new skills have been acquired since their child has been at MPAC. (The industry average is 83%)

  • 91% of parents agree or strongly agree that the quality of my family’s life has improved since my child began receiving treatment at MPAC. (The industry average is 84%)
