COVID Free Hawaii is an organization created to support the reopening of Hawaii businesses, economy, and tourism. We are community-based comprised of a state of the art local laboratory and non-profit licensed local medical professionals. Our mission is to provide Hawaii with viable COVID testing solutions for both Hawaii residents, incoming visitors, and employees. Our goal is to eliminate fear for both visitors and locals.
COVID Free Hawaii is the joining of two vital organizations to provide organized COVID medical services such as sample collection and antibody testing to the islands. These two organizations are S&G Labs Hawaii and The Island Group.
S&G Labs Hawaii, LLC, was founded by Lynn Welch, MD, who has been practicing and treating patients on the Big Island since 2008. As a practicing pain physician, she realizes the considerable need for high-level expert care for patients.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, she reallocated many of her employees and invested in extra equipment to support the re-opening of Hawaii. The laboratory is based in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. S&G employs valuable staff on the Big Island, Oahu, Maui, and Kauai, where COVID Free Hawaii is currently offering collection services. S&G Labs Hawaii is dedicated to serving the community in all ways possible to ensure the safety of those around us.
