The opening of CMC’s new Women’s Health Clinic will help address the current demand for more physicians that specialize in obstetric and gynecologic services in the West Oahu area, including Kapolei.
To help address the growing demand for women’s healthcare services in West Oʻahu, Central Medical Clinic (CMC), part of the ‘Ekahi Health family of companies, today announced the opening of its new women’s health practice at the Queen’s West Physician’s Office Building (POB).
“As the population in West Oʻahu continues to grow, so does the need for greater access to healthcare services,” said Dean Hirata, CEO of ‘Ekahi Health. “Expanding to West Oʻahu has been a long-term goal of CMC. To address the current demand for more physicians that specialize in obstetric and gynecologic services, it made sense to begin our expansion with our women’s health services practice.”
The new clinic, located in the Queen’s West Physician’s Office Building, provides obstetric and gynecologic services, including annual well women exams, prenatal care, 3-D obstetric ultrasound, contraception management, cancer screening services, STD screening and treatment, minimally invasive surgical procedures, and more. Dr. Arlene Baldillo and Dr. Richard Ikehara, previously located exclusively at the CMC at Kuakini Medical Plaza, are now available to treat new and existing patients at CMC’s new West O‘ahu clinic.
Dr. Arlene Baldillo, DO, MPH – Asa board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist (Ob/Gyn) for more than 10 years, Dr. Baldillo received her undergraduate degree at Cornell University and her Masters in Public Health, specializing in maternal and fetal medicine, from Boston University.

Dr. Richard Ikehara, MD – For more than 20 years, Dr. Ikehara has been practicing obstetrics and gynecology in Hawaiʻi.
