A Unique Environment
The ANMC offers comprehensive, acute, specialty, primary and
behavioral health care services to Alaska Native and American
Indian people living in Alaska. "ANMC is home to one of America's most unique health care environments - a place where the
highest quality care and cutting-edge technology meets special
cultural and traditional services and customer experiences," it says.
The award-winning medical center includes a 167-bed hospital, a full range of medical specialties, primary care services and
labs. The ANMC hospital houses Alaska's first Level II Trauma
Center and is Alaska's only hospital designated by Magnet for
nursing excellence. The hospital also works in close partnership
with rural health facilities statewide to support a broad range of
health care and related services.
The hospital is part of the Alaska Tribal Health System, a
network of facilities that provides services to more than 150,000
Alaska Native and American Indian people throughout the state.
The ANMC is jointly owned and managed by the Alaska Native
Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) and Southcentral Foundation (SCF) and includes the hospital and the Anchorage Native
Primary Care Center. These organizations established a joint
operating board to ensure unified operation of health services
provided by the medical center, it says.
