In order to meet the unique needs of the individuals, families, and communities in our wide-reaching, rural service area, we have designed a multi-tiered healthcare system to provide care as close to where our customers call “home” as possible.
At the heart of our health system are 41 village clinics, staffed by Community Health Practitioners, providing acute, chronic, emergent, and preventative services. When a higher level of care is needed, patient referrals are often made to one of our five Sub-Regional Clinics, located in Aniak, Emmonak, Hooper Bay, St. Mary’s, and Toksook Bay. Based in larger sub-regional “hub” communities, our Sub-Regional Clinics have year-round mid-level providers on staff, limited diagnostic imaging, pharmacy, and dental services.
The Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Regional Hospital in Bethel is our largest healthcare facility. A Joint Commission accredited hospital, we offer outpatient family medicine, pediatric care, obstetrics and women’s health, pharmacy, lab, and diagnostic imaging (or x-ray) services. The hospital houses the region’s only emergency room and also offers inpatient care, serves as a Level 4 Trauma center, and has limited surgical services on site.
In addition to our clinical facilities, we offer additional health services, including: dental, optometry, specialty services, behavioral health counseling, alcohol and substance abuse treatment services, specialized programs for managing chronic conditions like diabetes, tobacco prevention and cessation, and outreach programs to promote healthy living.
As a Tribal Organization, guided and governed by our region’s tribes, we are doubly committed to the health, safety and well-being of our people.
