JUNEAU – SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) outpatient clinics will be closed on Monday, September 7, in observance of the Labor Day holiday.
Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital will remain open and be fully staffed to care for hospital patients. The emergency room will also remain open.
As a reminder, SEARHC’s free After-Hours Nurse Advice Line is available in most Southeast communities. It is an excellent resource for SEARHC patients who have health concerns or questions outside of regular business hours such as nights, weekends, and holidays. The Advice Line is currently available in Angoon, Haines, Hoonah, Juneau, Kake, Klukwan, Pelican and Prince of Wales Island.
Patients may dial the toll-free number, 1-800-613-0560 to be connected with a registered nurse. The nurse may provide answers to general health questions, advice for home care, relay messages to the local clinic, or connect with emergency services. Anyone experiencing a medical emergency should call 911 or their local emergency services dispatch.
SEARHC would like wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy Labor Day.
