JUNEAU – In commemoration of Alaska Day, Wednesday, October 18, the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) administrative offices and all outpatient medical clinics throughout the region will be closed.

The Emergency Department at Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital (MEH) in Sitka will, of course, remain open and available for all emergency medical care. The hospital will stay fully staffed, and visitors are welcome to come during the holiday to spend time with family members or friends that are patients at MEH.

SEARHC wishes all Southeast Alaskans a happy and safe Alaska Day.
