SEARHC frequently brings in traveling medical specialists to hold specialty clinics at its various facilities, saving you the expense and inconvenience of flying to Anchorage or Seattle for services not available in Southeast. Some SEARHC medical providers who work at larger facilities make regular trips to the smaller, remote clinics to provide specialty services that aren’t normally available in those villages. All specialty clinics, except for medical field trips and specified dental clinics must be referred through a SEARHC provider (no self-referrals).

 

Sitka Clinics: Mount Edgecumbe Hospital (S’áxt Hít)

Check in with patient access on the First Floor of the hospital, near the elevators, before going to any specialty clinic appointments.
