Alaska Native People working in partnership to provide the best healthcare for our communities
Partnering with our communities to promote a healthy balance of mind, body, and spirit
The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) is a distinguished non-profit health consortium dedicated to providing comprehensive healthcare services to the residents of Southeast Alaska. Established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act, SEARHC has played a pivotal role in advancing the health and well-being of the Alaskan communities it serves.
SEARHC’s history is one of resilience, innovation, and community collaboration. What began as a response to the unique healthcare needs of Alaska’s remote and diverse populations has evolved into a model of integrated care that encompasses medical, dental, behavioral health, and community-based services.
