Ethel Lund Medical Center
Welcome to the Ethel Lund Medical Center (ELMC). We are pleased to be your medical provider of choice and encourage you to use this guide as a resource to help you and your family navigate ELMC’s clinics and find information about our services.
As part of the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC), ELMC in Juneau provides medical services in its state-of-the-art building, with a large-scale renovation completed in 2021.
Our clinic’s namesake, Ethel Lund, was one of the nine women that founded SEARHC in 1975. She first served on the Board of Directors, and then as Board President until 2000. She continues today as the President Emeritus.
With a strong belief that building healthy families requires integration of cultural practices, traditional medicines and foods, Mrs. Lund has provided dedication, leadership and a profound commitment to advance SEARHC into a nationally recognized tribal healthcare organization. Today, through her efforts and those of many others, SEARHC operates a regional hospital and provides a full array of health services that benefit all Southeast Alaska residents.

Our goal is to schedule your appointment with your Primary Care Provider or teammate at a time that is convenient for you. We believe that a team approach provides the continuity of care that improves and leads to healthier outcomes.
