SEARHC Announces Cardiology Service Expansion at Ethel Lund Medical Center in Juneau, Bringing Specialized Care Closer to Home

JUNEAU, Alaska – SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) is elevating the care and technology available to patients and their families throughout Southeast Alaska with the addition of cardiology services, now available at Ethel Lund Medical Center in Juneau. This expansion further demonstrates SEARHC’s commitment to bringing care closer to home and being a provider of choice for the communities of Southeast Alaska.

Every month, nearly 100 SEARHC patients are referred by their primary care providers for cardiac-related specialty care. Many of these patients, upwards of 40 percent, depending on the specialty, have historically needed to leave Southeast Alaska to receive the necessary care. While SEARHC enjoys strong partnerships with Swedish Health Services in Seattle, Washington and Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage, we are continuing our efforts to keep care closer to home and improve access by providing direct cardiology services.

With the recent addition of two cardiologists in Juneau, Drs. David Good and David Trowbridge, SEARHC is better positioned to ensure patients receive the highest standard of care from evaluation to diagnosis, to treatment and personalized, ongoing therapy recommendations. These providers will work in collaboration with our robust primary care team, as part of our integrated care delivery system, to ensure our patients get the best cardiac care possible.

“We are thrilled to welcome Drs. Good and Trowbridge to the SEARHC care team. With our robust diagnostic capabilities and these highly credentialed providers, we are well positioned to deliver excellent and much needed cardiac care to the people of Southeast,” said Dr. Elliot Bruhl, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer. “SEARHC offers patients access to a suite of non-invasive cardiac tests and technologies to evaluate their heart health. The addition of Drs. Good and Trowbridge will afford greater continuity of care to the patients we serve.”

Dr. David Good brings a wealth of diverse experience and expertise to his cardiology practice within SEARHC. In addition to his practice at SEARHC, Dr. Good currently serves as the Commander of the 477th Aerospace Medical Detachment (AMDF) stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER), near Anchorage. Dr. Good has won several research awards, grants and military decorations and serves as a Board Member for the Cardiovascular Disease Section of the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Dr. David Trowbridge is a seasoned physician with a background in military, tribal and non-profit healthcare. He has dedicated more than 27 years to serving diverse patient populations across the United States. In addition to providing cardiac-related care at SEARHC, Dr. Trowbridge remains a member of the cardiology team at Providence Medford Medical Center in Medford, Oregon, where he continues to make a significant impact on patient care.
