Services include Inpatient Hospital Care, Critical and Acute Care, Surgical Services, an array of outpatient specialties and short-term housing for out-of-town visitors. MEMC is currently making additional upgrades and expanding its state-of-the-art healthcare facility.
Wrangell Medical Center (WMC) is a Critical Access hospital and Long-Term Care facility with a 14-bed Long-Term Care unit and an eight-bed Acute Care unit. The new facility opened in February 2021 as part of a 44,500 square foot expansion project of the healthcare campus. Essential services available include Emergency Services, Acute Care, Transitional Care, Primary Care, Long-Term Care and ancillary hospital services. At WMC, a registered nurse is available in-person 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while a physician is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. WMC collaborates with medical providers throughout the region, and any patient that requires a higher level of care will be medically evacuated to another facility.
