ANTHC Regional Liaisons

Traveling to a hospital or specialty clinics we are unfamiliar with, to receive the care we need, can be difficult. For many Alaskans, the journey to healing often begins with traveling to Anchorage to access a higher level of medical care than is available in our home community. This means navigating a community that is not our own and all the logistics that come along with making it to our medical appointment.

ANTHC Regional Liaisons are here to help! Our Regional Liaisons are available to support patients in rural communities when they are traveling to Anchorage for care at the Alaska Native Medical Center.


ANTHC Regional Liaisons can:

  • Communicate, coordinate and provide patient assistance with clinics and health care providers.
  • Look up travel details, such as clinic appointment dates/times, check status of travel and lodging request, and make confirmations at Patient Housing.
  • Follow up on appointment referrals to assist patients.
  • Work with Tribal health partners for information needed in home regions.

Regional liaisons are locally-hired within respective Tribal health regions, ready and available to help patients closer to home. See information below to find a Regional Liaison who can help you during your healing journey.
