May 7, 2024

The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium Board of Directors announced that Valerie Nurr’araluk Davidson has transitioned out of her role as President/CEO, and thanked her for guiding the institution through a season of transformation. ANTHC Executive Vice President Natasha Singh will serve as Interim President/CEO. 

“Three years ago, Valerie was brought in to support the transition of the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium out of a leadership crisis. She brought stability and set the organization on a bright path to achieve our strategic goals,” said ANTHC Board Chair Kimberley Strong. “Valerie supported the remarkable transformation of the organization, attracted new talent to join our workforce, and made meaningful improvements, such as investing in the Alaska Native Medical Center’s Emergency Department, necessary to sustain this progress. We thank Valerie for her service to ANTHC and the people that we serve during her three-year commitment. The Board has full confidence in Natasha’s ability to lead the organization during this transition.” 

Since Valerie assumed the role as President/CEO in March 2021, the organization committed to making two of the largest health facilities investments in its history, secured over $1 billion for the construction of sanitation systems in rural Alaska, improved the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital star rating at the Alaska Native Medical Center for the first time in the hospital’s history, improved access to Patient Housing, and improved the organization’s financial health.

Natasha is a Stevens Village Tribal citizen. For the past two years, Natasha worked alongside Valerie in the organization’s operations and efforts to implement ANTHC’s strategic priorities. Prior to working at ANTHC, Natasha most recently served as General Counsel for Tanana Chiefs Conference (TCC) for over 10 years. During her tenure at TCC, she was part of the team that oversaw the Joint Venture to build and staff the Chief Andrew Isaac Health Center in Fairbanks, and the construction of sub-regional and village clinics. Natasha represents the Alaska Tribes as the co-lead negotiator for the Alaska Tribal Health Compact and is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Law and Dartmouth College.
