About SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium:
SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) was established under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act. The intent of this legislation was to have Indian Health Service (IHS) programs and facilities turned over to tribal management. SEARHC began their contracting with IHS in 1976 when they assumed management of the Community Health Aides Program. In 1982, SEARHC assumed management of the IHS Juneau clinic and in 1986 it assumed management of Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital. The consortium's highest priority is responsiveness to the needs of the communities it serves. The tribal governing body in each community has a seat on the SEARHC Board of Directors. The consortium maintains strong ties to its communities, its culture and to its tribal elders. Wherever possible they incorporate traditional Native culture practices and values into its health care delivery system. For more information, visit http://www.searhc.org.
