Special Funding Need: New ANTHC Patient Housing

More than half of the patients at the Alaska Native Medical Center hospital travel from outside Anchorage to access a broad variety of health services. The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium is committed to ensuring that a lack of housing does not impact those seeking care. We are pleased to announce the opening of a new patient housing facility in early 2017. Our priorities are expanding services and support for our people who need care and providing a “home away from home” environment that facilities rest and recovery.

3x more capacity for patients and loved ones

Conveniently located on the Alaska Native Health Campus

Saves the State of Alaska $8 million per year

Our Vision: Alaska Native people are the healthiest people in the world.

ANMC’s Quyana House has provided 54 semi-private rooms adjacent to our hospital for many years. ANTHC also contracts with local hotels to ensure that there is enough housing for everyone who needs it. But that is not enough. In response to this need, ANTHC has made patient housing a top priority. The care and comfort of our patients and families is of the utmost importance to us.

Facility Amenities:

  • 202 rooms over six floors, including a designated floor for new families
  • Direct connection to the ANMC hospital by sky-bridge
  • Gathering areas, separate dining and communal kitchens, and a business center
  • Access to nearby walking trails and a courtyard garden
  • A restful environment for healing and recovery

Resources and Documents

ANMC patients benefit from:

  • Increased capacity: 202 rooms triples our current capacity.
  • Better access: Patient lodging will be located on campus and will provide direct access to the hospital for Elders, expectant mothers, and our other patients.
  • Increased care for expectant mothers: For patients with high-risk pregnancies traveling from other regions, ANMC is a home away from home. These expectant families must come to Anchorage for the last 4-6 weeks of the mother’s pregnancy so they can have immediate access to hospital care. This new housing facility will ensure a convenient and nurturing experience for the whole family.
  • Expanded Opportunity: This new housing provides another positive step on the care continuum for ANMC patients.

The special announcement was made in January 2016 by the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) about Alaska’s first Ronald McDonald House coming to Alaska. LeeAnn Garrick with ANTHC explains what this means for children in Alaska who need medical care.
