About the Organization
The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium is a non-profit Tribal health organization designed to meet the unique health needs of Alaska Native and American Indian people living in Alaska. In partnership with the Alaska Native and American Indian people that we serve and the Tribal health organizations of the Alaska Tribal Health System, ANTHC provides world-class health services, which include comprehensive medical services at the Alaska Native Medical Center, wellness programs, disease research and prevention, rural provider training and rural water and sanitation systems construction. The Consortium co-manages the Alaska Native Medical Center with Southcentral Foundation.
The Consortium is the largest, most comprehensive Tribal health organization in the United States, and Alaskas second-largest health employer with more than 3,000 employees offering an array of health services to people around the nations largest state.
Our vision: Alaska Native people are the healthiest people in the world.
Our vision is not only an ambitious statement but the guiding principle in all that the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium does. We envision Alaska Native people and the Tribal health system as health leaders.
The inspiration for that vision, and the foundation for achieving it, is based in the strength of our Alaska Native people and our cultures. We have the tools for physical, mental and community health to protect and perpetuate our Alaska Native cultures and traditions. To achieve the vision that Alaska Native people are the healthiest people in the world, ANTHC works with patients, Tribal partners, employees, government and nonprofit partners, and others who share common objectives.
