The Native Village of Eklutna (NVE) and Southcentral Foundation (SCF) officially opened the newly expanded Eklutna Village Clinic on March 15. SCF assumed the medical-services portion of the community health center in late 2018. In addition to a full-time provider and primary care services, the clinic now offers dental, radiology and same-day appointments.
The clinic is open to Alaska Native and American Indian people, as well as non-Native people living in the Chugiak, Alaska, area. The clinic is a partnership between SCF and NVE, whose mission is to empower Idlughet Qayeht’ana (Eklutna Village Dena’ina) by promoting the history, culture and identity of its sovereign nation, and to assist in the education and well-being of the Tribe.
Eklutna Village Clinic is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and located at Mile 26.6 on the Glenn Highway, directly off the Eklutna Exit. For more information, visit http://eklutna-nsn.gov/departments/health-wellness.
