At the 2013 Kenai shareholder information meeting, CIRI presented a check in the amount of $50,000 to the Kenaitze Indian Tribe (KIT) as a donation toward the construction of the Dena’ina Wellness Center.
“CIRI commends the Kenaitze Indian Tribe for their vision and hard work developing the Dena’ina Wellness Center,” said Sophie Minich, president and CEO of CIRI. “Many of our shareholders will benefit from the innovative, patient-focused health care the new center will deliver.”
The 52,000 square-foot facility will provide integrated personal care to include medical,dental, behavioral health, optometry, chemical dependency, physical therapy, lab and X-ray, pharmacy and traditional healing services.
The construction of KIT’s Dena’ina Wellness Center remains on schedule for completion next winter.
