Construction Information

At the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC), the health care services we provide for women and children are referred to as Maternal Child Health (MCH) services. Those services include more than 20 clinics and programs located throughout the ANMC hospital and Anchorage Native Primary Care Center. These groups work together to provide a coordinated system of care equipped to handle the complete range of women’s and children’s health issues, from routine checkups to the most serious medical conditions.

ANMC’s MCH services are rapidly expanding through upgraded facilities, additional services, and better access to care. We are creating a center of excellence for the highest quality care, as well as a place of security and comfort for women, children and their families.

As part of this commitment, we are in the midst of a multiyear renovation project to upgrade the Maternity Center, Inpatient Pediatrics and the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units (NICU and PICU).

We have expanded our care teams in areas such as high-risk obstetrics (high-risk pregnancy care), pediatric subspecialties (care of the lungs, glands, joints, brain and kidneys), speech therapy and various others. New team members add expertise to an already impressive group of providers and staff, as well as help improve access to a wide range of high-quality and specialized services.

We have also boosted our employee and customer-owner outreach to help provide useful and consistent health resources such as service brochures, health information materials and webpages. Outreach efforts also include discussion groups, one-on-one interviews, and regular department presentations, which allow us to receive ongoing employee and customer input as we continue improving the MCH departments.

We look forward to hearing from you as we continue to work alongside the Alaska Native community to protect the health of babies, children, mothers, aunties and grandmothers across Alaska.
