Overview of Providence Alaska Medical Center

Providence Health & Services has a long history of serving Alaska, beginning when the Sisters of Providence first brought health care to Nome in 1902 during the Gold Rush. This pioneering spirit set the standard for modern health care in Alaska and formed the foundation for Providence's growth as the state's leading health care provider.

The Mother-Baby Unit is only part of the new 85,782-square foot Maternity Center, which is designed to provide all aspects of maternity care. The Maternity Center project includes expansion and modernization of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit with 66 bassinets; the Prenatal Unit with 14 beds; and the Mother-Baby Unit with 31 beds.

Providence is committed to meeting Alaska's growing health care needs, both now and in the future. Alaska's projected population growth will expand the community's need for the services Providence provides over the next 25 years. Generations aims to address increased community need for health care services and the facility needs caused by the demands of new technology.
