“Living Well”


Yakutat Community Health Center provides high quality primary care medical services for patients of all ages.   From routine and preventive care, to care for more complicated or chronic conditions, we are here to meet the medical needs of families, individuals and visitors in our community.

“Our goal is to improve the health and well-being of our patients by preventing illness and treating patients in a holistic, comprehensive and compassionate way.”

Our practice uses an “integrated” care model that combines services for both physical and emotional symptoms in one visit.  This integrated care model recognizes that stress and other psychological problems can affect one’s health, just as physical ailments can impact one’s mental well-being. This holistic approach provides a successful outcome for each patient more likely.  Since Behavioral Health Services and primary care services are located within the same building, referrals for either service can happen on the same day and/or during a medical visit.


It is the policy of Yakutat Community Health Center to make health care affordable by offering a sliding scale discount to patients who qualify based on family size and income level in accordance with the Federal Poverty Guidelines as published and updated annually in the Federal Register. According to this policy, patients are responsible for the payment of minimum charges or discounted charges after the discount has been taken.  To see if you qualify for a discounted rate, please download and complete our Sliding Fee Application here.

Continuity of Care

YCHC providers perform case management and assist patients in coordinating hospital care. Continuity of care is ensured through coordination of hospital services and discussions between the primary care provider and the physician or hospitalist at the care facility. Both systems provide communication back to YCHC. Providers at the hospitals are well-versed in dealing with patients from rural or remote villages and communicate with local providers on a regular basis.
