ABOUT US


Kodiak Community Health Center
Your Medical Home



KCHC is a family medicine clinic caring for patients ages newborn to seniors. We are a Federally-Qualified Health Center (FQHC) located on the beautiful island of Kodiak, Alaska. We serve all patients, accept all insurances, and offer discounted fees to patients who qualify.







Our History & Services

Kodiak Community Health Center began operations in January 2004 and has grown rapidly in response to the high level of community need and positive response to the exceptional care we provide our patients. We offer healthcare services to everyone in our community – insured, uninsured and under-insured. KCHC is a Federally Qualified Health Center, and a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).  

Our comprehensive, state-of-the-art health center is staffed with experienced physicians, mid-level providers, a behavioral health professional, nurse case managers, as well as other healthcare professionals. We are open Monday through Saturday, with evening and same day appointments available. We are conveniently located adjacent to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center at 1911 E. Rezanof Drive.  

Our center and healthcare professionals strive to provide high-quality, affordable healthcare to our entire community by offering a full range of primary care medical services. We also provide referral arrangements for mental health treatment and counseling, substance abuse service and specialty care.  

Kodiak Community Health Center is proud to also offer enabling services not found in traditional medical practices such as the Sliding Fee Discount Program based on family size and income level for the uninsured and those with a limited income, and ESL translators (Spanish and Tagalog) which are available on-site.

 

Each year HRSA-funded health center grantees are required to report a core set of information, including data on patient demographics, services provided, clinical indicators, utilization rates, costs, and revenues.

What is a Community Health Center?


A community health center is a non-profit, community-owned health care provider offering services to all citizens, including those with low income levels and/or are medically under-served. For more than 40 years, the national network of community health centers (also known as federally qualified health centers) have provided high quality, affordable primary care and prevention services to everyone in the community, regardless of their ability to pay for those services. We are the community’s health care safety net.


One very unique aspect of a community health center organization is its governance. Each community health center has a governing body, composed of volunteers from the community. At least 51% of the board members must be consumers of the community health center’s services. The board works very closely with the medical staff and administration of our health center.


This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service entity under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).

 



Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA)


What is the FTCA?


The Federally Supported Health Centers Assistance Act of 1992 and 1995 granted medical malpractice liability protection through the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) to HRSA-supported health centers. Under the Act, health centers are considered Federal employees and are immune from lawsuits, with the Federal government acting as their primary insurer. Kodiak Community Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center deemed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau of Primary Health Care and thus is covered by FTCA for our malpractice liability insurance.
