Our Mission

We exist to provide compassionate and comprehensive primary care to the entire Kodiak community.

Our History and 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.
