OUR HISTORY
IN OCTOBER OF 1997
The story changed.

In October 1997, Ketchikan Indian Corporation (KIC) negotiated with the Indian Health Service under a PL 93-638 Title I Compact, to provide health care services in Ketchikan, Alaska excluding the Organized Village of Saxman residents. The following year KIC negotiated a Title III Compact to include Saxman residents. Currently the KIC Tribal Health Clinic operates under a Title V Compact. The Council has an eight-member committee that recommends policy, long-term goals, and program expansion that meets monthly. Membership includes both Ketchikan and Saxman IRA Council representatives, three KIC At-Large members and one Saxman At-Large member.

Since assuming the health care services, the Clinic has seen many positive changes, including patient visit increase, construction of a new freestanding, ambulatory health facility (April 2000), a new behavioral health facility (July 2018) increased funding through grant resources and expanded services, including a diabetes program, optometry, and lab services.

The Clinic has been accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) since November 2002. The Tribe has a successful Safety Program that ensures compliance with OSHA, NFPA, and other regulatory agencies.
