Long ago, doctors used to make house calls via dog sled teams to outlying “Bush” communities. Those days, however, are long gone. Today, Fairbanks is a regional hub for healthcare in Alaska’s Interior. Dog sleds have been replaced by air ambulances and flight medics.

Our community hospital, the Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, is a JCAHO accredited facility with 152 licensed beds. An Imaging Center and Cardiology Clinic have been added as well as a recently expanded Emergency Department to meet the needs of our community. This state of the art medical facility, and is co-located with the Denali Center, an extended care facility.

We have many medical clinics providing the highest possible standard of comprehensive medical, holistic, and surgical care. Social and mental health services are also provided by many non-profit organizations throughout the Fairbanks North Star Borough. The Boys and Girls Home and Family Services, Inc. is one of many mental health/ social services offered in Fairbanks.

Fairbanks also offers complete services for seniors including nursing homes, home health care, assisted living facilities, adult day care and private health care options.
