Providence Health & Services has a long history of serving Alaska, beginning when the Sisters of Providence first brought health care to Nome in 1902 during the Gold Rush. This pioneering spirit set... more the standard for modern health care in Alaska and formed the foundation for Providence's growth as the state's leading health care provider.
Wonderfull ER service and care! We were on vacation and I became quite ill. No wait, and Doctor appeared before I was even in an exam room! No long waits, professional yet caring staff, and they even... more found medical issues my hometown ER missed (was sick for a couple weeks). Highly recommended by my niece (who is a local nurse) and now by my wife and I.
$1100 bill for getting some ear wax out? Ridiculous.
EDIT: Another $520 bill from another agency. Total $1620 to get some ear wax and blood out of one ear. Hahaha wooooow, I guess it's time for me... more to lawyer up (I already did - it cost me less than this bill).
My daughter was born here and was diagnosed with anchondroplasia. I was pleased with all the services provided. I feel like the nurses went out of their way to help me and answered all my questions. The... more doctors on the other hand were a little overwhelming due to how rare my daughter diagnosis is. They were trying to give us so much information all at once, I was only catching like 1 out of 5 things they were trying to explain to us about achondroplasia. But as soon as my spouse and I explained to them that we needed some room to breath, they backed off and sent just two people in to explain everything instead of 10 different doctors throughout the day. Good place.
