Here, with our large rural population, telehealth is not a new thing for many Alaskans. Prior to the pandemic, telehealth services were created to support rural and underserved patients gain access to specialists when local help was severely limited. But, early in 2020, it is well documented (and unsurprising) that telehealth usage surged as patients and providers sought ways to safely access and deliver healthcare, and in the two years since, key trends have emerged that will undoubtedly continue to shape the future of telehealth services.
Telehealth provides the healthcare industry with so many advantages that although we are starting to see the end of this pandemic, the utilization of this revolutionary technology will continue far into the future.

Our goal is to provide the right care at the right time in the right setting. By expanding our services close to where people live and work, patients will have access to convenient care – when and where they want it.
Our ambulatory care network includes:
Providence is excited to make everyday health and wellness even more convenient for the communities we serve through an expanded ambulatory care network.
