It started as a trailer in 1974, but now the Anchorage Neighborhood Health Center (ANHC) has a new facility with more than 140 members on staff.
Tammy Green, the CEO of ANHC, talked about National Health Center Awareness Week as well as what health centers do.
Green describes her facility as a “one-stop shop” for patients. ANHC has full dentistry, pharmacy, lab and radiology services on location.
One of the benefits, she added, was that health centers serve everyone in the community with attention to language, financial or cultural barriers.
