Alaska Native Medical Center sees big rise in patients

Visits to the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage have increased dramatically since its opening eight years ago.

In the past two years alone, clinic visits increased 49.5 percent. Inpatient admissions increased 24.7 percent, surgeries increased 10.5 percent and births increased 4.2 percent.

The influx has the facility looking for more space. Administrators are also seeking more input from the community. They held a listening conference yesterday.
