About SCF

Southcentral Foundation is an Alaska Native-owned, nonprofit health care organization serving nearly 65,000 Alaska Native and American Indian people living in Anchorage, Matanuska-Susitna Valley and 55 rural villages in the Anchorage Service Unit.

Incorporated in 1982 under the tribal authority of Cook Inlet Region, Inc., Southcentral Foundation is the largest of the CIRI nonprofits, employing more than 2,000 people in more than 80 programs.

A wide range of health and wellness services are provided to some 51,000 Alaska Native and American Indian people living in the Municipality of Anchorage, Matanuska-Susitna Borough, and nearby villages. SCF also provides health care to an additional 14,000 residents of 55 rural villages in the Anchorage Service Unit, an area stretching 107,400 square miles across Southcentral Alaska – from the Aleutian and Pribilof Islands in the west to the Canadian border.

In 1998, SCF established the Village Service Management Team, which serves as a liaison between the organization and tribal representatives from within the ASU. The members advise SCF’s Board of Directors on the health care needs of their villages and help village residents understand services available to them.

Southcentral Foundation provides a wide variety of employment opportunities within the following divisions:

Behavioral Services, Executive and Tribal Services, Finance, Medical Services, Office of the President, Organizational Development and Innovation and Resource and Development.

“One of the best things about SCF is that as an organization we all understand the need for us to have work/life balance, and it is completely embedded in our culture here.”

Highlights of Working at SCF

SCF offers multiple nursing roles. Primary care and pediatric nurses work collaboratively one on one with providers to provide whole-person, population based care in a team based environment. With integrated pharmacists, nutritionists, and behavioral health co-located in the clinics, nurses have multiple resources to provide excellent care coordination and follow up. Nurses at SCF build relationships with their customers as well as their interdisciplinary team members. Whether in an outpatient clinic or other areas of the organization providing care, nurses are a respected member of the team.

  • Work Monday – Friday with an occasional evening and Saturday shift, depending on department
  • Practice at top of license in integrated care team environment
Nurses have a unique role as team leaders in their care teams. While each member has an important part of the overall care of the customer-owner, it’s the case manager who orchestrates and confirms the tasks being done by each. SCF also has a mentorship program in which nurses meet with their mentor at least monthly—and more often as necessary—for help, advice, and shared experiences. All-in-all, there are many tools in place to help you feel supported to do your best!”

Monica Stout, RN
