During the COVID-19 pandemic, Southcentral Foundation Obstetrics and Gynecology clinic is open normal hours: Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Services available at this time include prenatal care, urgent care for customer-owners in clinic, and some urgent gynecology. For inpatient care at the Alaska Native Medical Center hospital, there are two different areas for care: OB Triage and the laboring rooms (L&D). OB triage is not allowing any visitors with customer-owners during this time.
