Camai! Welcome!

Thank you for visiting and exploring the information on the revamped Southcentral Foundation website. SCF kicked off 2016 with a three-day Core Concepts training and 100 employees participated. In this training, we learn how to incorporate wellness into our work lives. This group of employees join SCF’s workforce who have already completed the three-day training.

Work together in relationship to learn and grow
Encourage understanding
Listen with an open mind
Laugh and enjoy humor throughout the day
Notice the dignity and value of ourselves and others
Engage others with compassion
Share our stories and our hearts
Strive to honor and respect ourselves and others

We share responsibility for health care. We are on a journey of wellness with one another as employees and in relationship with customer-owners.

Alaska Native people own and manage our health care system.  Alaska Native and American Indian people have ownership in driving initiatives.  Customer-owners own their own behaviors that affect health.

Our operational principal of relationships are fostered between employees and customer-owners. SCF encourages relationships between employees to improve health care delivery.

SCF serves a geographical service area which includes Anchorage and Mat-Su valley, Upper Kuskokwim villages, Iliamna Lake villages and the Aleut Community of St. Paul Island.  I appreciate all the 65,000 voices that represent the population we serve and who drive the improvements and enhancements of our Nuka System of Care.

I appreciate all SCF employees who have chosen SCF for their career home.  We are making progress in addressing health disparities, improving health statistics while driving down costs together!
