Alaska

Alaska’s PCO and PCA successfully and rapidly grew their CHC program from two health centers serving approximately 12,000 people, to 24 centers serving over 80,000 with their Alaska Frontier Initiative. Additionally, the two organizations received authorization for the Frontier Extended Stay Clinic (FESC) demonstration projects, which examines the effectiveness and appropriateness of a new type of provider, the FESC, in providing health care services in certain remote locations.
