About the AREA:
Located in Bristol Bay Alaska area.
About the GROUP:
In 2013 we marked 40 years of tribal health care operation and management for the people of Bristol Bay. However, the history of organized health care in Bristol Bay is much longer. Prior to the coming of the Russians in 1818, the primary health care provider was the “angalkuk” or shaman. Doctors first came into Bristol Bay when the canneries opened in 1885. In 1904 Dr. Joseph Herman Romig opened a hospital in Carmel. It remained open in 1913 when Dr. Linus Hiram French relocated the hospital to Kanakanak and took over one of two school buildings. In 2013 Kanakanak Hospital marked 100 years of providing health care to the people of Bristol Bay.
