Sand Point Health Clinic
Sand Point is 2½ hours by air to Anchorage. Weather permitting, a seriously injured person can be at the hospital in 6 hours. However, Sand Point is very fortunate to have a community health clinic that offers excellent care to both the citizens and visitors in Sand Point. The clinic was built by the City in 2005/6 and is operated by the Eastern Aleutians Tribes (EAT), who provide Medical, Dental, and Behavioral Health services to the community. The City, along with the Denali Commission, the Rasmuson Foundation, USDA, the State of Alaska, and both Community Development Block grants and Indian Community Development Block grants all put funding toward this $6 million investment for the health and well-being of the community.
