It also co-owns and manages the Anchorage Native Primary Care Center and several clinics in the Anchorage Service Unit and Mat-Su Valley.

With 898 providers and 108 clinics, Swedish Medical Group is the largest such group in Washington.

Over time, the program has developed a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to achieve a mission of improving the health and well-being of American Indian and Alaska Native people of all ages.
