Now in our 94th year, Petersburg Medical Center continues to serve the residents and guests of Petersburg with up-to-date, quality medical services.
Our primary care clinic, home health service and long-term care center are fully integrated with the acute care hospital. Emergency care is available 24 hours a day.
Owned by the City of Petesburg, the medical center is a charter member of the Alaska Small Hospital Performance Improvement Network (ASHPIN) and the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association (ASHNHA).
We truly care about your health. This is your medical center, providing convenient, optimum health care in your home community.
The hospital organization that is now Petersburg Medical Center had its beginning in 1917, when a three-story wooden home on 2nd Street was purchased and converted into a medical facility that began operating as a hospital that same year.
The assets were transferred to the city of Petersburg on May 1, 1921, and it has been owned and operated by the city of Petersburg ever since.
A replacement hospital was built and occupied in January 1955, and a long-term care wing of 12 beds was added in 1969. The current acute care nursing floor and outpatient services are housed in a building completed in 1984 and a physicians’ clinic added in 1994 to make up the current facility configuration.
Now known as Petersburg Medical Center, the organization has a long-standing reputation for providing quality medical care and compassionate service.
