SEARHC was established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act as a non-profit health consortium which serves the health interests of the residents of Southeast Alaska. The intent of this legislation was to have Indian Health Service programs and facilities turned over to tribal management. Our contracting with IHS began in 1976 when we took over management of the Community Health Aides Program. In 1982, we took over operation of the IHS Juneau clinic, now the Ethel Lund Medical Center, and took over operation of Sitka’s Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in 1986. We are one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the nation.
Provide medical nutrition therapy at Ethel Lund Medical Center, for patients of all ages and a variety of medical diagnoses.
The most difficult decisions or recommendations are analyzing disease states and providing Medical Nutrition Therapy. The Clinical Dietitian must have the knowledge and ability to provide patient education and therapy for a wide variety of disease states. The Dietitian must be able to customize the nutrition education based on the disease state, patient’s stage of readiness and lifestyle. It is important to work as part of an interdisciplinary team with other medical/clinic staff to coordinate the patient’s care.
At SEARHC, we see our employees as our strongest assets. It is our priority to further their development and our organization by aiding in their professional advancement. Working at SEARHC is more than a job, it’s a fulfilling career.
We offer generous benefits, including retirement, paid time off, paid parental leave, health, dental, and vision benefits, life insurance and long and short-term disability, and more.
