Approved Clinics

In collaboration with the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT), the DHSS Office of Healthcare Access maintains the list on this site. The list constitutes medical clinics deemed eligible by OHA for further consideration by DOT for a "Day Medical Clinic" sign.

Day Medical Clinic Signs

The placing of a "Day Medical Clinic" sign is intended to enhance public safety by providing direction to medical clinics at locations where there are no nearby hospitals.

It is required that sign(s) announcing the location of a “Day Medical Clinic” must show the clinic’s business hours in order to avoid drawing people to closed facilities during an emergency.
