Your kind reviews help us reach future generations of Alaskans and grow our locally-owned business as we strive to provide the best family, pediatric, diabetes and occupational health care in Anchorage.

Thanksgiving Weekend Hours

Happy Thanksgiving to our Medical Park family and friends. In this most unusual holiday season, we are thankful for our colleagues working so dilligently on the front lines, our leaders for their tireless dedication to guiding us through the pandemic, and our patients and extended MPFC family for looking out for each other.  While Clinic will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, we will be open Friday and Saturday for normal business hours. 

COVID Vaccine Planning

There are many questions about the upcoming availability of vaccination against COVID-19. We, too, eagerly await this promising development! Currently, no vaccine against COVID-19 is available in Alaska. When it becomes available, distribution of vaccine will be directed by the Alaska State Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS). DHSS has a website with vaccine information. When we learn of vaccination opportunities for our patients, either through MPFC or elsewhere, rest assured that we will reach out through our website and patient portal with that information.

COVID Testing Policy Update

As demand for testing in Anchorage grows and the supply of test kits is less predictable, we have adjusted our MPFC COVID testing policy. We are no longer doing COVID testing for travel purposes in most circumstances. There are many alternative test sites in Anchorage which can be found at anchoragecovidtest.org (where you can learn which sites are testing TODAY) and throught the Municipality of Anchorage website. Thank you for understanding.

COVID Testing Updates

As COVID cases increase throughout Anchorage we are pleased to offer our established patients drive-up, rapid, molecular and PCR testing at MPFC. A few things to remember about our process:

1- Established patients of MPFC may be tested without a provider visit if they have no symptoms and require testing following direct contact with a COVID positive patient or for work, travel or mandate-related reasons. In this case, please call and asked to be placed on the COVID testing schedule for the day you require a test. You may show up at any time on that day between 9am and 5pm. Results are generally available within an hour or two.

2- Patients with symptoms of COVID, new patients or patients who have not been seen at MPFC in the last three years will need a provider telemedicine or in person appointment before testing. Please call to schedule an appointment with a provider if this is the case.

3- We are aware that testing supplies are limited nationally and locally and are doing our best to preserve what we have and plan ahead. As such, we are limiting contact-related testing to those patients who have had significant, direct exposure to someone with COVID. This means contact within 6 feet for greater than 15 minutes with or without a mask. If you have questions about whether this is the case, please visit the resources on our COVID web page, the CDC website, or call and speak with our COVID nurse.

4- If you have a business and would like you employees to be tested, please call our Occupational Health Department to discuss the options.

We are here for you. Please reach out for concerns about COVID or any other health concerns.
