of the Site and Facility Master Plan
January 12, 2009
Starting in May 2008, hundreds of participants have attended more than 50 meetings to help plan for future changes in the hospital, ancillary, support services, and clinics.
Ketchikan General Hospital CEO, Patrick Branco, said "The diversity of participants, including physicians, other health care providers, employees, community representatives, patients and family members, have contributed to the outcome. We feel the plan is truly the best alternative to meet projected demand, accommodate changes in service, and enable evolution to allow KGH to deliver exceptional medicine and compassionate care well into the future."

is part of PeaceHealth, a Bellevue, WA-based not-for-profit health
care system with medical centers and clinics in Alaska, Washington
and Oregon that serves more than 57,000 patients annually. Sponsored
by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace, Ketchikan General Hospital
has provided exceptional medicine and compassionate care to residents
of Southeast Alaska since 1923.
