Dena'ina Wellness Center Construction

Artist's Rendering of New Dena'ina Wellness Center

Kenaitze Indian Tribe received an Indian Health Service (IHS) Joint Venture award to operate a health care facility in 2011. The new Dena’ina Wellness Center went from the artist's rendering, above, and a ground breaking ceremony, below, to operational - on budget and on time - in less than two years.

 

The Dena’ina Wellness Center was one of only three projects nationwide selected by IHS for the highly competitive program in FY 2011. Under the agreement, the tribe designed and constructed the new facility, with IHS providing funding for its operation and maintenance for a minimum of 20 years.

 

The Kenaitze Indian Tribe is thankful to the State of Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development's Community and Regional Affairs; The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority; M J Murdock Charitable Trust, Cook Inlet Region, Inc.; Rasmuson Foundation and many, many community supporters. The doors are open because you cared.
