A New Vision of How to Deliver Healthcare
Alaska Urological Institute was the first urological practice in the state.
It’s hard to believe that our doors opened over 30 years ago.
During that time, the Alaska Urological Institute has been at the forefront
of many new technologies and treatments. Some of those included pediatric
urology, lithotripsy, robotic surgery, cryotherapy, clinical trials and
Giving Back to the Community
Alaska Medical Specialties has always been dedicated to giving back to
the community and ready to lend a hand, supporting local fundraisers and
We know how important events like The Women’s Run are to our community
and we are proud sponsors of this year’s event. And we had a lot
of fun with our “Save the Jugs” campaign!
When it comes to helping Alaskans in need, we are proud to have offered
more than $3 million of free care last year.
Commitment to High Quality Care in Alaska
As with any practice, it is necessary to keep up with the times. As our
patient base grew to 17,000, it was time for us to look at how we could
better serve the people of Alaska and so began the vision of Alaska Medical
How does a vision become reality? If you ask Doctors William Clark and
Robert Allen and CEO Tina Presley, it is dedication and determination
to provide Alaskans with the best medical care possible, without patients
leaving the state. Watching patients leave the state to receive quality
cancer treatment was not acceptable for this dynamic trio.
Alaska Medical Specialties is committed to bringing the latest technologies
and advanced treatment options to our patients sooner.
Family, home, community and excellent medical care needed to be available
here in Alaska for all patients. Thus, we began the journey to create
a new vision of healthcare. We were committed to providing all the resources
and technology of a large healthcare center, but on a more personal scale.
An Integrative Care Approach to Medicine
Having a staff of doctors who are experts in one or more specialties, a
team approach to patient care and a patient-centered staff set the foundation
for the project.
It took three years and what often seemed like insurmountable obstacles,
but in February 2013, Alaska Urological Institute and our new venture,
Alaska Cancer Treatment Center, joined Alaska Medical Specialties to become
the first sub-specialty, comprehensive care center in Alaska.
We are pleased to now offer these services: oncology and hematology, radiation
therapy, office-based procedures, in-house imaging, advanced robotic surgery,
lithotripsy, clinical trials and women’s health services. It is
with great pride that we share our vision of delivering better healthcare
