Delay expected during registration software upgrade
SITKA - The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) will undergo a computer software upgrade at all clinics starting Tuesday, May 27. Patients may experience delays in the check-in process as staff members enter and verify patient demographics and insurance information.

Patients are asked to bring photo identification and insurance cards when coming in for scheduled appointments. The delays are anticipated only during a patient's first visit after the upgrade.

For any questions, please call your main SEARHC clinic number and ask to speak with the Patient Access Department. In Sitka, the Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital Patient Access direct number is 966-8437. In Juneau, the Ethel Lund Medical Center main number is 463-4040.
