Check-In/Out Process at the clinic: If you are new to the area or are departing Juneau you should check-in or check-out with the clinic to ensure that you know your benefits whether you are settling in Juneau or are hitting the road to your new duty station. Checking-in to a new unit is a busy time and we want to ensure that all newcomers are briefed on all the great benefits you are entitled to through the Juneau Clinic.

*** Please ensure to bring your health records and command check-in/out sheets.

After Hours Urgent Care: Outside of normal posted clinic hours, all Active Duty personnel are responsible for contacting the Duty HS prior to seeking urgent/non-life threatening care at (907) 723-0488.

Active Duty Emergency Room Visit Follow-Up Policy: Active duty personnel that are seen at the local urgent care or emergency room must follow-up with their Primary Care Manager (Juneau Clinic) on the next business day following discharge from the Hospital ER or sooner as the circumstances dictate. This is to ensure that your doctor is kept current on your health care needs and can take appropriate action on any recommendations made by the ER physician.

Emergency Services: The Juneau Clinic does not have an "emergency room"; if you need emergency medical care, dial 911. Patients requiring ambulance emergency service will be taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital emergency room via the local Ambulance Service.
