Cordova Community Medical Center is a Critical Access Hospital. We offer 24 hour a day 7 days a week emergency care to the Cordova community. Care is provided without regard to the patient’s ability to pay. Our ER is staffed through an on-call roster of Emergency Medicine and Family Medicine physicians. Patients coming to the emergency room can expect to be seen by the physician within 30 minutes of their arrival. After being seen by a physician, if your condition is not emergent you may be referred to our Primary Care Clinic.
For emergencies requiring surgery, critical care, specialty care or diagnostic testing not available in Cordova, patients will be stabilized and transferred to another facility. Facilities most commonly used are in Anchorage and include Alaska Regional Hospital, Providence Alaska Medical Center, and Alaska Native Medical Center. This is based on your preference, the availability of services and your insurance.
