Health

Mt. Edgecumbe High School works with South East Alaska Regional Health Corporation (SEARHC) to provide medical services to our students.  We operate a certified clinic housed in Heritage Hall.  Students who are sick during the school day will be monitored by medical professional and will stay in a designated sick bay. The medical staff will also makes medical appointments (including physicals, eye exams, dental/orthodontic exams, etc.) with medical, visual, and dental service providers located in the community.  Arrangements are made for the students' transportation to and from these medical appointments. Parents are encouraged to call the school medical staff with concerns or information regarding the physical or mental well being of their child.  School Administration has the utmost level of confidence in our school nurse’s skills & professionalism.  We will support their decisions concerning health care.

The Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Hospital is located next to the school's campus. SEARHC operates this facility under a contract with the Indian Health Service (IHS). Students who provide documentation of their Alaska Native/American Indian heritage receive these services free of charge. Parents of non-Native students, as well as Native students without documentation of IHS eligibility, are responsible for payment of all medical services provided at Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital.

Professional counseling staff is available to students on campus. Other mental health services are located in the community and are made available if students find themselves in need of additional help.
