Two health centers in Kodiak and more than two dozen others in Alaska will receive federal funding to hire additional doctors and expand primary care services.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said the $5.3 million in funding through the federal health care law will help the centers reach more than 7,700 new patients.
The Kodiak Area Native Association will receive $187,000, while the Kodiak Island Health Care Foundation is in line for $196,142.
The Department of Health estimates the funding will allow for longer hours and expanded services, including dental, vision or mental and behavioral health services. It also will allow for the hiring of 40 additional staff members across the state.
