Our Mission

With the help of generous donors like you, PeaceHealth Ketchikan is able to meet each patient’s many needs through their healthcare journey, including physical, emotional, financial and spiritual. Charitable support of our services changes lives and brings strength and comfort to patients when they need it most. Thank you for helping to make our lifesaving and life-affirming care possible.

“Without Ketchikan Medical Center, I most likely would not be able to share this note today. At the risk of being over dramatic, yet another life has been saved, and that one happens to be mine. Amazing care happens so often here that it starts to seem ordinary. But it truly is not. It is extraordinary. I was on the receiving end this time, and I am beyond words grateful.” 

— PeaceHealth patient, after receiving life-saving care in our Emergency Department—the very care your gifts make happen, thank you.
