New hospital to create jobs, improve health


The Norton Sound Regional Hospital in Nome, Alaska, has been awarded $90.5 million in funds by The Indian Health Services (IHS) to replace a 61-year-old hospital currently serving 10,000 users. These funds were provided through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
IHS Press Release:

“These Recovery Act funds will provide critical assistance to American Indian and Alaska Native communities,” said IHS Director Yvette Roubideaux. “These funds will help improve health care, create jobs and make our native communities stronger.”

The facility, slated for completion in 2012 will create over 100 jobs during the peak of construction.
