ANMC’s general surgeons are all board certified by the American Board of Surgery and are members of the American College of Surgeons and are instrumental in ANMC’s Level II Trauma designation.

ANMC is committed to providing optimal care to the traumatically injured patient. In 1999, ANMC earned verification through the American College of Surgeons and designation from the State of Alaska as a Level II Trauma Center. Since then, ANMC had been successfully reverified by ACS six times, continuing to maintain its status as a Level II Trauma Center. As both an Adult and Pediatric Level II Trauma Center, ANMC provides 24-hour coverage from general surgery, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery anesthesiology, emergence medicine, radiology and critical care.
