  • Valley Medical Care Hospitalist System (for patients)

     Valley Medical Care utilizes a hospitalist system for caring for patients who are hospitalized at Bartlett Regional Hospital. There will only be one physician available at the hospital at any given time, so if you are hospitalized, you may be cared for by a doctor who is not your primary provider. This system is widely used in the rest of the country. There are many benefits to this system for all of us. Doctors won't be called away from the clinic to attend to hospital emergencies nearly as often, making us more available during clinic hours. This should reduce the times that you are asked to reschedule appointments and should improve our efficiency in the office.
    We strive to offer the best care that we can to our patients and at this time, feel that this change is necessary to continue to do so.
    We thank you for allowing us to participate in your health care.
  • Doula Program

    Valley Medical Care is excited to work with the Juneau Community Doula Network to promote doula care for our expecting families. Doulas are trained professionals who provide physical, emotional and informational support to expectant parents, during the pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. Doulas work directly with families to establish a supportive connection that research shows improves birth experiences for families and may shorten labors and reduce complications.
    In an effort to promote doula care for our Valley Medical Care families, we have established a scholarship program to provide financial support to families who cannot afford independent doula care on their own. So far we have assisted 16 families. You can find more information on Doula care online at www.dona.org or www.juneaudoulas.org. For information on the Valley Medical Care doula scholarship, please contact Rachel Gladhart, CNM at 586-2434 or ask about it at your prenatal appointment.

  • Allowing Your Provider to Speak to Family Members

    According to federal HIPAA regulations, we cannot discuss your medical information with others without your permission. To make it easier for you and your provider to allow this communication, we have a form you can fill out indicating who we may speak to or indicating who you do not wish us to speak to about your medical care. This form does not allow for your records to be released to these individuals. You would still need to sign a records release form indicating what records you want and who they are to go to. The form for communication (Privacy Protection) and the Release of Information form to obtain medical records are available to download from our website.
