About our project
The problem we solve: Mountain View is an historic neighborhood of Anchorage, Alaska that currently has no local health care center. Residents often rely on the emergency room for urgent or primary care needs.
About our solution:
Mountain View Urgent Care will fill the need for a conveniently located comprehensive medical care center that takes all insurance plans and offers discounted rates.
We are getting close to opening on August 1, 2018. With an eager staff, a beautiful facility, and two family physicians, we are almost ready. We still need to purchase a portable x-ray machine and lab equipment, finish building the arctic entry, and spruce up our rooms for our first visitors.

Bio: I'm a life-long Alaskan, prior independent commercial fisherman who went to college with the idea of serving Alaska’s rural communities. While in medical school, the Mountain View community sparked my interest as the most diverse neighborhood in the United States. During my long road of medical education including completing post-graduate training at Ventura Family Medicine Residency, I kept my interest in serving the Mountain View community. Now that the time is right, and with a whole team of helpers, I'm excited to see Mountain View Urgent Care open on August 1st.

Mountain View Urgent Care will offer a local health care center to the Mountain View community. We will be able to take care of most urgent health care needs and help patients save money and avoid the emergency room while receiving great medical care for their non-emergency needs.
Intellectual Property Summary
Using an urgent care for non-emergency medical conditions has been shown to save money versus receiving the same care at an emergency room.
This is not needed.

Mountain View Urgent Care offers high quality and convenient urgent medical services for all of Anchorage, but we intend to become the premier local medical provider in the Mountain View community. Our mission is to provide compassionate and comprehensive care. We offer exceptional service with extended hours to ensure Mountain View residents have immediate access to excellent care for non-life-threatening medical needs.
Mountain View Urgent Care offers services that may be compared to those performed in the “fast track” or low acuity section of a local Emergency Department - BUT with a considerable discount on price! Our on-site x-ray, ultrasound, and laboratory, set us apart from primary care offices which do not offer these services.
