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.

Progress to date:

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.

Thank You

Mountain View Urgent Care was started by Dr. Van Ravenswaay, a life-long Alaskan, prior independent commercial fisherman who went to UAA with the idea of serving Alaska’s rural communities wth a keen interest in telemedicine. While in medical school, the Mountain View community sparked his interest when the current site of Mountain View Urgent Care was advertised as a medical space for lease. During his long road of medical education including completing post-graduate training at Ventura Family Medicine Residency, he kept his interest in serving the Mountain View community. When he learned that the local clinic discontinued operations in Mountain View, he started Mountain View Urgent Care to fill the need for accessible medical care.

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.

Up-front pricing means no additional costs after the visit. We have structured our pricing to serve everyone, especially families with high deductible insurance plans. We believe that HIGH PRICES, not OVERUSE of health care, is the main reason why American health care is so expensive.

We are here in Mountain View, “Serving us” - the people of Alaska.

Help us get the word out.
