An alumnus of the University of Alaska with a master of public administration, Charles Clement also attended the Executive Leadership Program at Harvard Business School. He applies his training and executive experience as president and CEO of SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC). Over the years, Charles Clement has also served on numerous boards, including that of the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, which recently announced another milestone for the Alaska Native Medical Center.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Verification Review Committee (VRC), part of its Committee on Trauma (COT), has designated the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center. As part of the verification process, the VRC sent reviewers to ANMC to assess the center according to criteria based on the Resources for Optimal Care of the Injured Patient manual. Following the assessment, the team of reviewers granted ANMC Level II verification for one year.

ANMC treats 100 to 125 pediatric trauma patients each year, in addition to providing specialty burn care for pediatric patients. The new verification reflects ANMC’s commitment to providing comprehensive care to improve outcomes for local pediatric patients who suffer major injuries.
