Since 2012, Charles Clement has served as the president and CEO of Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) in Juneau. An involved health care industry professional, Charles Clement maintains affiliations with many similar organizations, including the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, which works to promote the health and well-being of the state’s Alaska Native and American Indian community.

Through its charitable arm, the Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation, the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium is currently working to raise funds for the construction of a new housing facility for patients of the Alaska Native Medical Center. When it opens in early 2017, the six-floor facility will provide 202 rooms and a variety of amenities for those who travel to Anchorage for health services at the medical center.

In addition to featuring communal kitchens and gathering areas, the new patient housing facility will offer a business center, direct access to the Alaska Native Medical Center, and special accommodations for expectant mothers and their families. The Healthy Alaska Natives Foundation recently raised $108,000 for the project at the 2016 Raven’s Ball, but it still needs additional support.
