Who We Are

Our Mission Statement


The Mission of Alaska Trauma & Acute Care Surgery is to provide outstanding trauma and acute care surgical services for the people of Alaska.

Our Core Values:


We believe that the best results, surgically, professionally, and personally, are achieved working in effective, respectful and mutually supportive teams.



We believe that we are best able to fulfill our mission through the effective utilization of our chief resources – time and talent. We believe that only through outstanding stewardship of our resources, particularly working with PAMC to husband surgeons time utilization, can we achieve our mission. 



We believe that we are all part of ever larger communities, and that we are called to serve within those communities to the best of our abilities. Two of our partners are Anchorage Natives. We all take very seriously our roles as community leaders in the Providence, Anchorage, and Alaska communities.


We all are driven by a strong desire to excel at whatever we do.


The partners of ATACS all share a central core value of integrity and believe that our mission is best achieved through transparency and honesty in setting forth and achieving realistic goals and objectives, working within a relationship of trust with our partners and associates.
