Our Goal

The goal of the Tribal Health Department is to viewed by all tribal members as their medical home, their first choice for primary and preventive health care, and their navigator for all healthcare needs.

The Tribal Health Department manages tribal funds, federal funds, health insurance collections, and grants to provide health care services to tribal members and health center beneficiaries. These funds are deposited into one of three accounts, which helps ensure tribal funds are used for enrolled tribal members only. Federal and grant funds are used for enrolled tribal members and all other Native American and Alaska Native beneficiaries who receive health related services.
