Alaska House

Guest Services

Alaska House is guest housing for Alaska Regional Hospital patients and their families residing outside of the Anchorage area (beyond Indian to the south & Eklutna to the east). The patient(s) must be in treatment at Alaska Regional. However, Alaska House is not a medical unit and guests must be entirely able to care for themselves.

Room Requests

For Alaska House information please call 264-1745 (Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.). To request a room, please call 264-1263. Potential guests should leave their name and contact information, and are encouraged to call 24-hours prior to arrival date to confirm availability. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis – we are unable to take reservations. Both registration and discharge for Alaska House rooms occur in the Emergency Department’s Admitting area (second floor).

Room rates are $66 per night, credit card payment is preferred. If you know your length of stay, full payment is expected at the time of check-in. If you are unsure of your length of stay, you must check-in with ER Admitting every few day to keep your payments up to date. Medicaid pre-authorized travel vouchers accepted, as is valid written authorization for workers compensation.

If requested, a contact list of area hotels/motels is available in the event of no vacancies at Alaska House (facilities have loosely committed to give ARH patients a discounted rate, but have not been consistent in providing a price break during peak tourist season ). UAA Housing is also offered during summer months and student dorms may be available at reasonable cost during summer break.

Amenities

Single rooms and a limited number of double rooms are available. Each converted hospital room includes either one or two hospital beds, plus a TV and private bath with shower. A rollaway bed can be requested for single rooms to accommodate a second guest.

Rooms are thoroughly cleaned before guests register and after discharge. Maid service is not available and guests provide their own housekeeping. Clean linens are always available in the kitchen area. Complementary washer and dryer are located on same floor.

The common kitchen area includes a refrigerator, microwave, ice machine, and complementary coffee. A common sitting area features TV, VCR & DVD player, internet-accessible computer station, puzzles, books, movies and games. Also, free Wi-Fi access is offered at Alaska Regional Hospital.  

Discharge

Check-out and finalize your Alaska House bill through the Emergency Department’s Admitting area (second floor). Please return all room keys when discharging. Non-compliance may result in extra charges.
