Southcentral

With over half of Alaska’s population living in the state’s Southcentral region it stands to reason that it also has the most developed road system. Residents in Alaska’s largest city Anchorage have the Kenai Peninsula easily accessible for hiking, fishing, kayaking and more. With Anchorage flanked by spectacular mountains many residents enjoy the best of both worlds: a quality urban experience and unlimited outdoor adventure. On the eastern side of the Southcentral region you’ll find Valdez, tucked in the Prince William Sound and surrounded by towering Chugach Mountains. Valdez is known for its accessibility to world-class winter sports and in summer you’ll find a gateway to Mother Nature through trails, wildlife and bountiful waterfalls. Southcentral Alaska has the largest concentration of physician practice opportunities. Alaska Regional Hospital, Providence Hospital, Alaska Native Medical Center and Alaska Psychiatric Institute are a few of the region’s healthcare systems.
