What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Before we started Mountain View Urgent Care, there was no outpatient health clinic in the low-income neighborhood of Mountain View, a diverse population of about 8,000 people. Alaska Regional Hospital Emergency room reported roughly 5,000 ER visits from Mountain View neighborhood residents in 2015 and reported that about half of those were for health concerns a primary care doctor could treat. Behavioral Health needs are rising in Mountain View. Anxiety and depression have seen the biggest rise in incidence. When we started Mountain View Health Services, there were no outpatient behavioral health clinics in the neighborhood.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mountain View Urgent Care

MVUC offers excellent, walk-in care for the whole family. With extended hours, our patients can be seen at their convenience. Common reasons to be seen include injuries, cough, and fever but we also offer physicals, one-stop STD testing and treatment, Offering Vivitrol injections for those in recovery from opioid and alcohol dependency, Nexplanon implantable birth control, and Depot-Provera injectable birth control.

We offer sliding scale fees for our patients. Financial hardship payment plans are also available. We believe that Alaskans should see their doctor more often and not less. For this reason, we want to do our part to make health care more affordable.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To meet the health care needs of the community of Mountain View.

To create a permanent comprehensive and innovative community health center that will, within 5 years, offer robust, full-service outpatient health care services including: primary care, urgent care, immediate-access behavioral health services and counseling, psychiatry, diabetes specialty care, general cardiology services, and orthopedic clinic.

We are currently building capacity to expand services in primary care and behavioral health. We are developing a combination model of care offering both immediate and scheduled care through a combination primary care/urgent care clinic with integrated behavioral health clinicians.

We have a nicely built-out clinic space with room for expansion.

We have increased patient visits by over 200% in the last 3 years.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
