Very smooth process, with a lot of support. I didn’t have to wrangle details. Once I was here the support continued so I could focus on my practice.

I have really enjoyed working with the staff at MSRMC. Everyone has a genuine desire to help patients and each other. It's a wonderful place to work.

Samuel Inouye M.D.
The staff of MSRMC went the extra mile to make sure my transition into practice was as seamless as possible. They all contribute to make both the workplace and community a very positive environment. I look forward to working with them each and every day.

Dr. Michael Montano, Orthopedic Surgeon
Every start-up is unique, but they are all great at Mat-Su Regional. All the departments and office staff are helpful and look for ways to make the experience streamlined, professional, and pain-free. They were wonderful in the beginning and keep looking for ways to assist and improve the process. It would have been much tougher without their support.

Dr. Charles Haggerty, Orthopedic Surgeon

What draws people to Palmer Alaska?


Palmer is one small city in an area that we refer to as the Mat-Su Valley.  The Mat-Su valley or the Mat-Su Borough is roughly the size of the state of West Virginia, and we serve a population of 90,000 people. The people of the Mat-Su Valley live here for the lifestyle.  There are more outdoor recreational opportunities than I can state.  If you love the outdoors, fishing, hunting, back country skiing, mountain biking, hiking, snow machining, ATVing, gold panning, you name it, it can happen here.

Additionally it is still a community where neighbors talk to one another and look after each other’s kids.  It is a safe environment to raise children and the school system is very good with many options to meet any unique needs that your child may have.  I have two young boys who have just started school and my wife and I are very happy with their progress and they are happy too.
