Base Ketchikan Health Services Clinic

Ketchikan, AK 99901

Hours: Weekdays 0730-1600 

Base Ketchikan Health Services Clinic is comprised of a Family Practice Physician, Dentist, part-time Dental Hygienist, full-time Dental Assistant & 6 Health Services Technicians.  We provide primary medical and dental care to active duty Coast Guard and DoD personnel. 

Active Duty Dependents over the age of 8 & Retired Beneficiaries can also access these services on a space available basis.  What this means is that we can provide care for the beneficiary as the nature of the situation dictates & appointment availability exists.  Be advised that this method is generally not used for routine primary care, as civilian network providers are accessible in the area and fulfill this role.  For more information, please contact the clinic.


DO NOT CHANGE your TRICARE enrollment status until you've arrived at your PCS Unit.  Our region falls under the "open enrollment" clause; your enrollment into the West region will be effective the day you make the change either online or by phone.

If you are relocating from the TRICARE North or South region or just changing your physician, you can update your enrollment using the Beneficiary Web Enrollment tool.  (CAC required) 

Primary Care Manager

Our region does not designate network-participating physicians as PCMs. Peace Health Medical Group currently fulfills this role & offers services in Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, all of which are accepting new patients.  Please visit their website for details.
