IT'S NOT JUST US 

Post-Covid, There's A Doctor Problem In Alaska 

Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna, from their website. 

The Copper Valley isn't the only place that doesn't have doctors. Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna, one of the state's larger and more sophisticated hospitals (advertised on TV as being a "State Of The Art" hospital with "State Of The Heart" care)  is losing its core. 

It's losing four of its doctors. 

An August 4th, 2023 story on Alaska Public Media by journalist Riley Board describes the abrupt severing of Central Peninsula's staff. The story tells how Dr. Alexa Rodin, a primary care physician who came at the start of Covid, will be going to Montana with her husband, who is also a doctor. They couldn't find adequate care for their young daughter, and had to work opposite schedules and never saw each other, the story said. 

Another local physician, Dr. John Bramante, has been muscling through, the story said. But he's apparently getting worn down.

Dr. Libby Cummings and her fiance, both of whom worked at Central Peninsula Hospital is going to Maine. 

Alaska has a large community of older people living in isolated locations under difficult conditions. The loss of doctors in rural areas has become more noticeable post-Covid, including in the Copper River Valley.
