Kotzebue is about 500 miles north of Anchorage. Although the Maniilaq Health Center has a very good hospital, it is a small facility which lacks specialty services such as surgery and high-risk obstetrics. Patients who need medical care that is not available in Kotzebue are sent out, usually to Anchorage, for additional medical services. Many of these folks can and do fly on Alaska Airlines, but seriously ill or injured patients are flown south by Medivac. This hangar houses the Medivac plane.
