Nuka System of Care
Southcentral Foundation Nuka System of Care is a name given to the whole health care system created, managed and owned by Alaska Native people to achieve physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness.
Nuka is an Alaska Native word used for strong, giant structures and living things. The relationship-based Nuka System of Care is comprised of organizational strategies and processes; medical, behavioral, dental and traditional practices; and supporting infrastructure that work together – in relationship – to support wellness. By putting relationships at the forefront of what we do and how we do it, the Nuka System will continue to develop and improve for future generations.
Nuka is a word used in many different cultures; some common meanings include honor, strength, big living things, dignity, love, generosity, and support.
Wasilla is the home of the world renowned Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race and the Tesoro Iron-Dog 2000, the world’s longest snowmobile race. Fishing, swimming, boating, hiking, and biking are popular activities during summer’s long daylight hours, and mountains, lakes, streams, wetlands, tundra, and boreal forests are within easy reach.
A progressive community in a spectacular natural setting - Wasilla offers the best of Alaska. A thriving crossroads with a booming economy, this rapidly growing city is the heart of a diverse and dynamic region. Wasilla is the commercial and retail center for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough in South-central Alaska.
Wasilla sits between two river valleys carved by prehistoric glaciers. The city is sheltered from the extreme weather by the Talkeetna Mountains and nestled between two beautiful lakes—Wasilla and Lucille. The unique locale appeals to those who seek an Alaskan lifestyle while raising a family, taking advantage of economic prospects, or retiring in comfort. Located 12 miles north of Knik Arm on Cook Inlet, Wasilla is in Alaska’s fastest growing area, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough.
The water is clean and abundant, the air is fresh, and the people are friendly. Wasilla embodies the small-town values of family, community, and caring for neighbors. Residents have easy access to major cities, other small towns, suburban areas, farmlands, and isolated cabins. Proximity to Anchorage and the magnificent coastal areas of the South-central region provides residents with additional economic, educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities.
