North Star Hospital

AIDEA has worked in partnership with many organizations to further the availability of quality healthcare in Alaska. In 2001, AIDEA participated in a loan from Northrim Bank to DeBarr Road Properties and Bragaw Street Properties LLC's to bring ownership of two of Alaska's top healthcare facilities under Alaskan ownership, North Star Hospital and Residential Treatment Center.

North Star plans to expand their current facilities to provide a greater percentage of in-state residential treatment needs. Currently there are a limited number of residential treatment facilities in Alaska for young mental-health patients and hundreds of residents must leave the state each year to receive treatment in the Lower 48 states.
