Slide notes:The Indian Health Service consists of a federal system and health care organizations managed independently by American Indian tribes and Alaska Native corporations. Additional services are provided by contract with private providers. The federal system is divided into twelve physical areas of the United States; each area has a unique group of tribes that work with the system on a day-to-day basis. Services are provided through twenty-eight hospitals, sixty-three health centers, thirty-one health stations, and thirty-four urban projects. American Indian tribes and Alaska Native corporations administer seventeen additional hospitals, two hundred sixty-three health centers, ninety-two health stations, and one hundred sixty-six Alaska village clinics. Like most systems, the Indian Health Service offers primary and secondary care. Some areas have tertiary care capabilities or contract with private providers for these services. 29
