Roald Helgesen will assume the chief executive officer position of the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) in mid-December, reported the Anchorage Daily News.

A member of the Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes, Helgesen grew up in Sitka. He will leave his four-year post as president and chief executive of Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC), the largest private employer in Southeast Alaska with about 1,000 employees and an annual budget of nearly $115 million, for the statewide operation.

Created in 1997, ANTHC, which employs about 2,000 people, provides service to Alaska Natives across the state, operating under a half-billion dollar annual budget.

The SEARHC will search for Helgesen’s replacement nationwide to lead the non-profit tribal health consortium, which provides medical, dental, behavioral health, substance abuse treatment and wellness services to Tlingít, Haida, Tsimshian and other Native people in Southeast Alaska, according to a SEARHC press release. Established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act, SEARHC is one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the country.
