Norton Sound Regional Hospital (NSRH) is a critical access, board-directed community hospital serving the Norton Sound Region of Alaska.

Norton Sound Health Corporation (NSHC) is the governing body of NSRH. It is a tribally owned and operated, independent, not-for profit health care organization, founded in 1970 to meet the health care needs of the Inupiat, Siberian Yup’ik and Yu’pik people of the Bering Strait region, a 44,000 square-mile section of northwestern Alaska. It includes 15 remote villages, each with their own clinic staffed primarily by community health aids.
