Our residents’ sense of safety impacts their health and well-being by influencing their level of engagement in physical and social activities. When residents feel safe, they are decreasing their risk of isolation, obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Most of us are concerned about our health these days – whether it’s an emphasis on hitting the gym a bit more, getting in touch with your spiritual side through yoga, or taking some extra time to focus on mental well-being. Thankfully, Soldotna is the sort of town that makes that pursuit of betterment easy, even while you’re on vacation or here on business.
Take a break and get a massage at your destination spa, do some yoga in the middle of a river park, or schedule time to take in the Kenai National Wildlife on a hike…whatever you have time for, there’s an opportunity to be a better person before you head home.
Soldotna is fortunate to have the finest medical professionals and the latest health care technology. Many physicians, dentists, chiropractors and other health professionals offer extensive services. From simple dental exams, family vaccinations and checkups to the most sophisticated medical technology available, highly skilled health care professionals are always available.
Using the latest rehabilitative technology and techniques, Central Peninsula Hospital and Peninsula Community Health Services help individuals achieve their greatest level of function as quickly as possible, so they may return to work, to play and to living a full life.
In addition to these two great facilities, Soldotna is served by many other private practice medical providers.
