The Chris Kyle Patriots Hospital was dedicated on July 28, 2015, in Anchorage, Alaska. Named in honor of the late Chris Kyle, Chief Petty Officer (SEAL) U.S. Navy (1974-2013), also known as the “American Sniper,” the facility has an intensive inpatient treatment program for United States military service members and veterans who can benefit from mental health care services.

The Chris Kyle Patriots Hospital supports service members and veterans who have experienced trauma or may need detoxification or rehabilitation for substance use. The specialized holistic treatment includes intensive multidisciplinary care that focuses on enhancing the mind, strengthening the body and empowering the spirit.

North Star Behavioral Health is one of the largest behavioral health systems in Alaska. According to Andrew Mayo, PhD, CEO and Managing Director of the hospital, “we believe the work we do is the most important. Our team approach reinforces our staff’s commitment to our work – which makes a difference for the future of our communities and the people we serve.”
