Senior Circle

We feel very lucky to share a roof with Mat-Su Regional Medical Center and proud to work next to the hospital staff dedicated to ensuring that each and every person that walks through the doors finds the healing they need. When the national Senior Circle Association was phased out at the end of last year, Mat-Su Regional knew they’d need to fill the void that would be created.

Mat-Su Regional hosts a free, local Senior Circle program for individuals over age 50 who are interested in learning about health and wellness, meeting others and pursuing an active lifestyle.
