Dr. Sahlstrom has served on a variety of committees at the hospital including Member of the Board of Trustees, hospital Chief of Staff, Chairman of the Medical Executive Committee, Chairman of Peer Review, and Chairman of Maternal Child Health.

Craig Brumagin, PA-C
Craig joined us in 2019 and is a certified Physician Assistant. Craig Brumagin moved to Alaska as a young adult seeking adventure. He returned to school to obtain his Physician Assistant degree at Gannon University in Erie, PA.

Craig enjoys hiking, back country snowboarding, cross country skiing, camping, hunting, fishing and all things outdoors. Craig believes that purposeful provider-patient relationships and whole-family care is the foundation for healthy individuals and families. Heritage Family Medicine was a natural fit for Craig.
