The president and chairman of Alaska’s largest tribal health organization has resigned his position, an official said.

Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium President and CEO Andy Teuber resigned Tuesday, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Teuber did not immediately respond to a phone call seeking comment Tuesday.

Spokeswoman Shirley Young did not say why Teuber resigned or provide his letter of resignation.

The organization’s board voted to name CEO Garvin Federenko as acting president and Bernice Kaigelak of the Arctic Slope Native Association as board chair, Young said in an e-mail.

Teuber served as head of the statewide tribal health organization since 2008. His profile page on the organization’s website was removed Tuesday.

Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium operates the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage. The organization’s website said it is the largest tribal health organization in the U.S. and Alaska’s second-largest health employer with 3,000 employees.

Teuber also resigned effective immediately from the University of Alaska Board of Regents Tuesday, said Roberta Graham, associate vice president of public affairs for the university.

Graham could not provide additional details about Teuber’s resignation.

Teuber is also the president and CEO of the Kodiak Area Native Association.
