Ambler lies 45 miles north of the Arctic Circle, on the north bank of the Kobuk River near the confluence of the Ambler and the Kobuk Rivers. It is 138 miles northeast of Kotzebue, 30 miles northwest of Kobuk and 30 miles downriver from Shungnak.
Ambler's major means of transportation are by barge, plane, small boat and snowmachine. There are no roads linking the City to other parts of the state.
The Community Health Aide/Practitioner program (CHAP) operates remote village clinics. Most clinics have a full time staff of two to four Health Aides who service about one-half of Maniilaq's total patient contacts. All clinics are directly connected to the Maniilaq Health Center in Kotzebue, providing access to all regional medical records and medical libraries as well as visual and audio teleconferencing capability to consult doctors. Using a computer telemedicine unit, village clinics can send electronic pictures to the Maniilaq Health Center, where physicians view the images, making long-distance diagnosis easier and more accurate.
Several times a year specialized doctors, dentists, and eye doctors make regularly scheduled visits to the clinics to provide specialized care not usually offered in the area. Additionally, Maniilaq Association operates its own Medivac plane, providing reliable and timely health care to the villages.
