Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center is one of the largest employers on the island. Brenda Zawacki is the human resources manager for the hospital. She says they hire four to seven employees per month from outside Kodiak. The hospital keeps four long term leases on places where they can house new employees for up to 30 days. Sometimes that’s not long enough. KMXT’s Jennifer Canfield spoke with Zawacki about the tight housing market that is not only making life difficult for newcomers, but for their local employers as well.
