New clinic coming to Killeen
Healthcare near where patients live and work
FORT HOOD, Texas –Family members of active duty Soldiers stationed at Fort Hood will soon have more convenient access to healthcare with the Sept. 8 opening and ribbon cutting for the Killeen Medical Home Clinic, a community-based primary care clinic; the ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. and is open to the public.
The Killeen Medical Home is located at 3404 Kaydence Court just off Elms Road near Stan Schlueter Loop.
This clinic is the last clinic among three “medical home” clinics to open in local Fort Hood communities. The clinic is also one among 19 medical home clinics the Army is opening near Army installations across the U.S. and Hawaii.
The “medical home” concept of care enhances the patient experience: Patients partner with a team of healthcare providers to develop a comprehensive, personal healthcare plan.
Part of the plan includes prevention screening and services and management of chronic conditions.
The clinic is in leased space and staffed with civilian employees. Patients will still have the option of using Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center for emergency and specialized care.
Eligible patients have already received a letter in the mail explaining how to request a change in enrollment to the Killeen Medical Home clinic.
