General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital has an alternate option for some patients to receive urgent care without visiting the Emergency Room.
According to GLWACH Executive Officer Holly Bradford, the Acute Minor Illness Clinic is intended for enrolled beneficiaries who seek primary care with their assigned primary care manager at GLWACH.
“Anyone in TRICARE Prime enrolled to GLWACH and those 65 years and older TRICARE for Life beneficiaries who are enrolled here with a PCM,” she said.
Formerly referred to as the Urgent Care Clinic that opened earlier this year, the AMIC is located directly across from the ER and is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, including holidays. Patients may be seen there for cough and cold symptoms, nausea and vomiting, cuts and lacerations, rashes and allergy symptoms, fractures and sprains, sports physicals, skin infections, headaches, nose bleeds, earaches or pain, sore throats, and urinary symptoms.
