Custer Hill Health Clinic
The Medical Home Team concept is one that provides all outpatient needs under one umbrella. Each team has several providers, such as a family practice provider, physician assistant, nurse practitioner and pediatrician, and the team is assigned to particular brigades and elements. The same providers see the same Family members within the same unit to increase continuity of care and improve overall satisfaction with health care services.

Soldiers and their families in 2nd BDE and 1st STB are now receiving their care at the Custer Hill Health Clinic, located at 7672 Estes Road on Custer Hill.

Information on the Custer Hill Health Clinic

Look for a new name for the clinic in the near future! As we make the move to caring for families, "Troop Medical Clinic" just doesn't quite fit anymore! We will be dedicating the clinic with a different name soon, more to come!
