How to Make an Appointment

 

Contact the appointment line at (785) 239-DOCS (3627). Follow the prompts to the OB/GYN Women's Health Clinic by selecting option #1 (schedule an appointment), then option #2 (OB/GYN). Use this option for questions about

appointments or if you need to confirm a new pregnancy or obtain test results.

 

Patients may call the OB/GYN clinic to request a laboratory pregnancy test. Please inform us of the first day of your last menstrual period if it is

known.

 

For routine gynecologic, well woman, and contraceptive needs, call the OB/GYN Women's Health Clinic to meet with a Well Woman provider. Call (785) 239-3627, option #1 then option #2.

 

If you have a nurse question, leave a message with the front desk or appointment line and include your full name, sponsor's last 4, contact number, and a brief reason for the call. A registered nurse will return your call and address your questions.

 

How to See a Network Provider

 

If a patient requires care from a network provider, the OB/GYN clinic will submit a request to the TRICARE support contractor for processing. Within 7 - 10 business days an authorization letter will be sent to the patient with instructions on how to schedule an appointment.

 

To avoid delays, patients should keep their mailing address current in DEERS. Patients can contact the clinic after 14 business days if no authorization letter has been received.

 

How Pregnant Patients Can Register with OB Clinic

 

A pregnant patient transferring from another facility can register with the IACH OB/GYN clinic. Patients should bring OB records on current pregnancy to the registration appointment.

 

Other patients must first obtain confirmation of pregnancy via hospital lab. Upon receipt of pregnancy test results, a patient can schedule a registration appointment.

 

To seek a pregnancy test, a patient can contact her PCM for assistance.

 

Patient Education Classes

 

  • Breastfeeding Class
  • Group Prenatal Care
  • Childbirth Education Class

 

A robust team of caring providers and nurses have built a curriculum of classes to maximize the health outcomes of parents and newborns. All classes are held on the 3rd Floor in Room 3G032.

IACH Hosts CenteringPregnancy

 

CenteringPregnancy is a new option for prenatal care offered at Irwin Army Community Hospital. Women with similar due dates participate in 10 group sessions. Each group session includes a physical assessment, private time with the health care provider and group time for discussion of pregnancy issues.

 

CenteringPregnancy is a way for expectant moms to be more actively involved in their own care and to share learning and experiences with other pregnant women.

 

See the CenteringPregancy page for more information about this new program at IACH.
