Your Health

The medical clinic operates three primary care management teams staffed by board-certified family practice physicians, flight surgeons and physician assistants. Additional clinics include pediatrics, optometry, mental health, dental, immunizations, laboratory, radiology, physical therapy and pharmacy. The group’s Health and Wellness Center provides preventive health education and testing. Bassett Army Community Hospital, 23 miles north of Eielson on Fort Wainwright, is Eielson’s referral source for specialty and inpatient care. The TRICARE office arranges referral care with civilian offices in Fairbanks and Anchorage, as well as military medical care at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska; Travis AFB, Calif.; and Madigan Army Medical Center at Joint Base Lewis- McChord, Wash. At the dental clinic, all active-duty military members may receive the full spectrum of general dentistry care, including endodontics, oral surgery, periodontics and prosthetics. The dental staff provides educational services to base schools and assists other organizations with dental disease prevention programs.
