MCB Hawaii Community
E Komo Mai — welcome to Naval Health Clinic Hawaii (NHCH), where your health and readiness are our focus. NHCH is comprised of two large clinics: Makalapa at Pearl Harbor Naval Base and Kaneohe Bay at MCB Hawaii. Other smaller clinics are located at Camp H.M. Smith, Wahiawa and Barking Sands on the island of Kauai. Note: The headquarters for NHCH is not co-located with the clinics, but resides in Building 1750 at 480 Central Ave. adjacent to the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. Preventive Medicine, Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Health Services are provided at this site, which is also known as the Shipyard Clinic. The following paragraphs offer helpful information on our Welcoming Center, clinic locations, services and hours of operation. For additional information, visit www.med.navy.mil/sites/nhch.
Medical care at NHCH begins with the Welcoming Center, where active-duty members, family members and retired Prime beneficiaries begin a one-stop check-in process to enroll to NHCH for care. Trained staff assists with TRICARE enrollment, medical record updating, primary care manager (PCM) assignment and initial appointments for any needed medical care. Active-duty members also complete the Periodic Health Assessment, part of the Individual Medical Readiness process. TRICARE representatives and Health Benefits Advisors are available to answer TRICARE and enrollment questions. During the check-in process, information about several resources, including TRICARE Online (www.tricareonline.com allows you to make medical appointments), Exceptional Family Member Program and Advance Directives, will be provided.

• Makalapa Clinic: 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to noon Sunday. Telephone: 808-473-2444, ext. 501.

Please bring ID cards, Social Security numbers (for all enrolling), medical records, dental records (if active duty) and immunization records when you check in. If you have your medical record, we will request it from your last provider. You can still complete the check-in process. If you have never had a military health care system medical record, we will make one for you. For more information, please call the Welcoming Center at the site you wish to enroll.
