Soldier Centered Medical Homes
The soldier-centered medical home (SCMH) is the Soldier’s version of the PCMH. In this integrated staffing model, the organic unit medical staff, augmented with behavioral health and physical therapy, provides care for their assigned Soldiers. SCMH is designed to improve and enhance both individual and unit medical readiness across the Army.
SCMHs are empanelled with active-duty Soldiers, and are located in close proximity to the Soldier’s primary working area, aligning expert clinical teams with individual Soldiers and their unit command. In this construct, the SCMH improves access to care, continuity between Soldiers and providers, recovery time, and communication with the command. Soldiers not aligned under an above listed SCMH will continue to receive care through their respective PCMH at Tripler Army Medical Center, Schofield Barracks Health Clinic or the Warrior Ohana Medical Home in Kapolei.
Current SCMHs include the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Brigade Combat Team and 25th Combat Aviation Brigade, all under the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii.
