7 MDG Vision: Trusted and Ready Health Care!
7 MDG Mission: Optimize the Human Weapon System
The 7 MDG is comprised of three squadrons:
The 7th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron utilizes dedicated primary care manager teams to deliver proactive medical services to treat active duty Airmen including more than 600 aviators, and to process the administrative medical requirements necessary to maintain ready Airmen. Organized into eight flights, OMRS further supports population-based preventive medicine through services such as dental, public health, optometry, and health promotions, and ensures compliance with occupational and environmental health standards while supporting two flying wings for dominant air power and combat support…anytime, and anywhere.
The 7th Health Care Operations Squadron provides comprehensive primary care and limited referral and space-available subspecialty care to TRICARE-enrolled patients at the medical group. The squadron is comprised of two flights: Physical/Occupational Therapy and Primary Care that focuses on caring for the dependents of our Airmen. Other available services include: Allergy, Behavioral Health, Family Advocacy, Immunization, Pediatrics, Physical Therapy, and Substance Abuse Counseling. Women’s Health supports both OMRS and HCOS.
The 7th Medical Support Squadron consists of seven flights providing Resource Management, TRICARE Operations and Patient Administration, Information Management, Pharmacy, Diagnostic and Therapeutic, and Logistics support. The 7 MDSS supports healthcare delivery by managing a group budget of $13 million as of September 2019 and manpower programs for more than 300 staff members. The managed care program supports a beneficiary population of 20,000. The squadron also has responsibility for the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy partnership, which provides pharmacy students with advanced pharmacy practices.
