The 49th Medical Group at Holloman Air Force Base aims to provide, or arrange for "Trusted Care" for approximately 14,500 DoD beneficiaries living in southern rural New Mexico.
The active duty and civilian medical professionals assigned to the 49th Medical Group follow the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) concept, where medical care is provided by a Primary Care Manager alongside a dedicated team of support staff who manage and monitor patient-centered, comprehensive health care provided in or out of the clinic.
Our medical group is comprised of three squadrons who work in unison to provide superior care to our enrolled beneficiaries:
