Have you heard the news? As of 12 February 2018, the USAF Hospital Langley launched a Pharmacist run Cough and Cold Clinic. It is for sick patients who cannot get an appointment with their provider right away and do not want to wait at the ER. Patients can check in at the Family Health front desk to be seen by a clinical pharmacist on a walk-in basis Monday through Friday from 0800 - 1000 and 1300 - 1500. Patients should tell the front desk staff they want to be seen in "The Pharmacist Cough and Cold Clinic." The pharmacist will evaluate the patient's symptoms and, if appropriate, prescribe medications. The Pharmacist Cough and Cold Clinic is available to all active duty and DOD beneficiaries 18 to 70 years of age who are enrolled to USAF Hospital Langley. Patients who are on flying status or the Personal Reliability Program (PRP), less than 18 years old, immunocompromised or have symptoms over 10 days cannot be seen at the Cough and Cold clinic.
All services at the 633d Medical Group, including Emergency and Inpatient Services, will be completely closed from Feb. 16-19, 2018. Starting at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018, Inpatient Services will prepare for closure and patients will start being transferred to other facilities. Starting at 2359 on Friday, Feb. 16, 2018, ER services will close and any patients in route will be diverted to other medical facilities. All services are expected to resume at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018. For medical emergencies during this time, all patients should call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room. For other health issues, you may call the Nurse Advice Line (NAL) at 1-800-874-2273 for medical guidance, or go to the nearest Urgent Care Center (UCC). For a listing of UCCs in the TRICARE network or locations of the nearest Emergency Room, you may contact Humana Military at 1-800-444-5445. Any UCC visits that occur during this timeframe will be covered by TRICARE for all 633 MDG enrolled beneficiaries including Active Duty.
