MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. -- The 5th Medical Group hosted an open house for medical providers from the local community at Minot Air Force Base N.D., August 3, 2018.

One of the providers, Dr. Blerim Dibra, is the clinical director of Premier Physical Therapy of North Dakota in Minot, has worked with patients from the Base.

“We have established a symbiotic relationship with the PCM providers on base as well as referral management to facilitate a fast response for delivery and care for all the patients that are referred downtown,” said Dibra.

Dibra said that the open house is an annual event that gives providers time to connect with base personnel to become more informed on, and provide a clear channel of communication with the base.

Col. Julie Ostrand, 5th MDG commander, said it is important to have a good relationship with providers in the local area because the Minot medical community supplements and improves the installation’s ability to treat patients

“I think it’s important for our providers to see what our mission is here and how we both take care of and diagnose patients,” said Ostrand.

Along with the importance of providers seeing our mission Ostrand said that with the personal reliability assurance program (PRAP) Airmen are ready to do their job.

“With them coming out here, seeing what we do and talking to them, they can understand why we ask so many questions about the patient,” said Ostrand. “That way we can build a stronger relationship and thank them for their support.
