Overview

The Inspiration – How Healthcare Should Be

Community Based Medical Homes are Army-run, primary care clinics located off-post in the communities where Army Families live. But Community Based Medical Homes offer more than convenient location.

Community Based Medical Homes are inspired from the ground up by your ideas and suggestions about how healthcare should be. Those ideas and suggestions are embodied in the concept of the Patient Centered Medical Home, a new model of healthcare being adopted across Military Healthcare and by leading civilian healthcare systems.

The Patient Centered Medical Home is both revolutionary and old-fashioned. Each patient partners with a team of healthcare providers physicians, nurses, behavioral health professionals, pharmacists, and others to develop a comprehensive, personal healthcare plan. That healthcare team works with each patient over time to take care of health issues as they arise, ensure delivery of prevention screening and services, manage chronic conditions, and promote a spirit of health, wellness and trust.

At its heart, the Army Community Based Medical Home is healthcare the way it should be easy to access, patient-centered, team based, and quality focused.

Welcome to the Fort Hood area Medical Homes

We are part of Army Family Healthcare, the way healthcare should be. Your clinic is Army-run even though it is not on Fort Hood. It is located in the community where you live so that you will have more convenient access to healthcare when you need it.

Here you will be partnered with a primary care clinician and nurses who take responsibility for your health and coordinate care with an extended team of behavioral health professionals, pharmacists, subspecialists and others.

Your core team works with you over time to take care of new health concerns as they arise, ensure delivery of preventive screening and services, manage chronic health problems, and promote a spirit of health and wellness. This relationship between you and your health care team is the heart of the Medical Home.

We encourage you to take an active role in your healthcare by asking questions, participating in the decisions that affect you and your family's health. So that your team is always aware of your health problems, please let them know when you receive care outside the Medical Home. To that end, we will go the extra mile to ensure that when you need care, you get care from your own healthcare team - the doctor and nurses who know you and your family.

Your team nurse plays a greater role than you might be used to. Your nurse will spend more time listening to your concerns, help you communicate those concerns to your doctor, and then make sure that you understand the care plan and that all of your questions are answered.
