“The facilities bring all of the Soldier Readiness Center medical
services into one central location, which is convenient for the
Soldiers,” Warren said. “The facilities also were built to handle modern
medical needs and equipment and provide for privacy.”
An updated area for the patient administration section allows for
electronic handling of patient medical records, he said. Equipment was
moved from the old facilities and is being replaced/upgraded, as
Services provided in the new buildings include immunizations, Automated
Neuropsychological Assessment Metrics, medical review and audiology in
the future. Dentistry and personnel record services will continue to be
provided in buildings 2668 and 2643, respectively.
Because the new buildings are dedicated solely to Medical Readiness
Review, Soldiers can concentrate on what they need to do to ensure their
medical records are completed properly, Warren said. The floor layout
also is user friendly, and staff is available to help guide Soldiers
through the facilities, he said.
Soldiers also will find the facilities offer comfortable waiting areas
where they can relax and watch video on flex, flat-screen televisions.
Warren said this helps reduce the stress often involved in the process.
“We’ve been working all the bugs out of operating in the new buildings
and getting ready for the expected surge of mobilizing/demobilizing
troops in the upcoming months,” Warren said. “It will be a great thing
for the Soldiers.”
Fort McCoy permanent-party personnel and their Family members will
continue to have their medical needs met through the TRICARE program
using off-post medical providers.
