MacDill Military Clinic Will No Longer Serve Retirees, Families

2/24/2020

Pentagon officials released a list of military treatment facilities and clinics that will no longer provide care to military retirees and active-duty families as part of a shift in focus to supporting active-duty readiness.  MacDill affected.

   "The military health system is in the midst of implementing several significant reforms aimed at building a more integrated and effective system of readiness and health," said Tom McCaffery, assistant secretary of defense for health affairs. "We reviewed all facilities through the lens of their contributions to military readiness -- that includes MTFs [being] operated to ensure service members are medically ready to train and deploy. It also means MTFs are effectively utilized as platforms that enable our military medical personnel to acquire and maintain the clinical skills and experience that prepares them for deployment in support of combat operations around the world."

· Facilities closing to non-active duty patients

includes: MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, outpatient clinic  (pharmacy for all will be maintained)

· Facilities that will close completely to all users

includes:  MacDill Air Force Base's Sabal Park community clinic in Brandon, Florida.
