Chapter 8: Schofield Barracks

Last Updated :

U.S. Army Health Clinic-Schofield Barracks

General Information

The U.S. Army Health Clinic at Schofield Barracks provides a wide variety of services and quality healthcare to the majority of the 36,000 Soldiers and their families assigned to the 25th Infantry Division, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, other commands, as well as some local military retirees. The Schofield Barracks health clinics provide more than 50 percent of all Army primary health care in Hawaii. USAHC-SB is also responsible for deployment cycle medicine for most Soldiers on Oahu and runs the largest Soldier Readiness Processing (SRP) site in the Pacific.

USAHC-SB is a historical structure which has been extensively modernized. It was constructed in the early 1920s as a hospital. In 1965, its hospital services were transferred to Tripler Army Medical Center, and USAHC-SB became exclusively an outpatient facility. Since that time and especially since Sept. 11, 2001, health care services have expanded dramatically to accommodate the enlarged mission requirements of the Department of Defense and the U.S. Army.

The Schofield Barracks Health Clinic is now one of the largest outpatient clinics in the U.S. Army. It is located northwest of the post exchange on Waianae Avenue at McCornack Road. The USAHC-SB is a TRICARE Prime site providing health care to Soldiers, their families, military retirees and eligible family members assigned to Primary Care Managers (PCMs) at the Clinic.

2. Urgent: Patients with stable but serious conditions, with risk of deterioration, are seen ahead of all other patients but the Emergent patients.

3. Non-Urgent: Patients with stable, non-life-threatening conditions, but could require more medical tests, and/or referral to another doctor or facility.

4. Routine: Patients with chronic medical conditions, or acute conditions in which waiting to be seen has no apparent risk to the patient.

5. Non-Urgent and Routine patients: May be placed in our Fast Track, and seen by a mid-level provider (a Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioner). If a large number of patients walk in to the Acute Care Clinic at the same time, such patients may be given a time later in the day that they can be seen.
