TRIPLER ARMY MEDICAL CENTER


Chapter 16: Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam

Last Updated :

General Information

The William R. Schick Clinic, which was named in memory of 1st Lt. (Dr.) William R. Schick, the first Army Air Corps physician killed in action during World War II, was established in 1941. The clinic, which has the distinction of being the most historic military treatment facility in the Air Force’s inventory, cared for hundreds of wounded during and following the Japanese air attack on
Dec. 7, 1941. Since then, quality healthcare has remained at the forefront as major modifications have been made to the services provided and the facility itself.

Today the clinic houses the 15th Medical Group, which includes the 15th Aerospace Medicine Squadron, the 15th Medical Support Squadron and 15th Medical Operations Squadron. The clinic provides well-rounded outpatient primary care and limited specialty care services to the Airmen assigned to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, their families and a small retirement population.
