Tripler History

The origins of Tripler Army Medical Center date back to 1907 when several wooden structures at Fort Shafter were used as a hospital. The facility was named in 1920 after Brigadier General Charles Stuart Tripler, in honor of his contributions to Army medicine during the Civil War. At the start of World War II, the hospital at Fort Shafter had 450 beds. Plans for a new Tripler hospital atop Moanalua ridge were drawn in 1942 and construction was completed in 1948. The architecturally distinctive coral pink structure, nestled on the southern slopes of Oahu’s Koolau range, was dedicated onSept. 10, 1948, and has become a familiar landmark on the island of Oahu.

Chapter 7: PRMC Medical Homes

Patient Centered Medical Homes

PRMC is the first region in MEDCOM to achieve 100% Army Medical Home implementation and demonstrates Army Medicine’s commitment to providing our Soldiers, their families and our beneficiaries with the best primary care available. Army Medicine is in the process of transitioning from a Healthcare System to a System of Health to better serve our patients and beneficiaries. The central driver to achieving a System of Health is the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). PCMH is a proven model of longitudinal healthcare delivery; its core principles have been endorsed by numerous national medical organizations including the American Medical Association (AMA), American College of Physicians (ACP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Academy of Nursing (AAN), American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and Medical Group Management Association (MGMA). A growing body of data in the literature indicates that a system of health built around individual PCMHs results in improved access and continuity of care, higher levels of staff and patient satisfaction, better quality of care (as measured by traditional outcome measures), lower emergency department utilization, lower healthcare costs, and improved Soldier and family readiness. Placing the patient at the center of his/her care and focusing on prevention and education facilitates the transition towards a System of Health.

U.S. Army Health Clinic-Schofield Barracks

The U.S. Army Health Clinic at Schofield Barracks (USAHC-SB) provides a wide variety of outpatient services and quality healthcare to the majority of the 36,000 Soldiers and family members assigned to the 25th Infantry Division, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, other commands, as well as some military retirees. The Schofield Barracks Health Clinic provides more than 50 percent of all Army primary healthcare in Hawaii. USAHC-SB is also responsible for deployment cycle medicine for most Soldiers on Oahu and operates the largest Soldier Readiness Processing (SRP) site in the Pacific. USAHC-SB consists of 23 separate building which are historical structures, and have all 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, healthcare services have expanded dramatically to accommodate the expanded mission requirements of the Department of Defense. USAHC-SB is the largest outpatient clinic in the U.S. Army. It is located northwest of the Post Exchange on Waianae Avenue at McCornack Road. The USAHC-SB, a Tricare Prime site, provides healthcare to Soldiers, their families, military retirees and eligible family members assigned to Primary Care Managers (PCMs) at the Clinic. For the latest information about changes to services, hours of operation and events and initiatives, follow USAHC-SB on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SchofieldBarracksHC.
