In an emergency dial 911
Madigan’s Emergency Room (ER) is available for medical and traumatic emergencies at all times. The ER is accessible through an entrance on Gardner Loop. Specially trained nurses evaluate each patient on arrival to determine those who require the most urgent attention. The degree of urgency, not arrival time, establishes who will be seen first.
Waiting times range from less than 30 minutes to five hours or more, and typically increase throughout the day. Evaluation takes 15 to 30 minutes; or up to several hours if laboratory tests, X-rays or other special studies are required. Weekends and holidays are especially busy because most other hospital services and outlying clinics are closed.
If you have an urgent medical need that does not require emergency care, please call the TRICARE Regional Appointment Center at (800) 404-4506 before coming into the Emergency Room. If you are unable to get a same day appointment for your urgent medical need, you will be referred to an Urgent Care Clinic in one of the communities surrounding Joint Base Lewis-McChord for immediate attention.
Pharmacy Services Madigan has several pharmacies available on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. These pharmacies are located in Madigan Army Medical Center, on JBLM Lewis Main, JBLM Lewis North and McChord Field. At all locations, when picking up prescriptions you must have a military ID card for all patients 10 years old or older. A photocopy of the patient’s ID card may be used to pick up prescriptions.

While the hospital continues to evolve and expand to meet the health care needs of its patients, it has remained committed to providing quality care, top-notch customer service and progressive deployment medicine while promoting a values-based, standards-driven culture.
Secure Messaging Service
Madigan is pleased to offer a new convenient way to connect with your health care team. You can now communicate with clinics online using our Secure Messaging Service.

Parents, please note: If you have a child age 13 and Older, you may register them under your account as a dependant, but they should also register themselves under their own private email account. This will allow them to receive specific, condition-associated secure correspondence from their provider in accordance with the Washington State Mature Minor Law (RCW 70.02.130).

Exceptional Family Member Program
The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a mandatory enrollment program that works with other military and civilian agencies to provide a comprehensive, coordinated and multidisciplinary approach for medical, educational and community support services to families with special needs. Soldiers and Airmen on active-duty enroll in the program when they have a Family member with a physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual disability requiring specialized services so their needs can be considered in the military assignment process. When possible, active-duty service members are assigned to an area where the medical and special education needs of the family member can be met, giving the service member the opportunity to have missions important to the military that meld with their special needs.
Eligible Families enroll in the program through the EFMP office at Madigan Army Medical Center (Room 1-28-17, first floor of the hospital tower). Contact numbers are (253) 968-1370 or (253) 968-0254.
Medical enrollment requires a completed Medical Summary, DD Form 2792.
Educational enrollment requires a completed Educational Summary, DD Form 2792-1.
Enrollments must be updated as conditions change, or at least every three years. Other services at the Madigan EFMP site include enrollment updates, disenrollment, and overseas screenings. Enrollment Forms are avail
able at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord MWR website: www.jblmmwr.com/other_pages/acs/ efmp_how_to_enroll.html
Warrior Transition Unit
In 2007, Madigan activated a Warrior Transition Battalion for wounded, ill and injured Soldiers. Madigan’s Warrior Transition Battalion is one of 29 Warrior Transition Units throughout the Army. The WTB provides medical care, advocacy and leadership to active-duty, Army National Guard and Army Reserve Soldiers who need complex long-term care. The WTB’s primary mission is to assist Soldiers and their Families through their healing and transition back to regular duty or to civilian life. Its innovative programs and comprehensive care continue to evolve to meet the physical, emotional and intellectual needs of the Soldiers.
The WTB also oversees a Community- Based Warrior Transition Unit that allows Guard and Reserve Soldiers to live with their families and to receive local health care in communities not near Army medical facilities. In addition, the WTB shares and partners with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and other governmental agencies to enhance the care of and service to Soldiers and Families at the national and local level.
