Richmond Hill Clinic

Asking patients and families what matters most to them is critical to engaging them in care. Asking patients and families about their views of their health needs, understanding the context of their lives, and learning about their values and preferences are important steps in effectively engaging families in their care and providing effective care. Understanding what matters most to patients is crucial to helping them to develop a care plan and follow through with self-care. Army Medicine’s number one priority to our Soldiers and Family members is to provide easy access to the best quality health care possible while maintaining Soldier medical readiness. Our goal is to have the right provider, providing care at the right time, using the right venue that’s best for the Family members by making primary care services easier to obtain. Community Based Primary Care Clinics improve access to primary care by reducing reliance on the emergency room for routine health care needs.

In addition to Primary Care, these services will also be provided:

Immunization Services – Immunization services are preventive services determined by the patient’s care team based on age, gender, or risk factors.

Pharmacy Services – Pharmacy services include medication dispensing for new prescriptions and refills (enrolled beneficiaries only), patient education, individual and group consultations, medication reconciliation, and prescription monitoring.

Laboratory Services – This is a moderate complexity lab. Laboratory services include phlebotomy, specimen processing, and results reporting.

Radiology Services – Because patients must be sent off-site for radiology services, the clinic ensures that delivery of radiology services is seamless. This means that patient instructions are clear, that the receiving radiology center is informed of the patient’s requirements, that the patient knows what to do after the study is complete, and that results are immediately available to the ordering clinician.

Behavioral Health Services – Scope of care includes assessment, diagnosis, and brief counseling for common primary care diagnoses (anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, stress reactions, etc.) and behavioral modification related to chronic disease and prevention.
