Womack Army Medical Center is growing the level of services available and opening primary care enrollment to TRICARE beneficiaries ages 65 plus.
The openings come as the hospital is preparing to expand its graduate medical education program, bringing in additional primary and specialty care providers in Family Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Orthopedics and Internal Medicine.
WAMC’s surgical capability is also increasing with new surgeons already on staff capable of performing complex procedures to include hip replacements and a variety of heart surgeries. Additionally, Womack recently began providing inpatient dialysis for patients suffering acute kidney or renal failure.
“One of the best reasons for patients to choose to come back to Womack for care is that we’re able to provide most of the primary and specialty care they need here in one building,” said Maj. Summer Moore, chief, Clinical Operations Division, WAMC. “Instead of traveling for referrals or waiting for the transfer of medical records, you can simply make an appointment with a specialty care provider in the same facility who can easily review your entire medical history.”
Moore said that she’s happy that Womack is now able to bring people who may have served on Fort Bragg during their military career and decided to stay in the area back to the installation to receive their healthcare.
“We’re really excited to be able to bring more of our retirees and their Families back to Womack,” she said. “Being afforded the opportunity to provide them with the quality healthcare they deserve is our way of saying thank you for their service.”
