Primary Care

We are pleased you have made Barquist Army Health Clinic your clinic of choice.  It is our goal to partner with you to provide the best healthcare and provide you with unparalleled customer service.

The Patient-Centered Medical Home Model is a primary-care model adopted throughout the Military Health System and in many civilian practices throughout the nation. It is healthcare as it should be - easy to access, patient-centered, team-based and quality-focused. This vision has begun at Barquist Army Health Clinic where we are committed to using evidence-based practices to provide the most effective treatment for our patient population.

You will be assigned to a specific primary care manager (PCM) that is on either Team Potomac or Team Shenandoah and you should see your PCM every time you visit the clinic. You will be provided with your PCM’s name when you enroll and each time you request an appointment. Each provider/nurse team has a designated phone line for you to use for non-emergency medical concerns. This continuity will provide a partnership for your healthcare.

Mission

We are dedicated to providing ready medical forces that enable health service support and force health protection across the Fort Meade MEDDAC AOR to sustain the readiness of the Joint Force. 

Vision

The Fort Meade MEDDAC is a premier team of well trained, caring, adaptive leaders of character who deliver ready medical forces prepared to support the full range of military operations. 

Priorities

The Enduring "Eight" will be the overarching priorities that guide us: P.R.O.V.I.D.E.R.! 
  • People - Taking care of people, our staff and our beneficiaries, defines our success. We will deliver safe, quality, patient centered health care that improves outcomes for all those entrusted to care.
  • Readiness - We will promote and improve readiness to sustain the health of the force. Leaders at all levels will ensure the readiness and welfare of the Meade MEDDAC Team and our Service Members.
  • Organize Our Systems - We must do routine things routinely. We will develop systems at all levels to ensure routine tasks are conducted to standard and tracked. A system consists of a task, a doer and a checker and has a function, a timeline, and assigns responsibility for execution and follow up. 
  • Values-Driven - We will live the Army Values 24/7 and set and enforce high standards of competence, physical fitness and conduct. We will act with integrity in all professional, social, and online environments. We will model ethical conduct and produce leaders that hold each other accountable. 
  • Inspire Trust - Leaders will build cohesive teams by establishing a safe, positive command climate where everyone is able to thrive while living honorably and achieving results. 
  • Develop Leaders - The Army does not hire adaptive leaders of character... we grow them. Leader training, education, talent management, certification and counseling form the foundation for mission success.
  • Enhance the Patient Experience - We will improve care processes to be responsive to the needs of our beneficiaries. We will leverage technology to optimize readiness, access, and patient experience, eliminate preventable harm, and integrate high-reliability clinical process improvements. 
  • Resource the Mission - We will align resources against priorities that support the commander's intent and achieve mission readiness requirements. Everyone is responsible for the stewardship of unit resources and accomplishing the mission
