Emergency Medical Care

Emergency conditions are those that threaten your life, limb or eyesight. TRICARE defines an emergency as a medical, maternity or psychiatric condition that would lead a “prudent layperson” (someone with average knowledge of health and medicine) to believe that a serious medical condition existed, or the absence of medical attention would result in a threat to his or her life, limb or sight and requires immediate medical treatment or which has painful symptoms requiring immediate attention to relieve suffering.

Kirk U.S. Army Health Clinic does not have an emergency room.
