Health Clinics

Javier Villanueva Troop Medical Clinic

The JVTMC is modeled after the DoD Health Affairs standard of a Soldier Centered Medical Home with the goal of providing support to all 11th ACR Soldiers with acute, well-patient, and follow-up appointments each day.

  • The facility is a scheduled appointment clinic. Walking in requesting to see a provider is not recommended.
  • Hours vary to provide maximum coverage for patients. Please check hours (left) prior to visiting the clinic.

Sick Call

Soldiers must report to sick call between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. in order to receive a same day sick call/acute appointment. When Soldiers report to sick call, they must be in uniform and need to have a DD Form 689 (sick call slip) signed by their first sergeant.

Sick call is only for acute conditions that have been going on for 72 hours or less. For issues that have been going on longer than 72 hours, Soldiers will be told to make an appointment after 09:00 a.m. in clinic or to call the Appointment Hotline.

During rotational weekends, sick call is from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

Medication Refills and Other Inquiries

Soldiers can request a medication refill by calling in or coming into the clinic after 09:00 a.m. as long as the medication is not a controlled substance, narcotic, or behavior health medication. Telephone consults (t-cons) will be put through by the front desk for medication refills and are also available as additional route for ordering/obtaining lab/radiology tests and results and other services. When requesting a medication, the Soldier must know the name of the medication and the dosage. All controlled substances, narcotics, and behavior health medications will be refilled by appointment only.

Immunizations

Standard immunizations and HIV blood draws are completed daily as walk-ins between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Please Note:

The clinic is closed from noon to 1:00 p.m. for lunch everyday but in order to provide the most coverage possible there will always be someone to answer the phone at the front desk until 1600.

The Javier Villanueva Troop Medical Clinic is named after Specialist Javier A. Villanueva of Temple, Texas.

Specialist Villanueva was assigned to 2nd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, Fort Irwin, when he died on Nov. 24, 2005 in Asad, Iraq, of injuries sustained the previous day, Nov. 23, when he was killed in action by an improvised explosive device detonated near his dismounted patrol during combat operations in Hit, Iraq.
