We are grateful to the men and women who risk their lives to fight terrorism in Afghanistan, Iraq and many other places around the world. If you have served in:

and have any inquiries about our health care services, please contact us our OIF/OEF/OND Outreach Contacts
Patient Feedback Tools
We also have a number of feedback tools for you to provide information about the care and service you receive. Please take the time to participate in and use these feedback tools. Our goal is to provide compassionate, quality care in a timely manner.
During your stay, you may receive a 'quick card.' This is a short patient satisfaction survey asking for feedback about your perception of the care you are receiving.
You may answer your quick card anonymously, or you may provide your name and contact information if you would like us to contact you about the resolution of any issues.
Patient Healthcare Survey
After your visit, you may receive a confidential questionnaire in the mail asking you about your most recent outpatient or inpatient treatment at our medical center.
Please use the survey to let us know of any concerns, complaints, or questions you have about your care, so that we can resolve them. We also appreciate compliments about what we are doing right.
