Emergency Department / Ambulance Services
We provide comprehensive adult and pediatric emergency care services for all eligible Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs beneficiaries, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients receive an initial triage assessment by a nurse or paramedic and evaluation by a board-certified emergency medicine physician or emergency medicine physician assistant. The emergency department should be reserved for concerns related to loss of life, limb, or eyesight. Call 911 to request an ambulance on- or off-base. Fire and Emergency Services personnel provide on-base ambulance services for medical emergencies. Anchorage Fire Department paramedics provide off-base ambulance services. A fee is charged for this service but it may be partially reimbursed by TRICARE, depending on the nature of your emergency.
