  • 72nd MDG COVID-19 clinic receives upgrades

    With the onset of coronavirus in March, the 72nd Medical Group clinic operations were significantly diminished in order to protect both its patients and staff, now as much as possible, operations are returning to normal. The response to the pandemic has progressed and what initially began as a pop-up tent clinic for COVID-19 patients has now evolved into three hardened structures, providing increased capabilities. The new clinic area is now located on the south end of the Medical Group parking lot, next to the Hill Conference Center. The Respiratory Clinic will feature new signage to direct vehicles in the proper direction, to streamline the process and make treatment more patient centered. “Once a vehicle enters, one of our teams will tend to the vehicle,” Capt. Audrick Yee, nurse practitioner said. “We’ll triage the individuals and keep them separate from the main clinic. Based off their screening results, they will be escorted to the appropriate area.” Yee is one of nearly 40 providers in the 72nd MDG, and is part of a rotational team servicing the Respiratory Clinic. In order to offer the best and safest care, the clinic will operate Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Providers will rotate as well, Yee said, so there will be lower rates of possible exposure.
