About the Tripler Army Medical Center:

 

The mission of the military healthcare system (MHS) is to ensure the nation has available at all times a healthy military force supported by a combat ready healthcare system. Health care services for eligible MHS beneficiaries are provided at military treatment facilities (MTFs) located on or near military installations or posts. The military treatment facility may be a clinic, Hospital, or Medical Center. Clinics are outpatient facilities offering primary care or simple specialty care (routine exams, tests, treatments). The Clinic may be a stand-alone site or a satellite of a larger Clinic, Hospital, or Medical Center. Army Community Hospitals (ACH) offer more complex, resource-intensive secondary care (e.g. inpatient care, surgery under anesthesia) and primary care at outpatient clinics inside and outside the hospital. Army Medical Centers (MEDCENs) offer tertiary (sophisticated diagnosis/ treatment of any ailment), secondary, and primary care, hospital services, preventive services, blood bank, and other services. In addition, all MEDCENs offer graduate medical education programs for physicians.

 

Tripler Army Medical Center is the headquarters of the Pacific Regional Medical Command of the armed forces administered by the United States Army in the State of Hawaii. It is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region and serves a military sphere of jurisdiction. During a single day of operations at Tripler Army Medical Center, personnel serve an average of 1,728 meals, tend to 2,248 clinic visits and 110 emergency room visits, fill 1,193 prescriptions, complete 25,000 pathology procedures and deliver eight (8) infants.
