SAMHS releases Labor Day operating hours

By 59th Medical Wing Public Affairs 59th Medical Wing Public Affairs

The San Antonio Military Health System has released its Labor Day weekend operating hours for Sept. 4-7.

For Sept. 4, the Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland (Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center) and JBSA-Randolph medical treatment facilities will have limited services available.

Primary Care Clinics (Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Behavioral Health Optimization Program, Flight Medicine, and WOMC), as well as the Gateway Bulverde Family Practice Clinic (located at the intersection on Highway 281 and Overlook Parkway), will remain open for same-day prescheduled appointments.  Limited specialty care clinics will be open for prescheduled appointments. Walk-in services will not be available.

JBSA-Lackland's (WHASC) and JBSA-Randolph's main pharmacies will be open for same-day appointment services Sept. 4. The JBSA-Gateway Bulverde Pharmacy, JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Randolph satellite pharmacies will be closed. Consider bringing in prescriptions or ordering refills for pick up prior to Sept. 3, since the day prior to and the day after a holiday are usually extremely busy and results in longer than normal wait times.

All clinics and pharmacies will be closed Monday, Sept. 7, in observance of the Labor Day Holiday.

San Antonio Military Health System's COVID-19 screening and testing sites will adjust hours of operation to the following:

  • BAMC's site, located in the first-floor parking garage, will be open Sept. 4, from 8 a.m. to noon. The JBSA-Lackland site will be closed.
  • JBSA-Lackland's site, located in the first-floor parking garage, will be open Sept. 7 from 8 a.m. to noon. The BAMC site will be closed.
  • JBSA-Randolph's site at the Randolph clinic will be closed Sept. 4-7.

For medical emergencies, dial 911 or visit the nearest Emergency Department. As a reminder, the JBSA-Lackland Family Emergency Center and Brooke Army Medical Center Emergency Departments are open 24 hours a day.

For non-urgent medical questions, the Nurse Advice Line offers nursing advice by phone, chat, or video and can be reached at 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273). Non-active duty patients can visit the nearest Urgent Care Center without a referral for urgent medical concerns.
