BAMC provides weather update for patients, staff for Feb. 18

By Brooke Army Medical Center Public Affairs Brooke Army Medical Center Public Affairs

Due to hazardous road conditions and to conserve power, only emergency-essential Joint Base San Antonio personnel, including Brooke Army Medical Center staff supporting patient care, should report to work Thursday, Feb. 18. 
To ensure the safety of patients and staff and to conserve resources, BAMC has canceled all non-emergency procedures and medical appointments scheduled for Feb. 18. To reschedule, call the Consult Appointment Management Office, or CAMO, 210-916-9900. CAMO is anticipated to reopen Friday afternoon, weather permitting. BAMC’s trauma and emergency services will remain operational.
  • All COVID-19 vaccine appointments are being rescheduled for next week.
  • COVID-19 screening and testing operations at BAMC will be closed today and reopen Friday afternoon, weather permitting.
  • Outpatient pharmacies and outlying clinics are also closed due to weather Feb. 18.
Patients who have questions or concerns regarding their treatment or ability to delay an appointment should contact the Military Health System Nurse Advice Line by visiting for a web or video chat or call 1-800-874-2273, option 1. If you need immediate medical attention, call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room.
Supervisors are encouraged to consider telework, mission permitting, for their team members on Feb. 18. Staff should contact their chain of command/supervisor to determine their status and for questions or concerns.
A final round of wintry precipitation is forecast late tonight into Thursday afternoon, starting as patchy freezing rain and sleet then changing over to snow. Additional light ice accumulations are possible. Please continue to bundle up while this record cold continues in South Central Texas. Remember to continue to drip pipes, keep pets inside, check in with high-risk loved ones, and stay safe by staying home!
For all of our staff working this week, thank you for your dedication and commitment to patient care! We appreciate you!
