Buckley Clinic moves to new location

BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The Buckley Clinic moves to fourth floor of the Aurora North medical building at 830 Potomac Circle March 19. 

With the lease at the current clinic terminating at the end of March, 460th Medical Group officials said the move from the Anshutz Outpatient Pavilion has been "in the works" for months to ensure Team Buckley a seamless transition. 

"Active duty personnel and their family members will still receive the same quality care as before," said Senior Master Sgt. Loretta Bush, the 460th MDG Superintendent, Administrative Services. "The only major change customers will see is the new location and consolidation of services." 

One change people will see is the ability to fill new prescriptions in the Pharmacy located within the new clinic. Refills will still be filled at the satellite pharmacy located at 541 Norfolk St., Aurora. Norfolk Street is located off 6th Avenue between Laredo and Airport Road. 

Along with the Pharmacy, the new clinic will include Family Practice, Life Skills, Immunizations, Flight Medicine, Laboratory Services, Optometry, Administrative Services and command functions, and a Public Health representative. The TRICARE Service Center is also located on the first floor of the building. 

Individuals requiring care outside the services offered at the clinic will be referred to one of many medical facilities in the local TRICARE network. 

The clinic hours remain 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Patrons can make appointments with the Primary Care Clinic by calling 720-847-WELL (9355), or visiting http://www.tricareonline.com. There are no same-day appointments available on the website, and appointment availability will range from next day to 28 days. 

"We're still dedicated to providing the best possible care for our customers," said Sergeant Bush. "The new location makes it easier for us to provide that care."
