EFMP In/Out Processing Hours
The Keller Army Community Hospital Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) has established limited hours for in/out processing for active duty members  from 9-11 a.m. Monday-Friday.

KACH Substance Use Disorder Clinic open
The KACH’s Substance Use Disorder Clinic Care (SUDCC) is open to cadets, active duty service members and beneficiaries who are interested in seeking help independently.
The clinic provides substance use disorder clinical care, including assessment, education, treatment, rehabilitation and aftercare, for cadets, service members and other beneficiaries within an integrated medical and behavioral health model to enhance health and readiness.
It is preferred to have individuals seek education and treatment on their own, in hopes to prevent them from possibly experiencing an alcohol or drug related incident.
Seeking education and treatment independently does not require command involvement or an official enrollment into the program.
The SUDCC is located in Building 656 and you can schedule an appointment by walking in from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday- Friday or calling 845-938-7691.

Help KACH reduce, eliminate “No Shows”
Keller Army Community Hospital is asking for your assistance in reducing, and eventually, eliminating “no-shows” on missed appointments.
There is a saying in the medical community that “an appointment missed by you, is an appointment missed by two”—1.) the appointment missed by the patient, and 2.) that missed appointment time that another patient could have had.
KACH asks that as soon as you realize you will not make your scheduled appointment, call the Appointment Center at 845-938-7992 or 800-552-2907, or visit https://www.tricareonline.com/, and cancel so we can re-book that slot for another beneficiary.
We thank you for your assistance.

Primary Care dedicates clinic to Sports/School Physicals and Immunizations
The Keller Army Community Hospital Primary Care Department. is opening dedicated clinics on Aug. 1, 2, 12 and 13 to ensure that incoming children and those unable to make an appointment earlier in the summer have their physicals prior to the start of the school year.
This is also the time to review your child’s immunizations, and prepare additional documentation for the administration of medications during school hours or emergency instructions for children with known allergies.
Please call 845-938-7992 or 800-552-2907 today to request an appointment for the dedicated school or sports physical days or you can make an appointment at your convenience.
