Little Rock Clinic provides peacetime healthcare to active duty personnel and ensures that they are ready for wartime deployments. Active duty members are the first priority of medical services. They are entitled to receive complete treatment.

The Little Rock AFB 314th Medical Operations Squadron offers a variety of services ranging from health care to physical therapy for TRICARE Prime patients assigned to the facility. TRICARE Prime enrollees are the second priority. All other beneficiaries will be treated on a space available basis. Space available appointments are defined as a routine appointment that is open within 2 hours of the call.

The medical facility does not have inpatient capabilities and does not offer emergency medical care. Emergency services are available at local civilian hospitals. Life threatening conditions are stabilized for transport to local hospitals. When care is unavailable on the installation, then services can be located out in the local community.

Clinics are open 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., with these exceptions: Flight Medicine - 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.; Family Practice - Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and weekends/holidays 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Routine and acute appointments are made by calling 501-987-8811. Out of the local area, call 1-800-557-6815.
