MCLB Albany has a small branch medical clinic of the Naval Hospital, Jacksonville, FL. Services are limited. Appointments can be made by calling 229-639-5976. The city of Albany has two large hospitals with a wide variety of services. The base clinic will refer patients to specialists in town. Local hospitals are:

* Phoebe Putney Hospital
* Palmyra Hospital


Dental services on base are for the active duty members only. Family members should establish a relationship with a dentist in town shortly after arriving. Many area dentists do not see patients on an emergency basis unless they have already been established. If you have been overseas and stopped your TRICARE Active Duty Family Member Dental Insurance, you will need to elect coverage again once you return stateside. See other sections in this category for more information on available dental services.

HEALTH NOTE-Southwest Georgia is not the best environment for people who have asthma, allergies, or other respiratory problems. If you have asthma or allergies, we encourage you to contact the medical personnel and TRICARE prior to relocating here.
