***image1***The U. S. Army Health Clinic, Kaiserslautern on Kleber Kaserne provides high quality primary care, minor surgery and ancillary services to the eligible Soldiers, family members, Department of Defense civilians and contractors that live and work in the KMC. 
As a Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and College of American Pathologists accredited medical facility, patients can be assured that we’ve achieved and continue to maintain the military and civilian gold standards for care quality.
The USAHC-KSL provides a host of services to meet the health care and wellness needs of the KMC. 
Through our same day appointment system (0631-411-1750 or 483-1750), and the Tricare online.com portal, we attempt to make the appointment process as easy as possible for our empanelled patients. Patients can even use our telephone consult service to request routine prescription refills, obtain test results and talk to a doctor or nurse without having to travel to the clinic. 
However, should a need to visit the clinic arise, we provide acute care, well-baby examinations, physical examinations, minor surgeries and physical therapy services. We also offer immunization, pharmacy, laboratory and X-Ray services. 
Beginning in June, our new Optometrist will offer a full range of opportunities to better meet the eye care needs of the KMC.
 Our Soldier Medical Readiness Center offers one-stop medical deployment preparation and post deployment medical processing services for Soldiers, civilians and eligible contractors. 
In conjunction with the collocated U. S. Army Dental Clinic, we seek to provide deploying and returning Soldiers with thoughtful and compassionate care to assist them as they transition into and out of hostile areas.
 For non-primary care needs, the clinic also offers specialty referrals to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center.
Always cognizant of our patients’ concerns, we make every effort to continually update our processes to make the care experience as seamless as possible.
 The civilians and Soldiers of the clinic, Kaiserslautern, are truly committed to providing outstanding care.
We are open from 7 am to 6 p.m. Monday to Wednesday, noon to 4 p.m. on Thursdays and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fridays. 
Our telephone lines open at 6:30 a.m. daily, but Thursday we begin taking calls at noon.
With each prescription that is filled, each minor surgery that is performed and each and every patient visit, we strive to work more cohesively to be the health care team of choice.
