Question & Answer Session from the January 2015 Town Hall Meeting.

Brian Allgood Hospital (LTC Jeff Hill, Deputy Commander)

1. ISSUE: When will Medevac have the resources to meet mission requirements -- there is a problem with off-hour gaps?
RESPONSE: It may be a coordination problem. If someone calls 911 you will get a Medic Team and a Transport Team. Actually, Korean hospitals are better equipped to meet many needs. The question is: "How to get the people to the local resources?"
STATUS: Final
POC: LTC Hill, DSN 737-2273


2. ISSUE: When will resources from Yongsan come to Camp Humphreys?
RESPONSE: When the hospital at Camp Humphreys is ready -- we will moveā€¦ probably in late 2017.
STATUS: Open
POC: LTC Hill, DSN 737-2273


3. ISSUE: Why was there a reduction at the Humphreys' Clinic?
RESPONSE: I have tried to push providers to Humphreys.
STATUS: Open
POC: LTC Hill, DSN 737-2273


4. ISSUE: How does the ratio of providers compare with Humphreys and Yongsan?
RESPONSE: An increased ration of providers is needed at Yongsan since they provide more services. More Doctors are needed at 121 because they are on-call.
STATUS: Closed
POC: LTC Hill, DSN 737-2273


5. ISSUE: How many doctors at Yongsan see patients and how many don't?
RESPONSE: Some doctors at Yongsan cannot see patients because of other duties such as senior leadership. Four or five of the doctors assigned to Yongsan do not see patients.
STATUS: Closed
POC: LTC Hill, DSN 737-2273


6. ISSUE: Humphreys used to have two pediatricians and one was sent to Yongsan. Why?
RESPONSE: I cannot discuss that. Others can provide for children; for example, Family Practice. Humphreys has 4 providers that can see children under the age of 2. We are realigning older adolescents to see other providers.
STATUS: Closed
POC: LTC Hill, DSN 737-2273


7. ISSUE: Where do you go for on-call after hour's dentist services?
RESPONSE: Go to the clinic, they will contact the CQ.
STATUS: Closed
POC: MAJ Kwon, DENTAC, DSN 753-6570


8. ISSUE: Can the medics at the Clinic contact Air Evac?
RESPONSE: Yes
STATUS: Closed
POC: LTC Cole, 3-2 GSAB, DSN 753-6809


9. ISSUE: Is calling 119 valid off-post?
RESPONSE: We recommend that those located off-post dial 031-690-7911.
STATUS: Closed
POC: Mr. Thomas, DES, DSN 753-3199



10. ISSUE: Why is smoking allowed in the Gateway Club?
RESPONSE: We tried to make it a No Smoking area, but lost thousands of dollars in slot machine revenue. We relooked the regulation and decided we could allow smoking within the Gateway Club.
STATUS: Closed
POC: Mr. Claycomb, DFMWR, DSN 753-6095


11. ISSUE: Quarry Gate closes at 1830 hours. Can we leave it open longer?
RESPONSE: Gate hours are driven by Army Standards. We think we have the right hours now. We will take another look to see if it should remain open longer.
STATUS: Open
POC: Mr. Thomas, DES, DSN 753-3199


12. ISSUE: Can off-post traffic lights near the main gate be put on sensors?
RESPONSE: We have discussed that with the local authorities. We meet with the local KNP monthly, so I will bring the issue up again.
STATUS: Open
POC: Mr. Thomas, DES, DSN 753-3199


13. ISSUE: Why are Soldiers required to sign two-year leases -- can't we sign a one- year lease?
RESPONSE: In the past, when most signed one-year leases expired, landlords would sometimes increase the rent as the lease was renewed. Housing will allow a one-year lease.
STATUS: Closed
POC: Ms. Wilson, DPW (HSG MGR), DSN 753-7356


14. ISSUE: When people without ID cards, such as Contractors, arrive late at night they sometimes have problems getting signed onto post. When can we get this synchronized?
RESPONSE: You can go to the Garrison website, look under Emergency Services, and it will tell you how to get people on base. If you have someone coming on an evening or weekend you can call DBIDS in advance to have them registered.
STATUS: Closed
POC: Mr. Thomas, DES, DSN 753-3199


8. ISSUE: I know a Family that lives off-post and called 119 regarding a fire. The individual on the other end could not understand.
RESPONSE: Normally they will put the caller on hold and transfer the call to Camp Humphreys. We will have the Fire Chief contact the off-post emergency service providers to fix any issues. (Individuals living off-post can also call the on-post emergency number (031-690-7911) and our operator will contact the off-post 119 emergency provide and get services to where they are needed. We will post information about how to make emergency calls on Facebook and in Garrison Notes).
STATUS: Open
POC: Mr. Thomas, DES, DSN 753-3199
