FORT JACKSON, S.C. -- Moncrief Medical Home, Moncrief Army Community Hospital's community based primary care clinic, is hosting its one year anniversary open house celebration from 3 to 5 p.m., Friday. Anyone interested in learning more about the clinic and the services it provides is welcome to attend. There will be refreshments and tours of the clinic.

In addition to primary care, Moncrief Medical Home provides the following services:

 Immunization Services: Immunization services are preventive services determined by the patient's care team based on age, gender or risk factors.

 Pharmacy Services: Pharmacy services include medication dispensing for new prescriptions and refills (enrolled beneficiaries only), patient education, individual and group consultations, medication reconciliation and prescription monitoring.

 Laboratory Services: This is a moderate complexity lab. Laboratory services include phlebotomy, specimen processing and results reporting.

 Radiology Services: Because patients must be sent off-site for radiology services, the clinic ensures that delivery of radiology services is seamless. This means that patient instructions are clear, that the receiving radiology center is informed of the patient's requirements, that the patient knows what to do after the study is complete, and that results are immediately available to the ordering clinician.

 Behavioral Health Services: Scope of care includes assessment, diagnosis and brief counseling for common primary care diagnoses (anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders, stress reactions, etc.) and behavioral modification related to chronic disease and prevention.

The 10,000-square-foot clinic is located at 1021 Pinnacle Pointe Drive and is open to all beneficiaries in the Columbia and surrounding areas. Community Based Primary Care Clinics improve access to primary care by reducing reliance on the emergency room for routine health care needs.
