Appointment Guidelines: Routine/Non-Urgent Visits: Call Central Appointing at 850-883-8600. If you are unable to book an appointment with your Primary Care Manager (PCM), please request a Telephone Consult (TCON).
Urgent Care Visits: Call Central Appointing at 850-883-8600. For after hours care call Central Appointing and follow the prompts. You must receive approval from the on-call provider prior to visiting an off-base urgent care center or you will be responsible for any charges incurred.
Emergency visits threatening life, limb, eyesight, etc call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room (ER). You must call your PCM within 24-hours to report a civilian ER visit.
Canceling Appointments/No-Show Policy: Patients may cancel an appointment up to 24-hours before the scheduled appointment. If you are unable or no longer need to attend your appointment, call Central Appointments. Managing cancelled appointments drastically reduces the amount of funds spent per cancelled visit and improves access to care to other beneficiaries. For each patient that is referred downtown during a no-show appointment the Department of Defense spends approximately $250 dollars per visit, in addition to the lost appointment incurred for other patients.

Like Hurlburt Field, the 1st Special Operations Medical Group owes its birth to Eglin Air Force Base. Due to the increasing demand for accessible medical care at Hurlburt Field, the Regional Hospital at Eglin ran a small satellite troop clinic operating out of a Hurlburt Field building with a staff of 35. Primary care was provided by one physician and two physician assistants. Flight Medicine was housed in a trailer parked beside the clinic building.
Ground breaking on the current clinic facility occurred in 1990 and a "super clinic" originally designed to be staffed with 88 personnel was born. In late 1992, clinic personnel moved into the new building. In October 1994, the Hurlburt Field Clinic stood up on its own as the 16th Medical Group, Commanded by Colonel John Grossi. On 16 November 2006, the group became the 1st Special Operations Medical Group.
Today, the group continues to expand and is currently staffed by 400 military, civilian and contract personnel and supports a growing number of units on Hurlburt Field. The unit promotes and maintains the health of 8,900 active duty, reserve IMA, and civilian personnel, and 17,500 enrolled beneficiaries from 4 groups, 25 squadrons, 12 staff agencies, and 38 partner units. The group provides an array of primary care services, ancillaries, dental, flight medicine, force health management, and behavioral health services.
Lineage: Established as 16th Medical Group on 15 Aug 1994. Activated on 1 Oct 1994. Redesignated 1st Special Operations Medical Group on 16 Nov 2006.
Emblem: The emblem of the 1st Special Operations Medical Group is that of the 1st Special Operations Wing with the group designation in the scroll. It is symbolic of the organization's history and mission. The blue background represents the sky and the United States Air Force. The 13 red and white stripes stand for the nation's original 13 colonies, the first American force to engage in war to defend freedom. The silver dagger is winged to indicate the 1st Special Operations Wing brings force through the air. A golden lamp of knowledge reflects the wing's civic action role and indicates that members of the 1st Special Operations Wing serve as teachers, as well as warriors, in helping our allies determine their own way of life and form of government.
