Accessing Health Care at Tripler Army Medical CenterTripler Army Medical Center, U.S. Army Health Clinic-Schofield Barracks and the Warrior Ohana Medical Home use a Central Appointment System that allows a patient to dial just one number to make appointments with several clinics. Patients should not expect to see a doctor without an appointment, except for emergencies and during announced walk-in clinic hours.
The central appointment line is menu-driven. This allows you to direct your call to the appropriate clinic appointment clerk, by choosing from several main menu choices, then choosing from other series of menu choices, to contact the specialty clinic or office you want.
Family members should have their sponsor’s social security number and other required DEERS information available when they call for an appointment. Appointment personnel may ask the caller questions to help them evaluate the health situation of the person requiring care, so that they receive the appropriate care.
Once you have your appointment scheduled, take a few moments to familiarize yourself with Tripler’s unique and sprawling layout. A map of the facility as well as a color-coded guide to parking areas is available on the Visiting Tripler page.
The phone number to the appointment line is 808-433-2778. You can also call 1-800-322-TAMC (8262). The appointment line is open Monday-Friday, except holidays, 6:30 a.m.-4:25 p.m. Please note that some specialty clinics have different hours of operation and if you select that clinic from the automated menu, it may not be available the same hours.
The best days to call the appointment line are Thursday and Friday afternoons and on paydays. The worst days to call are Mondays, Tuesdays and after holidays. The shortest wait times are between 9-11 a.m. and after 2 p.m.
