HONOLULU—Tripler Army Medical Center’s Travel Clinic is now offering an appointment system to make it easier on patients and decrease waiting times.
The clinic is for people who will be traveling outside the country, military or civilians, who are eligible for care at Tripler, said Capt. Lisa M. Lute, head nurse of the Travel and Allergy and Immunization Clinic. This includes travel for deployments, Temporary Duty or TDYs, and vacations or holidays.
Appointments are now available for travel consults by calling 433-4541. Travel clinic appointment hours are 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. on Tuesdays.
“We will continue to have walk in travel clinic for those who do not have advanced notice regarding travel. Walk in hours are Tuesday 1 – 3 p.m., and Wednesdays and Fridays, 9 – 11:30 a.m.,” Lute said.
The two easiest ways to get to the clinic, which is located inside the Allergy and Immunization Clinic, are:
1. Park on the Mountainside and stay to your left. Walk all the way down the left corridor and you’ll be at the clinic.
2. Park Oceanside and take the elevators near the Tripler Post Office and Distribution Center. Go to the fourth floor, turn right and you will be at the clinic.
“We encourage people to make appointments so they will not have to wait,” Lute said.
