Keesler Medical Center clinics are closed for Warrior Training from 1-5 p.m. the second Thursday of each month.

Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and General Surgery Clinics will have one doctor available from each clinic for urgent appointments.  For urgent situations, eligible patients should report to the appropriate clinic or contact Central Appointments at 1-800-700-8603.


The first aid station is open for simple acute needs but cannot provide medication refills or urgent/emergent care.  The medical center does not have emergency services at this time.


Pharmacy, Radiology and Laboratory services are open but with reduced staffing.  Please be prepared for increased waiting times for these services.

For emergency situations such as shortness of breath, chest or abdominal pain or bleeding with pregnancy, please go to the nearest emergency room.


If this is an emergency, contact 911 for an ambulance.


The 81st Medical Group is committed to maintaining the highest level of war and peacetime readiness.  It does this through monthly training sessions.  They apologize for any inconvenience.
