F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --

Two years of hard work resulted in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new wing at the medical clinic on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo., Oct. 19.

 

In 2014, 90th Medical Group leadership identified several areas that needed renovations to provide better care to the base and the community.

 

"Although there were numerous changes some of the noteworthy highlights are the transition from a hospital to an outpatient clinic, the implementation of the Air Force whole medical model and the introduction of the Air Force's medical service Trusted Care program," said Cherron Galluzzo, 90th MDG commander.

 

Renovation resulted in an increase of space throughout the building and the standardization of requirements.

 

"We have modernized 48 percent of the 90th MDG and were able to bring physical therapy back into the footprint of our clinic," said Galluzzo.

 

In addition to reintroducing physical therapy to the clinic, the mental health department received a state-of-the-art redesign to showcase Air Force architecture.

 

"We know this journey is not yet complete, but this ceremony is significant," said Galluzzo. "It is important to recognize that this was a major collaborative effort across numerous agencies."
