When are the clinics moving?
Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, in partnership with Spectrum Healthcare, plans to open the Dumfries and Fairfax Health Centers on July 2, 2012.
What services will be available in the new clinics?
The Dumfries and Fairfax Health Centers will provide the full range of services offered at the former locations. Services will include outpatient primary and specialty care, health promotion programs, and on-site pharmacy, radiology and laboratory services.
The new clinic sites will serve about 47,000 military personnel and their families who are enrolled in TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Plus programs. Our goal has not changed and remains unwavering: to provide all of our patients with the highest quality of care and support.

What about parking at the new locations?
Both new clinic locations include ample, conveniently located parking spaces.
Are the phone numbers changing?
Dumfries Health Center: Current phone numbers will remain functional through the clinic transition and for a 90-day period after moving to the new location, until Oct. 1, 2012.
Fairfax Health Center: Current phone numbers will remain functional through the clinic transition and for a 90-day period after moving to the new location, until Oct. 1, 2012.
The new phone numbers will become active July 2. Patients are encouraged to begin using the new numbers on July 2, and update their phone books to these new numbers. Effective Oct. 1, all calls to the old numbers for both clinics (listed above) will hear a recorded message which will provide these new numbers.
Why is the Woodbridge clinic relocating to Dumfries, close to the Quantico Naval Health Clinic?Both the new Fairfax and Dumfries sites were chosen based on their proximity to interstates, major highways and public transportation.
Will there be an gap in pharmacy services?
Fort Belvoir Community Hospital will open new pharmacies in Dumfries and Fairfax as part of the transition to the new family health centers. Due to the logistics involved in the transition, patients may experience longer than usual wait times. We recommend patients prepare by receiving early refills from the existing clinics in Fairfax and Woodbridge.
Patients can continue to use the existing pharmacies up until the transition but the pharmacies will close on June 27 and will reopen in the new locations on July 2. To alleviate any gap in pharmacy services, patients have been advised to refill maintenance medications early (starting June 1).
Pharmacy hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The addresses for the new pharmacy locations are the same as the health center addresses shown above, and in the grey box at right.
Will there be a change in my healthcare providers?
We have made great efforts to ensure continuity of care, and the vast majority of healthcare providers are transitioning to our new health centers. We are a dedicated healthcare team focused on providing safe, quality and compassionate care to all of our patients.
What if I need to seek medical treatment, or need pharmacy services during the transition?
In addition to Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, other military treatment facilities within the geographic area include Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the Quantico clinic, Malcolm Grow Medical Facility, and Andrew Rader Clinic.
If patients require pharmacy services during the transition, we recommend contacting other military pharmacies in the area:
