Medical, Health and Social Services Committee

Overview

An assessment of the local and regional health care and social service systems on and off the military facilities will be required to determine if they will be able to meet the increased demand, in areas such as hospitals, urgent care centers, medical, dental, mental health, family counseling, substance abuse programs, domestic violence programs, childcare and other social services. Deficiencies and needed increases in services will be identified and an action plan should be developed to address those deficiencies. Another related issue to examine is the availability of physicians who will accept TRI-CARE as payment. VA services (current and projected need) will also be evaluated.

Committee Tasks

  • Identify current service levels and capacities based on current population (hospitals, urgent care centers, medical, dental, mental health, family counseling, substance abuse programs, domestic violence programs, and other social services).
  • Identify projected need based on projected population increases (hospitals, urgent care centers, medical, dental, mental health, family counseling, substance abuse programs, domestic violence programs, and other social services).
  • Note shortfalls and make recommendations to resolve (hospitals, urgent care centers, medical, dental, mental health, family counseling, substance abuse programs, domestic violence programs, and other social services).
  • Identify areas of possible regional cooperation in providing the needed health and social services.
  • Assess current childcare situation. This includes, but is not limited to: number of providers, number of slots, cost, hours of operation, and services (infant, Pre-K, after hours, special needs children, transportation).
  • Assess projected childcare needs. This includes, but is not limited to: number of providers, number of slots, cost, hours of operation, and services (infant, Pre-K, after hours, special needs children, transportation).
  • Evaluate the existing Veterans Administration services and the projected need for VA services with the projected population increases.
  • Note the shortfalls and make recommendations to resolve.

Committee Chairperson: Dr. Margaret Merrick
