JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
Beneficiaries are experiencing some delays in services due to the high levels of COVID transmission in the community and the San Antonio Market’s transition to MHS GENESIS on Jan. 22.
As a result of the increased demand, the CAMO (Consult and Appointment Management Office) and Nurse Advice lines are currently experiencing a high call volume leading to longer than normal wait times.
“We absolutely understand our patients’ frustration and are working diligently to provide them safe, quality, timely care during this busy time,” said Army Col. (Dr.) Timothy Switaj, San Antonio Market assistant director for clinical operations.
“We want to ensure our patients know they have alternate options for seeking care to help avoid delays in service,” he added.
