66th Medical Squadron restructuring
In an effort to enhance the 66th Air Base Group’s medical readiness posture, while still maintaining committed to patient centered healthcare, the 66th Medical Squadron will be realigning provider empanelments. Although this restructure may drive primary care manager change, personnel can expect the same quality care from your patient centered medical home. This restructure will occur in two phases. The first restructuring phase will be completed by Dec. 31 and the second restructuring phase will be completed next summer. 

For further information, contact the group practice manager at 781-225-6402 with any questions regarding this realignment.


Interested in submitting a news article?
Public Affairs is always looking for news and information directly related to the Hanscom Air Force Base mission and the men and women assigned here. Typical stories include significant events, program milestones or unique experiences.

Because the Public Affairs Office needs to follow specific style guidelines and formats, and the fact that explaining Hanscom’s complex acquisition mission to a lay audience can be challenging, it’s usually better to work with PA directly on articles.
