HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The 66th Medical Squadron Preventative Medicine Flight recently relocated to better serve beneficiaries.

Bioenvironmental Engineering, Public Health, Health Promotions, and Civilian Health Promotion Services are now all co-located in Building 1609.

Maj. Stephanie Anderson, 66 MDS Preventative Medicine Flight commander, said the clinic’s plan to optimize facilities and resources has been in the works for some time.

“This consolidation allows for better collaboration between our teams,” said Anderson. “The timing is also working out well with our transition to MHS GENESIS, because we can update our processes with the new system.”

Flight leaders said that the same services are available, but they encourage members who engage with the teams for deployments, permanent changes of station moves, or temporary duty to follow 66 MDS checklists closely

“Public Health’s audiometric testing is the only service that remains in Building 1900,” said Tech. Sgt. Andrew Dailey, 66 MDS Preventative Medicine Flight chief.

Dailey said the Preventative Medicine Flight will host a grand opening and open house at Building 1609 on May 4.

“We want to give our community a chance to see the new facility and get familiar with the lay out, but also to bring awareness to the services provided throughout our flight,” he said.

Additional information will be released prior to the grand opening.
