This facility is staffed daily by either our Medical Officer or our Physicians Assistant and two Health Services Technicians. The Health Services Technicians are available during normal working hours at (281) 464-4611 and they can be contacted through the air station duty officer at (713) 578-3000 in case of emergency.
