Urgent Care

Urgent Care services treat non-life-threatening health issues that require immediate attention, such as sprains, the flu, colds, and other common illnesses.

If you’re unsure about whether you need urgent care, contact the Military Health System Nurse Advice Line to speak to a registered nurse. Visit for web chat and video chat, or dial 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273).

Emergency Care

If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical situation (including mental health emergencies), call 112 immediately. Emergency care services treat life-threatening medical issues such as threats to your life, limbs, sight, or safety.

  • For on base medical emergencies call +49(0) 02451634444 or go to the NATO CLINIC or ER. Please do not call US Clinic or walk-in if an emergency.
