509th Medical Group ceremony stands up dual healthcare model for Airmen, families
Airmen of the 509th Medical Group stand at attention during the unit's reorganization ceremony Aug. 14, 2019, at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo. The ceremony officially introduced the activation of the 509th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron and the 509th Healthcare Operations Squadron. Under the new Air Force Medical Reform model, dedicated provider care teams will be aligned to an Operational Medical Readiness Squadron primarily focused on proactively treating active-duty Airmen and improving their availability to support the warfighting mission. Care for non-active duty patients, primarily the families of service members and military retirees, will be handled by separate provider teams aligned to a Health Care Operations Squadron.
