New, state-of-the-art medical clinic opens aboard Camp Lejeune

Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune has opened the doors to another new, state-of-the-art clinic for service members.

Marine Centered Medical Home Wallace Creek serves 8,800 Marines and Sailors with 2nd Marine Division and II Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group.

“MCMH Wallace Creek not only gives dedicated medical spaces with brand, new medical equipment to our Division and MIG counterparts, but also provides our Marines and Sailors in those units the opportunity to be provided team-based care,” said Navy Commander Heather Kirk, director for branch clinics. “Along with the space and equipment are civilian nurse and clerk staff to provide continuity to the patient population.”

Wallace Creek offers primary care, physical therapy, radiology, dental and other services. The clinic began seeing patients on October 31 but a formal ribbon cutting was held on Tuesday.

An update to the clinic aboard Marine Corps Air Station New River is expected next year and updates to MCMH French Creek are scheduled for 2024.
