Changes to Hours of Central Appointment Line Operation
The Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital Central Appointment Line will be
changing their hours of operation beginning 18 May 2015 to 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
By closing an hour earlier, agents can be shifted to earlier in the day when
call volume is the heaviest. This will decrease wait times during peak hours
and hopefully increase patient satisfaction with this aspect of service by
alleviating long wait times and improve the booking process. The main call
center receives calls from across the Peninsula. Therefore this change in
hours will affect everyone. Central Appointments can be reached at DSN
737-2273 (CARE) or commercially at 050-3337-2273.
