Who we are
CEHS is an occupational and environmental medical clinic authorized by AI 0118 to provide occupational health and preventive medicine services for DOD Agency Heads. The clinic programs promote and maintain the physical and mental fitness of federal civilians and active duty personnel who occupy the Washington Headquarters Services administered facilities in the National Capital Region.
Who we serve
Emergent care is provided to ALL non-military employees (DoD federal civilians and contractors) of the Pentagon. Emergencies such as severe pain, bleeding, difficulty breathing are examples of emergent care. If there is such a situation, please call 911 (Pentagon Police) immediately who will dispatch the emergency response protocol. Also, AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators) are placed throughout Pentagon facilities. Please familiarize yourself with the AED closest to your location. A list of locations may be obtained from the WHS Safety office.
Urgent care is available to DoD civilian federal employees on the job injuries and illnesses. Advise or triage can be provided for non-occupational injuries and illnesses. Employee will be referred to their private medical physician for personal medical issues. Care will be provided to stabilize the employee prior to the employee seeking care from a private physician. Employees who are contractors are expected to go to their employer for urgent care, but the clinic will provide initial treatment for severe job injuries/illnesses.
