During your time in Sigonella, you're going to need to see a doctor and dentist. Depending on the specialty services you might require, you may need to be referred off-installation for medical services.

PATIENT LIAISONS

Host-nation patient liaisons act as intermediaries between patients and doctors to help facilitate the best care possible. From assisting with the language barrier and insurance forms, to providing comfort to clients, patient liaisons can help you feel at ease in the medical surroundings.

Getting a patient liaison

The patient liaison program is available through TRICARE (at the hospital).  This program is open to all ID cardholders, including non-TRICARE members.

EMERGENCY CARE

The emergency room at the U.S. Naval Hospital Sigonella is always open. For emergency response, call 624-9111 or 095-86-9111.

Be prepared

  • For all emergencies—on or off base—always dial emergency dispatch at 095-86-1911.
  • Off-base health emergencies will be treated at an Italian local hospital with translation services provided by dispatch.
  • Always carry a list of your current medications, known allergies, as well as your insurance card, ID card and local currency.
