Time is an important factor when emergency care is required.
Beneficiaries of U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart are reminded that the facility is not staffed or equipped as an emergency clinic and it does not provide an ambulance service.
A medical emergency is one in which life, limb or eyesight may be in immediate danger and time may be a critical factor. To avoid a delay in treatment, patients requiring emergency care should go to the nearest host nation facility or call for an ambulance. You can call the German ambulance service direct (civ. 112), but to guarantee an English speaker, call the U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart Military Police. On post, dial 114 or 116; off post, call civ. 0711-680-114/116. The MPs will contact the German ambulance service and a Host Nation Patient Liaison. If your emergency is on an installation, the MPs will also meet the ambulance at the gate and escort it onto the installation.
German first responders will triage and transport the patient to the nearest emergency room that can treat the injury or condition.
