The 108th Medical Group recently received an Excellent Rating from the Air Force Inspection Agency.
In addition, two of the group's sections came away from the inspection with perfect scores.
The Health Services Inspection (HSI) is conducted every three years and has a variety of purposes. The primary ones include assessing readiness, providing an independent assessment of medical care, evaluate and report on the effectiveness and the efficiency of medical management and identify any fraud, waste or abuse.
A number of recent personnel changes in the group provided some challenges for the unit, but through the hard work of the groups members and support from the wing, the 108th came out with a score of Excellent on the inspection.
Programs noted with special recognition by receiving perfect scores were Flight Medicine Management and Workplace surveillance.
The 108th Medical Group provides quality medical support for 1500 wing personnel while maintaining readiness for its diverse peacetime and wartime taskings.
