Tinker AFB the Base is located in Oklahoma County in the southeastern city limits of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Base covers more than 5,000 acres and is adjacent to Midwest City to the north and Del City to the west. Oklahoma City is served by Interstate Highways 35, 40, and 44. The current medical clinic Buildings 5800, 5801, 5802, 5803, 5808, and 5810 was constructed in 1957 with a life expectancy of approximately 50 years. A construction project in 1978 more than doubled the size of the original first floor with additions wrapping the original structure on the west, south, and east. A project for three more additions was completed in the early 1990s with additions to the southwest comer, just east of the south wing of the original structure, and south of the warehouse. A Pharmacy Annex with a drive-up window was subsequently added to the north side of the facility in the early 2000s, and another small pharmacy expansion is currently under design. There have been no major additions or changes to the second or third floors from the original 1957 construction. The main building contains approximately 184,156 square feet ft, including the additions. This inpatient facility changed to an outpatient clinic in 1998. The TRICARE health facility Building 5803, is a 3,100 sq ft one-story structure that was built in 1995. The TRICARE facility is used for other clinic administrative functions such as insurance processing and work space for nurses. These functions will be moved to the existing clinic in February 2005 so Building 5803 can be used as swing space during on-going structural repair to Building 5801.
