Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my birth certificate?

LRMC does not issue birth certificates, but we do issue a report of live birth that the U.S. Consulate uses to issue a Report of Live Birth, or FS-240.

The FS-240 is valid in all U.S. States and Territories as the equivalent of a birth certificate.  To obtain a copy, follow the instructions at the U.S. Department of State at:

The American consulate is the only agency abroad that can issue an American Birth Certificate and Passport.  However, your Regional Personnel Center can assist and must collect, verify and forward all requests to the American Consulate.

If you have a referral from a Host Nation Provider and would like to be seen at LRMC, please contact us at or by phone at DSN 590-4830/Commercial 06371-9464-4830.

For more background information, please see our release below:
Increased opportunities for surgical procedures are currently available at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center for retirees, DOD civilian employees, and family members.

"When the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan were busy, our focus was treating Wounded Warriors arriving at LRMC from theater," said Col. (Dr.) Brian Sonka, Chief of the Division of Surgery at LRMC.  "Now that the flow of patients has thankfully slowed down from the Middle East, Landstuhl wants to allow greater access to care to our beneficiaries and the opportunity to keep our surgeons gainfully employed."

The surgical specialties at LRMC include orthopedic surgery, ophthalmology, general surgery, neurosurgery, spine surgery, plastic surgery, urology, obstetrics & gynecology, ear/nose/throat surgery, oral surgery, occupational and physical therapy.
“There is a lot of capability at Landstuhl and our surgeons have years of experience dealing with complex trauma and surgical cases from the Middle East, Africa and Eurasia,” said Capt. Rob Davis, Chief of LRMC Managed Care.

“We want to capitalize on maintaining these skill sets and providing a high level of care to the retirees and DoD Civilians in the Kaiserslautern Military Community that support the Active Duty population and their families every day.”

The change is especially significant for DOD civilian employees and retirees whose German doctor refers them to a surgical specialist.  In most cases, Dr. Sonka said that retirees and DoD Civilians can be seen at LRMC for surgical consultation unless the patient has a problem that requires a specialty or capability not available at LRMC.  Other specialties such as dermatology, endocrinology, rheumatology and gastroenterology would be determined on a case-by-case basis.

How does this work?  How do I access LRMC if I am seeing a Host Nation Provider?

If a retiree or DoD Civilian is seeing a Host Nation Provider for primary care and has a specialty care referral, they can either call the LRMC TRICARE Office at DSN 590-4830/Commercial 06371-9464-4830 and ask for Referral Management or they can bring their referral to the LRMC TRICARE Office in person in Bldg. 3744 (near the AAFES Gas Station) at LRMC. 

The LRMC Referral Management team at the TRICARE Office will work with the clinics and/or surgeons at LRMC and facilitate the care if appropriate.  The LRMC Referral Management team can take referrals in German as well.  There is no need to have them translated before contacting the LRMC TRICARE Office.

Patient Status Updates for Journalists

Patient safety and privacy are top priorities so we strictly follow HIPAA and Privacy Act laws regarding the release of patient information.

Following a request for patient status that includes the patient’s full name, we can confirm if the patient is here, provide a one work patient status and their location within the hospital. Patients also have the right to ask that their information not be shared.

We use standard language acceptable under HIPAA laws and American Hospital Association guidelines to describe patient conditions. They are:

  • Undetermined - Patient is awaiting physician and/or assessment.
  • Good - Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious and comfortable. Indicators are excellent.
  • Fair - Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious, but may be uncomfortable. Indicators are favorable.
  • Serious - Vital signs may be unstable and not within normal limits. Patient is acutely ill. Indicators are questionable.
  • Critical - Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits. Patient may be unconscious. Indicators are unfavorable.
  • Treated and Released – This could mean the patient was sent home or to another facility.
  • Confirming patient deaths – We will report or confirm a patient’s death only after signed consent from next of kin.
