Company info

U.S. Army Medical Command
Website :

Company Profile
With the overseas contingency operations continuing, the spotlight justifiably is on the Army’s medics, evacuation units, surgical teams and field hospitals. Army Medicine is a seamless chain of care stretching back to fixed hospitals in Europe and the United States, where Soldiers receive state-of-the-art care. Field medical units are under the command of the combatant Commanders, because their movements and work must be coordinated with those of fighting forces. In contrast, all fixed hospitals (in the U.S. and outside the U.S.)are commanded by the MEDCOM. The challenges for Army Medicine are (1) How to provide medical leadership for field units while respecting combatant Commander’s "ownership" and (2) How to integrate the work of field and fixed units. Dual-hatted Surgeon/Commander The AMEDD's answer is to "dual-hat" the top Army healthcare provider as both the Army Surgeon General and the Commanding General (CG) of MEDCOM.
