Shutters Up at Walter Reed Army Medical Center

Washington, D. C’s Walter Reed Army Medical Center has put up the shutters after transferring the remaining 18 patients to Bethesda’s National Naval Medical Center.

National Naval Medical Center has now been renamed as Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

NCR Medical Joint Task Force Commander John Mateczun appreciated the efforts of hospitals which fulfilled the task in substantial way, as moving of the patients from one unit to another was a intricate task.

Calling it “the largest and most complex series of moves and relocations that we have ever had within the military health system”, Mateczun stated that the budge was initiated keeping in mind the future prospects of military care.

Medical authorities stated that their troops have many a times shifted many patients from different places during the relief and disaster missions. So, they have been accustomed to such situations.

Shifting of the last patient took place at 9:10 a. m. EST, prior to the Hurricane Irene which has deeply affected the area. The staff of the two medical units completed the transition task efficiently even in the terrible stormy conditions which portrays the ability of military professionals to carry out work in difficult circumstances.
