🏥As one of the Army's most state-of-the-art and technically advanced medical centers, Madigan Army Medical Center, located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, Wash., is one of only three designated Level Two trauma centers within the U.S. Medical Command.
The hospital was named for Col. Patrick S. Madigan, known as “The Father of Army Neuropsychiatry,” and who was the assistant to the Surgeon General of the United States Army from 1940 to 1943.
💉Since its opening in 1944, the center has a full spectrum of specialty and subspecialty services for adult and pediatric patients to including Developmental Pediatrics, Hematology and Oncology, and Radiation Therapy.
👩🏼⚕️Recently, the hospital's Andersen Simulation Center, which helps train thousands of doctors, nurses and medics each year, received a three-year accreditation from the American College of Surgeons, becoming the only Defense Department medical educational institution to attain that status. And Madigan's simulation center is one of only 21 surgical simulation centers in the U.S. to achieve a Level One status, the highest for a center of surgical education excellence.
🥼The Graduate Medical Education (GME) office oversees the training of 35 intern, resident and fellowship programs in addition to being a rotation site for the Uniformed Services University (USU), Health Professional Scholarship Programs (HPSP) and various medical universities around the nation. In addition, the GME office verifies graduate medical education training from Madigan Army Medical Center, Silas B. Hays Army Community Hospital and Letterman Army Medical Center.
