The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center
(WRNMMC) is to be a tri-service military medical center located on the Bethesda, Maryland
, USA campus of the present National Naval Medical Center
by September 2011.
Merger and consolidation plan
In accordance with the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure
recommendations, an Office of Integration (OI) was formed in November 2005 to oversee the merger of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center
(WRAMC) and the National Naval Medical Center (NNMC). That merged facility will be staffed by U.S. Air Force, Army, and Navy medical personnel and will be the core of an integrated military medicine system in the National Capital Region
(NCR). What in 2005 were three medical centers, a small community hospital, and 19 clinics offering medical care to military beneficiaries in the NCR will become, with oversight of the OI, a single tri-service medical center, a large tri-service hospital in Northern Virginia, and 20 area clinics.
took place on July 3, 2008 with President George W. Bush
