New hospital set to open in spring 2016

The opening of the new Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center at the beginning of April 2016 will not only signal the transformation of the Fort Hood skyline, but the continued transformation of CRDAMC into the Army's Premier Readiness Platform.

"Our mission is to provide quality, safe, patient-centered care every day," said Col. Mark Thompson, hospital commander. "We do great work at the current facility, but the new one gives us a great opportunity to work in an updated environment that only stands to benefit the Fort Hood Soldiers, Family members and retirees we serve.

"It's a win-win for the community. It will allow us to practice 21st-century medicine in a 21st-century facility. Our medical personnel get to deliver care in a technology rich environment, while patients get to receive care in an environment that promotes healing and well-being," Thompson added.

At almost 1 million square feet, the new hospital will have three parking garages offering more than 5,000 spaces for patients, visitors and staff. The clinic towers surround the main hospital, making the medical campus far more accessible. As a certified LEED facility the 98-bed, six-story hospital sets the stage for new levels of care for beneficiaries.
