Brooke Army Medical Center
Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, is proud to provide safe, quality care to our military service members, their families, veterans and civilian emergency patients as the most robust and productive healthcare organization within the Military Health System (MHS). Both inpatient and outpatient services are provided by approximately 8,500 staff members, including active duty military personnel from each of our uniformed services, Public Health personnel, federal civilians, contract employees, and volunteers.
At the hub of our medical center is the San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC). As the largest military hospital in our Nation, designed to care for up to 425 inpatients, SAMMC provides safe, quality, evidence-based care for our military and civilian patients. As the sole verified Level I Trauma Center within the Department of Defense (DoD), BAMC simultaneously provides emergency services during 80,000 Emergency Department visits annually and serves as the premier medical readiness training platform for both the Army and the Air Force.
BAMC providers also care for more than 4,000 patients each day during visits to its six separate outpatient clinics including: Westover Medical Home, CPT Jennifer M. Moreno Primary Care Clinic, McWethy Troop Medical Clinic, Taylor Burk Clinic at Camp Bullis, the Schertz Medical Home, and the Corpus Christi Occupational Health Clinic. Prominent on the hospital campus, and surrounded by four Fisher Houses, the four-story Center for the Intrepid (CFI) stands as a pre-eminent extremity injury rehabilitation center.
Forty of the hospital's beds are designated for the US Army Institute for Surgical Research (USAISR) Burn Center. The verified Burn Center serves alongside the Level I Trauma Center to provide emergency services for residents from 22 separate counties in South Texas.
As a proud partner within the San Antonio Military Health System (SAMHS), BAMC facilities provide comprehensive care for more than 250,000 military beneficiaries living throughout the area. BAMC and its Air Force partner, the 59th Medical Wing, including the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center, forged the SAMHS to optimize military medical resources in and around Joint Base San Antonio.
