Brooke Army Medical Center

Mission: We protect the Nation by ensuring Total Force Readiness through innovative, high quality care and the development of elite healthcare professionals.

Vision: To be the pinnacle of military healthcare -- Anytime, Anywhere!

Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) serves as the largest and most robust military healthcare organization within the Department of Defense (DOD). Both inpatient and outpatient services are provided by approximately 8,500 staff members, including active duty military personnel from each of our uniformed services, federal civilian employees and contractors.

Our medical center provides safe, quality, evidence-based care for up to 483 military and civilian inpatients.

BAMC providers care for more than 4,000 patients each day during visits to its five 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.

BAMC facilities provide comprehensive care for more than 240,000 military beneficiaries living throughout the San Antonio metropolitan area.

Since 2001, BAMC has played a crucial role in the provision of care for combat casualties wounded in either Afghanistan or Iraq. As the sole verified Level I Trauma Center within the DOD, BAMC simultaneously provides emergency services during 80,000 emergency department visits annually and serves the premier medical readiness training platform for both the Army and the Air Force; care extends throughout the globe as military providers continue to deploy to combat zones throughout the world.

Forty of the hospital’s beds are designated for the US Army Institute for Surgical Research (USAISR) Burn Center. The Burn Center – verified jointly by the American Burn Association (ABA) and the ACS-COT – serves alongside the Level I Trauma Center to provide emergency services for residents from 22 separate counties in South Texas.

Prominent on the hospital campus, and surrounded by four Fisher Houses, the four-story Center for the Intrepid (CFI) stands as a preeminent extremity injury rehabilitation center. Dedicated in 2007, the CFI was designed to advance rehabilitation and recovery of many our most severely injured combat casualties. Monumental advances in prosthetic care for amputees and functional restoration for patients undergoing limb salvage are among the hallmarks of the CFI.

Scholarship in Action is witnessed daily throughout the medical campus as fellows, residents, and trainees at all levels of medical education and training receive mentorship from an integrated clinical faculty. Graduate medical education is implemented through the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium (SAUSHEC), responsible for overseeing more than 30 ACGME-approved programs.
