PYEOUNGTAEK, SOUTH KOREA -- The 65th Medical Brigade command team supported the U.S. Army Installation Management Commanding General, Lt. Gen. Kenneth Dahl during a tour of the new Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital Facility at U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Jan. 5, 2018.

BAACH commander, Col. Ericka Clarkson spoke with the general on the current and future medical capability of the facility and some of the current strategic initiatives to ensure that Soldiers and family members consistently have access and receive the best care possible, especially during the transition of troops from various locations across the peninsula to Area III.

Dahl and his command team were impressed with the current progress and capabilities of the new hospital facility scheduled for completion in the fall.

BAACH will be a new 418,572 square foot, 68‐bed hospital and ambulatory care center providing medical services to 65,000 active duty personnel, family members and other eligible beneficiaries at USAG Humphreys.

Facilities include integrated green space and healing garden features which meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver accreditation standards.
