Navy Rear Adm. Tim Weber visited Naval Hospital Twentynine Palms at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in California earlier this month to observe big-initiative efforts as well as to meet with installation leadership to address Navy Medicine’s role in taking care of warfighters and their families during a pandemic.

Not wasting a minute, the Commander, Naval Medical Forces, Pacific, met with hospital leadership, enlisted sailors and subject-matter experts to gauge the performance of high-visibility initiatives and to solicit a ground-eye view on how the military treatment facility is rising to the challenge on multiple administrative fronts.

Weber was briefed on the implementation of MHS GENESIS, the new electronic health record, and the hospitals response to COVID-19; and meet with sailors and civilians to get their deck-plate view.

Weber congratulated hospital staffers for their recent highly successful Medical Inspector General’s inspection, in which only two findings out of 57 programs were recorded. He then met with the Commanding General of the Marine Air Ground Task Force Training Command/Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, Maj. Gen. William Jurney.

In addition, Weber toured the adult medical care clinic, where active-duty service members are treated. He also learned about the establishment of the acute respiratory clinic, a tent with diagnostic equipment to evaluate and isolate possible COVID-19 infections.

As Director, Medical Service Corps, Weber capped the day meeting with the command’s MSC officers.

“The visit has been fantastic,” Weber said. “We’re really seeing the ingenuity, collaboration and high morale in this command. We’re seeing sailors, whether in uniform, or our civilian shipmates, operating at the top of their game. I’m seeing great innovation in the establishment of the acute respiratory clinic and COVID-19 tents. We didn’t do that a year ago, but we figured it out. All skill sets are being used, and that’s good.”
