DoD cuts ribbon on centralized medical headquarters
Wednesday - 9/19/2012, 10:11am EDT
Officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday for the new Defense Health Headquarters in Virginia.
They said placing the top Army, Navy and Air Force medical staff in one building would help keep military medicine relevant, strong and effective.
Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Jonathan Woodson said nothing can replace face-to-face conversation. He said the Defense Department needs more "enterprise solutions" to mental and physical health.
The consolidation was ordered seven years ago by lawmakers when they passed the Base Realignment and Closure Act.
