Army Medicine in Alaska

Fort Wainwright

Our Headquarters is at Bassett Army Community Hospital located at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. This is where most of our 25,000 patients receive their medical care. Active duty soldiers, family members and retirees from all branches of federal service receive medical care here. In addition to Bassett ACH, we have Kamish Soldier Centered Medical Home, Behavioral Health and Public Health located on Fort Wainwright.


The soldiers at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson get their care at the JBER Army Medical Home. Family members and retirees in the area get their care from 673rd Hospital on the Air Force side of JBER.

Fort Greely

At Fort Greely, outside of Delta Junction is our newest and smallest clinic. The Greely Army Medical Clinic opened in 2016 and sees active duty soldiers, their family members, retirees and VA patients in the area. While remote, the clinic offers everything a clinic should offer, along with x-ray, hearing services, laboratory services and a pharmacy.
