Celebrating 100 Years at Walter Reed
May 1, 2009 provided an exciting opportunity to celebrate the history and lasting legacy of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the heroes who served our nation and the many physicians and staff who have contributed so much to warrior care over the past 100 years. Established in 1909, Walter Reed has grown and evolved over time to meet the ever-changing needs of the wounded warriors and their families. More change is to come in 2011, as this institution shuts its doors at the current location and steps up to a new era in military health care in the National Capital Area--Joint Commands at the new Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at Bethesda and the Community Hospital at Ft. Belvoir.
The XIO team was proud to be a part of the Centennial Celebration and is looking forward to our continued support of the Walter Reed mission. Learn more about 100 Years at Walter Reed.
