The National Capital Region NCR Base Realignment and Closure BRAC Health Systems Advisory Subcommittee HSAS of the Defense Health Board DHB was convened in May 2008 to advise the Department of Defense DoD on the planned integration of military medical facilities in the NCR service area. In response to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 NDAA 2009, Public Law110-417 Appendix A, in September 2008, the NCR BRAC HSAS was further charged to review the design and construction plans for the new Walter Reed National Military Medical Center WRNMMC and the new Fort Belvoir Community Hospital FBCH to determine if they were being designed and constructed to be world-class medical facilities and, if not, what should be done to remedy any perceived deficiencies. This report responds to this latter charge.
