About Us

The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is one of the nation’s largest and most renowned military medical centers. Recently dubbed “The Nations’ Medical Center”, WRNMMC represents the joining of the “Best of the Best” in military medicine when National Naval Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center came together in September of 2011, to form Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as decreed by the Base Realignment and Closure law of 2005.

WRNMMC is comprised of nearly 8,500 dedicated staff members who make it their daily mission to achieve the vision and mission of our medical center. That vision is to serve military families and our nation’s active duty, returning war heroes, veterans and our Nation’s leaders.

We are committed to operational readiness; outstanding customer service; maintaining excellent graduate medical and dental education and research; and always delivering world-class health care within an integrated system. Those who come though our doors, come to heal, to stay healthy, to help others, to teach the next generation, to practice quality medicine, and take part in cutting-edge clinical research.

Today, while we take pride our rich history, WRNMMC is moving toward a new horizon in health care – one that offers synergy and revolutionary collaboration.
