Officials: Army hospital chief relieved of command

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Two defense officials say the chief of an Army medical center has been relieved of his command because of problems with patient care.

The officials say the commander was replaced Tuesday at Womack Army Medical Center at Fort Bragg, and three deputies were suspended.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

One official says the discipline comes after two deaths this month of patients in their 20s and problems with infection control at the facility that were pointed out by a hospital accreditation group.

The Pentagon announced late Tuesday that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered a 90-day review of the entire military health care system.
