FORT HOOD, Texas – Surgical services at the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center have been temporarily reduced to support current COVID response operations 23 Aug.

CRDAMC has limited surgical services and will only conduct surgeries that support select readiness cases, time-sensitive procedures that would affect a patients long term health if delayed, and urgent or emergent procedures.

A large number of elective procedures will be temporarily delayed until CRDAMC can reopen to full capacity. The Surgical Services team is actively assessing the ability to reopen capacity on a daily basis and will reschedule all cases as soon as possible.
