A Legacy of Lessons Learned: Landstuhl Regional Medical Center During Wartime, 2001–2014

Abstract


A Legacy of Lessons Learned by Karen Hennessy is a mix of history and organizational practice focused on the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC), the largest US military medical facility in Europe. Before September 11, 2001, LRMC was a general care hospital for US military personnel and their families stationed in Europe. As troops were distributed to parts of the Middle East, Europe, and Africa in conflicts following September 11, 2001, LRMC developed into a premier trauma center caring for service members wounded in US military conflicts and then evacuated to LRMC. LRMC became a transition point for wounded and critically ill soldiers evacuated from their deployment, with approximately 20 percent of patients being returned to duty while many injured patients were transported on to facilities in the United States within 96 hours of arrival at LRMC.
