JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-Lackland, Texas --

The 59th Medical Wing celebrated the opening of the new Reid Health Services Center facility with a ribbon cutting ceremony Sept. 13 on Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas.

The new two-story clinic includes 19 departments such as medical processing, a pharmacy, clinical labs, and radiology. Personnel from the 559th Medical Group will serve approximately 86,000 patients per year. 

 “It incorporates functions of four buildings into one,” said Col. Rebecca Blackwell, 559th MDG commander. “[This] improves the opportunity for teamwork by simplifying communication and increasing patient centeredness with a one-stop service.”

According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the new clinic was sited in a vacant lot adjacent to the existing clinic and located on the south edge of the new Basic Military Training Complex, allowing easy pedestrian access by the trainees.

Upon completion of the construction, the clinic staff transitioned into the new facility over two weekends, avoiding disruption to the medical services.

In addition to supporting basic and technical training members, the 559th MDG delivers primary and operational healthcare services to more than 130 units on JBSA-Lackland, including students from around the world studying at the Defense Language Institute English Language Center and the Inter-American Air Forces Academy.

“We are honored to re-dedicate the new Reid Health Services Center to Senior Master Sgt. David B. Reid as it now bears the original bronze plaque from the 1994 dedication,” said Blackwell.

Originally built in 1967, the Reid Health Services Center was dedicated in 1994 to Reid, who served as a First Sergeant for the 20th Medical Group at Shaw Air Force Base. He lost his life in a C-130 crash in 1985 while en route to Honduras where he and his team were going to care for troops at a temporary location.
