    Womack Army Medical Center Commander Col. John Melton talks to Dr. Abhik Biswas, medical director of inpatient pediatrics at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center on July 19. The WAMC leadership team visited the Cape Fear Valley pediatric ward to celebrate a successful collaborative partnership in pediatrics. The new legislative changes in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 afforded opportunities to establish military-civilian integrated health systems. In the spring of 2018, Fort Bragg made the decision to move toward consolidating Womack’s pediatric inpatient service with the Cape Fear Valley Medical Center due to a low beneficiary demand for pediatric inpatient service. As in any profession, the more you do, the more reliable and effective you are in what you do. In December 2018, Womack signed an agreement for Army physicians to rotate at Cape Fear Valley. With access to more complex patient volume, this local military-civilian partnership sustains higher levels of Army physician readiness over longer periods of time.
