    SAN DIEGO – A change of command ceremony was held to welcome Capt. Kim Davis as Naval Medical Center San Diego (NMCSD)/Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command (NMRTC) San Diego’s new commanding officer May 26.
    The ceremony took place at the hospital for a limited number of guests, and was also live-streamed on the command’s Facebook page for those unable to attend in person.
    Following the Parade of Colors, the National Anthem, played by the Marine Band San Diego, and an invocation by Cmdr. Randall Ekstrom, a chaplain assigned to NMRTC San Diego, Rear Adm. Timothy Weber, Commander, Naval Medical Forces Pacific, gave his remarks.
    “I’m honored to preside over this ceremony as Capt. Morrison turns over the helm to Capt. Davis,” said Weber.
    “In your short time as commanding officer, you embodied integrity, accountability, initiative and toughness,” said Weber to Morrison. “I’m indebted to your steady hand at the helm, and NMRTC San Diego will maintain its steady course.”
    Capt. Devin Morrison, NMRTC San Diego’s executive officer, assumed the role of commanding officer for approximately two months before Davis’ arrival.
    Davis praised Sailors and staff at NMCSD/NMRTC San Diego, as they’ve continued medical care throughout a pandemic and stood ready to deploy. Davis also shared her day one guidance.
    “I encourage each and every one of you to take the helm,” said Davis. “Your engagement is essential to health, education, leadership and modernization. I approach this opportunity to take command with great humility and gratitude.”
    The ceremony concluded with Morrison resuming his position as executive officer, as well as a cake-cutting ceremony in the cafeteria.

    NMCSD’s number one priority is providing the safest, highest quality patient-centered medical care for our veterans, service members and their families. NMCSD is committed to operational readiness, outstanding customer service and always delivering world-class health care.

    NMRTC’s mission is to prepare service members to deploy in support of operational forces, deliver high quality healthcare services and shape the future of military medicine through education, training and research.
    NMRTC serves as the single point of contact in support of installation and operational commanders, providing medical information, support and over medical cognizance of the active duty and reserve force.
