    SAN DIEGO – Capt. Kim Davis, Naval Medical Center San Diego’s (NMCSD) commanding officer, received the San Diego Military Advisory Council’s (SDMAC) 2021 Nancy Dix Achievement Award on behalf of the hospital during their 14th Annual Achievement Awards ceremony at the Admiral Kidd Catering and Conference Center Aug. 12.
    In a statement about the award, Rear Adm. Mark Balmert (ret.), SDMAC’s president and CEO, said “Throughout the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, the team at [NMCSD] provided medical support to our community in addition to their increased demands for care of active duty service members. The [NMCSD] staff conducted COVID testing, administered vaccinations and treated patients in both the military and civilian communities. This increased care included deploying more than 1,000 staff members in support of nearly a dozen communities in our region and across the nation including Los Angeles, Oklahoma, Texas and the [U.S.] Virgin Islands. The men and women at [NMCSD] exhibited professionalism and a spirit of volunteerism that are a great credit upon the command, and their efforts are reflective of individuals who have gone ‘above and beyond in providing extraordinary contributions to the San Diego community.”
    Davis, who assumed command of NMCSD May 26 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, accepted the award on behalf of the Sailors and staff members assigned to the hospital.
    “It is an honor for SDMAC to recognize NMCSD’s valiant and ongoing efforts against COVID-19, not just here locally, but also across the nation and globe. I proudly accept this recognition on behalf on Cmdr. Jason Rice, NMCSD's director of Public Health, and our 6,000 dedicated military and civilian medical professionals,” said Davis. “Home to the world’s largest fleet and United States Marine Corps concentration, our success was measured in keeping aviation teams flying, ships at sea, warfighters in the game and our recruit pipeline open. NMCSD is proud to be part of San Diego’s robust community represented this evening by non-government organizations, civic leaders, defense industry partners, operational leaders and many more; all committed to helping bring out the best San Diego has to offer.”
    According to SDMAC, the organization “was founded in 2004 as a 501 (c) 6 non-profit organization with a mission to support and promote the mutual business and other interests of the military, their quality of life, and the defense community in the San Diego area. Since then, SDMAC has become increasingly prominent in advancing the partnership and communication between the military, elected and appointed officials, and the business community while simultaneously working to enhance recognition of the military's many economic and social contributions to the San Diego area.”
    NMCSD’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. NMCSD employs more than 6,000 active duty military personnel, civilians and contractors in Southern California to provide patients with world-class care anytime, anywhere.
