    Thank you, Team BAMC!

    BAMC has been working round the clock to take care of our patients and our community. As just a few examples:

    -- More than 11,500 patients have been screened and over 8,800 personnel have been tested as of 17 July through BAMC's drive-thru screening and testing operation, easing the burden on the city's overtaxed testing sites.

    -- Over 27,000 COVID-19 tests have been processed by DPALS. Lab techs have been running COVID tests for up to 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

    -- More than 89,500 vehicles were serviced and 162,000 prescriptions were dispensed at BAMC's curbside pharmacy in just over two months. An additional 113,500-plus prescriptions have been processed through BAMC's drop-off and pick-up in-house services since 1 June.

    -- While continuing to care for our active duty and military beneficiaries, BAMC is taking on additional trauma patients to ensure the region's trauma response remains unaffected by the pandemic.

    -- BAMC has doubled its extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, or ECMO, capability in order to care for our community's most critically ill COVID-19 patients, to include beneficiaries, veterans and civilian patients. ECMO is a heart-lung bypass system that circulates blood through an external artificial lung, oxygenates it, and delivers it back into the bloodstream.

    -- Virtual Health appointments increased from 16 percent of overall appointments in January 2020 to 52 percent in May 2020 in an effort to keep patients safe at home.
