Abstract : The 1995 Base Closure and Realignment Commission legislation required Kimbrough Army Community Hospital to close its inpatient services and realign as an outpatient clinic. This further implied that Kimbrough must close its emergency room. I will investigate various methods for the delivery of ambulance services. The stated research problem is: Determine from various courses of action (COAs) the best and most appropriate method of providing ambulance service for Kimbrough Ambulatory Care Clinic and the Fort George G. Meade workforce and residential population. To develop various and appropriate COAs, I conducted indepth research on the Emergency Medical Systems within the DoD, U.S. Army, U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD), and the state of Maryland.
