MISSION:

The First Choice for High Quality and Innovative Medical Logistics Support and Training.

VISION:

Provide and Project Medical Logistics Support across the Full Spectrum of Military Healthcare Operations to EUCOM, AFRICOM, CENTCOM, and Department of State [CJCS-designated Theater Lead Agent for Medical Materiel (TLAMM) for EUCOM & AFRICOM].


USAMRMC is the medical logistician to the Army Medical Department. The execution organizations - U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency (USAMMA) and the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Center, Europe (USAMMCE) - provide direction and medical material across the full spectrum of health care missions worldwide.

They are responsible for identifying specific products for fielding, procuring those products, and delivery of the products to everyone from the aidman to the surgeon at Walter Reed.

They need to ensure that when the medical professional needs a product it is there. Additionally, they must maintain a stockpile at proper levels while also ensuring proper rotation of medical materials so that products do not go past their expiration date prior to use.

In addition, many medical products including drugs and vaccines must be kept at tightly controlled temperatures. Keeping products at a specified temperature may not seem difficult in medical facilities in CONUS, but the same has to happen when they are delivering drugs and medical products to field hospitals and forward surgical units in the Iraqi desert.
