Brig. Gen. Dennis Doyle, Commanding General for Pacific Regional Medical Command and Tripler Army Medical Center provided remarks during the ceremony and reflected upon the accomplishments of the outgoing commander.

"For the past two years, Col. Mary Krueger has distinguished herself through the incredible task of leading this complex organization to the heights of great success recognized and celebrated by senior leaders across the MEDCOM. During her time in command, SBHC led the way in growing and marketing the Patient-Centered Medical Home and Soldier-Centered Medical Home organizational structure. During a time of rapid change, she garnered support from our line leaders for new organizational and cultural practices in military health care, and championed the System for Health concept that is critical to maintaining readiness in a smaller and more resource constrained Army."

Doyle also welcomed Eberhardt and his family as he assumes responsibility for the command. "His credentials within the Medical Service Corps and AMEDD are impressive. From his days as a MEDEVAC pilot at the 101st, to his most recent position as G3 at 18th Medical Command, Pete's depth and breadth of experience in health care postures him for great success," said Doyle.

The Schofield Barracks Health Clinic has a critical role of not only provides daily health care for the Warfighters and families in Hawaii but also spearheads the effort to maintain medically ready and deployable troops on island.
