A generation is statistically pegged at 25.5 years so it's safe to say that a generation has passed since Capt. Jasmine Torrence was first at Eisenhower Army Medical Center.
Torrence, EAMC's new chief of supply chain management in Logistics, was born 29 years ago at EAMC when the hospital still offered labor and delivery services.
Torrence's father was in the Signal Corps at Fort Gordon when it was time for his third of four children to be born.
Although Torrence's mother has passed away, her father retired to the Augusta area after tours at Fort Hood, Texas; Sacramento, Calif.; and Korea. He still seeks care at EAMC.
"His care here has been great," said his daughter. "The nurses and staff have all treated him well."
Torrence grew up in the Augusta area, attending elementary, middle and high school. She had her wisdom teeth removed at Eisenhower.
She is a graduate of Alabama A&M University in Huntsville with a degree in sociology. While there she was in the ROTC and was the Distinguished Military Graduate.
Torrence comes to EAMC from Fort Hood and is happy to be back in the area, near her father and childhood friends.
It makes me feel good to be back here to work and to contribute to EAMC's mission of care, she said.
When asked about her treatment at EAMC 29 years ago, she gives a sideways look and says "Uh ... great."
