ARLINGTON, Va. – The Army Recovery Care Program staff earned the Wolf Pack Award for exceptional teamwork during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. Richard R. Beauchemin, Chief of Staff, United States Army Medical Command and Chief, Army Medical Department Civilian Corps, presented the award on behalf of Army Surgeon General Lt. Gen. R. Scott Dingle and himself on Sept. 30.
The Chief of the AMEDD Civilian Corps and the Surgeon General created the Wolf Pack Award to recognize one team that demonstrates a focus on excellence every quarter.
“It’s well-earned,” Beauchemin said. “Your team is a team of teams.”
To win, a joint group of military and civilian team members must produce results with the potential for broad impact in support of Army Medicine through effective collaboration.
“This team did not take a knee while changing the overall program,” he said. “We are very proud of what you all do. You epitomize sustained excellence and Army Medicine.”
The honor recognizes that the ARCP is an essential component of both Army readiness and Army Medicine.
“There are days when someone else talks about your program, and it gives you the chance to step back and realize the impact you have on Soldiers and their families,” said Col. Curtis Douglass, Deputy Chief of Staff for the Army Recovery Care Program, U.S. Army Medical Command.
The Wolf Pack Award captured ARCP’s performance during one quarter of a yearlong period during which the program conducted a holistic review and developed a comprehensive reform and restructure plan. The team’s hard work resulted in a redesigned program that better serves Soldiers, their families and caregivers, and increases Army readiness.
This achievement was accomplished with the help and support of all 14 Soldier Recovery Units, which executed complex care management with unwavering dedication that ensured Soldiers received the care and resources they needed to recover and overcome.
The Army Warrior Care and Transition Program is now the Army Recovery Care Program. Although the name has changed, the mission remains the same: to provide quality complex case management to the Army's wounded, ill and injured Soldiers.
