MEDICAL FACILITIES & SERVICES
The DeWitt Health Care Network
Fort Belvoir's DeWitt Army Community Hospital is the central facility of a comprehensive health care network serving active and retired military personnel and their families residing in Northern Virginia. The DeWitt Health Care Network is recognized as the primary care base for the Walter Reed Health Care System.
In addition to the 46-bed hospital, DeWitt operates four primary care clinics called family health centers. The Family Health Care Clinics of Fort Belvoir and Fort Myer are located on military installations. The Family Health Centers of Fairfax and Woodbridge are community-based.
The DeWitt Health Care Network is wellness oriented and patient focused. It serves more than 140,000 beneficiaries. Active-duty personnel, with their unit commander’s approval, can choose to enroll in TRICARE Prime at any military medical facility in the area. Service members are strongly encouraged to have all of their health care needs managed by the clinic where they are enrolled. Calling for a same-day appointment is the preferred method of receiving care for urgent medical conditions. Active duty members who cannot call ahead for a same-day appointment must sign in no later than 7:15 a.m., Monday through Friday.
Mental health services are co-located with each family health center. Outpatient mental health and access to the specialized mental health services in local military medical centers is one of the benefits available to military families in Northern Virginia. DeWitt is the designated site for Adolescent Partial Hospitalization, an innovative program designed for teens who do not need long-term residential treatment but who do require more intensive and structured care than outpatient therapy. Adult inpatient and partial programs are provided through Walter Reed Army Medical Center. National Naval Medical Center, in Bethesda, Md., provides adolescent inpatient services. Malcolm Grow Medical Center at Andrews Air Force Base offers substance abuse inpatient and partial hospitalization programs.
DeWitt hospital facilities include an intensive care unit, medical/surgical ward, labor and delivery, mother/baby ward, and emergency room. In addition to the main pharmacy, DeWitt operates a Pharmacy Refill Annex in Fort Belvoir's Main PX.
The sponsor is responsible for ensuring family members are enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System before seeking medical care at military facilities or through TRICARE. Enrollment is initiated through the ID Cards-DEERS Enrollment Office on Fort Belvoir, Bldg. 213. Patients must present a valid military ID card at all military medical facilities prior to receiving care. Individuals enrolled in a Uniformed Services Treatment Facility are not eligible for care at any military facility.

Each family health center offers primary care appointments on an appointment basis only (no walk-ins). Radiology, laboratory, allergy and immunization, and pharmacy services are also available in each clinic.

The National Capital Area (NCA) BRAC plan calls for merger of Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center and construction of integrated medical facilities and functions at Bethesda (North) and Fort Belvoir (South). There will be a world class, 345 bed medical center on Bethesda campus (Walter Reed National Military Medical Center), and a premier 120-bed robust community hospital on Fort Belvoir. The new construction consists of 870,000 square feet (three times the size of the current DeWitt facility) with expanded inpatient and outpatient services.
