Brooke Army Medical Center


Located on JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, Brooke Army Medical Center is a jewel in the Army medical crown. In true Texas style, BAMC (commonly referred to as “BAM-see”) is typically accompanied by descriptors like largest and biggest in the military. Not always so big, BAMC started as a modest Post Hospital at Fort Sam Houston in 1879 and occupied a single floor in a small, wooden building. In 1886, the first hospital was constructed and the facility has exploded in size in the decades since.

Ten separate organizations fall under BAMC command, and at the center of it all is a sprawling hospital, San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC). This impressive facility is not only home to Department of Defense’s only Level 1 Trauma Center but is also its largest healthcare organization. Five satellite clinics provide specialty and primary care to the outer reaches of San Antonio. Some of medicine’s most innovative rehabilitative care is taking place at the impressive, four-story Center for the Intrepid located on the BAMC campus. The top three organizations that call BAMC home are the 959th Medical Group, the Warrior Transition Battalion, and Troop Command.

Those stationed at BAMC can seek housing at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston or most likely look for a home in the surrounding communities in San Antonio Proper or Northeast San Antonio. There is no base housing at BAMC, but there are several Wounded Warrior barracks, extended stay type hotels, and four Fisher Houses.
