It's All About Health

Welcome to the Regional Health Command - Atlantic (Provisional), 
RHC-A(P), the nation's premier military system for health. What is a system for health? At RHC-A(P), we are focused on our patients' health and wellness, which means we are as dedicated to preventing illness and injury as we are to healing. A system for health enables ready and resilient Soldiers, families and communities.

We maintain the readiness of America's fighting men and women through care that maintains, restores and improves their ability to deploy on a moment's notice anywhere in the world. And when our Soldiers deploy, we ensure that a ready medical force is ready to deploy with them, professionally trained and ready to provide world class casualty care. The Regional Health Command - Atlantic (Provisional), is working to build a healthier Army and healthier nation.
