The ribbon cutting ceremony and facility tour Monday of the renovated Troop Medical Clinic fulfills part of a shared vision at Kenner Army Health Clinic, said Col. Linda L. Pierson, KAHC commander.

The unique location of the TMC on B Avenue, next to the 23rd Quartermaster Brigade Headquarters, will provide medical care to advanced individual training Soldiers that best supports the brigade training operations tempo.

“Today, I am pleased that the time for recognizing the fulfilment of our vision has arrived,” said Pierson. “The community’s support at every step of the renovation process is the reason we are here today.”

During the ceremony, Pierson also complemented the expert staff of professionals working at the TMC for “their tremendous energy and generosity of spirit” during the renovation process.

“With the renovation of the Troop Medical Clinic complete, Kenner can and will continue to be an integral part of the Fort Lee health care system by providing quality care for the student population and the Army’s newest Soldiers.”

Chaplain (Maj.) James Schaefer gave the invocation and blessing of the facility. A quintet from the 392nd Army Band also performed during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, members of the Fort Lee community and senior leaders toured the facility.
