Fort Carson's Evans Army Community Hospital opened in 1986 and is a 78-bed facility consisting of over 400 examination and treatment rooms. Fort Carson is also home to a dental clinic.
Evans Army Community Hospital is named in honor of Spec. Donald Evans, Jr., a medic who earned the Medal of Honor for action in Vietnam. The EACH/Fort Carson Medical Department Activity's mission is to deliver on the promise and partnership of quality, safe and valued Warrior- and Family-centered care. The full-service hospital and its four Family Medicine Clinics have over 2,100 employees and serve an enrolled population of 59,000. In 2008, EACH/MEDDAC had over 3 million patient encounters including an average of over 2,800 outpatient encounters per day. To accommodate Fort Carson's expansion with the arrival of the complete 4th Infantry Division, the hospital is undergoing a major expansion and several renovation projects including a 153,000 square foot Soldier Family Care Center building and a new Women's Health/Labor & Delivery Center. The MEDDAC also has responsibility for Fort Carson's Warrior Transition Unit and Army elements in Pueblo, Colorado and Utah.
