Kearny Surgeon Reaches Camp Cody On Inspection Trip

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Tags: — Michael Kromeke @ 2:27 pm

Lieutenant Colonel Fred W. Palmer, commanding the base hospital at Camp Kearny, California, arrived in Camp Cody Sunday, being the guest of Lieutenant Colonel Jacob N. Coffin, division surgeon. He is engaged in making a tour of inspection of the various base hospitals in the southern departments, in order to observe the methods in use as well as to consult the heads of each base hospital. Upon his return to Kearny he intends to adopt the best features, or such of them as may be applied to the California institution.

This inspection is in line with the policy of the surgeon general’s office to promote better understanding between the various units of the medical and sanitary corps, and to standardize the methods, while always seeking for improvement.

Before coming here, Colonel Palmer toured the camps at San Antonio and Houston, Texas. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Tuesday, May 14, 1918
