The Army is giving Col. Dallas Homas an extra five months to command Madigan Army Medical Center, extending an assignment that was interrupted last year by an investigation into misdiagnoses of post-traumatic stress disorder at the hospital.
Homas will remain at the hospital through the end of the summer, the Army announced this week. He took command in March 2011 and assignments leading the hospital typically last two years.
This is wonderful news for Madigan Army Medical Center and all its beneficiaries, said Maj. Gen. Richard Thomas, Homas commander at the Armys Western Regional Medical Command. Col. Homas is a fine commander. He represents superbly the Army, the Army Medical Department and our region.
