The Brian D. Allgood Ambulatory Clinic was ceremonially opened during a ribbon-cutting event Oct. 7, during a morning ceremony in front of the new clinic.

This Military Construction Project began as a ‘clinic addition’ to Keller Army Community Hospital.

The ground-breaking ceremony for this project occurred on March 15, 2012, under the command of then Hospital Commander, Col. Beverly Land.

In May 2014, Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen, Jr., Superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy, announced, by memorandum, that the Museum, Historical and Memorialization Committee voted in the affirmative, in December 2013, and he approved the recommendation to name the new clinic after Col. Brian Allgood, USMA Class of 1982 and commander of Keller Hospital from 2002-04.

The $31.4 million project adds more than 51,000 gross square feet to Medical Command West Point, as it houses Primary Care, Orthopedics/Podiatry, Physical Therapy, Optometry, TRICARE services center, staff and administration support.

The design facilitates the consolidation, corrections of space inequities and interdepartmental adjacencies, and is overall a boon to patients’ access to care.

The clinic addition supports the future flexibility of the Keller Medical Campus by providing the transition space and feasibility of a high-priority, overall hospital renewal; and creates a modernized ambulatory environment for the provision of ‘World Class Healthcare’ at West Point, the jewel of the United States Army and home of the U.S. Military Academy.
