• Attention MEDDAC Beneficiaries! Effective July 1, Weed Army Community Hospital (WACH)’s after-hours building access will be at the Emergency Room from 7:30 p.m.–5:30 a.m. Please proceed to the Emergency Room entrance for care or any information during these hours. This will ensure the Military Treatment Facility (MTF) maintains a high OPSEC posture after-hours and also allows our patients have sufficient time for much needed rest/recuperation during their stay. Patients can reach out to Ms. Glynis Johnson at 760-383-5099 for any questions that you may have.
