Bassett Army Community Hospital (the only Army hospital in Alaska) is located at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. Fort Wainwright is adjacent to the city of Fairbanks in interior Alaska, about 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle.

Bassett, a 21-bed hospital, is the primary medical treatment facility for Soldiers, family members and retirees and their families. A number of civilian hospitals and civilian specialists augment the military facilities to provide complete medical care for personnel in Alaska. The hub of medical care for the more than 20,000 military beneficiaries north of the Alaska Range, Bassett Army Community Hospital serves personnel from Fort Wainwright, Fort Greely, Eielson Air Force Base, Clear Air Force Station and all other eligible beneficiaries.

Bassett also oversees the medical activities of Alaska’s other Army medical facilities, the Fort Richardson Troop Medical Clinic (TMC), and the recently opened Fort Greely Army Medical Home Health Clinic.
