The 519th Hospital Center is a U.S. Army military field hospital. A hospital center is transportable by aircraft and truck and is normally delivered to the operational environment in cargo containers. Once transported, the hospital center is assembled by the staff into a "tent" hospital to treat patients. Depending upon the operational environment (e.g., battlefield), a hospital center might also treat civilians and wounded enemy soldiers. The hospital center is the successor to the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH). The Soldiers of the 519th Hospital Center have a distinguished history of selfless sacrifice to fellow Soldiers and to our nation, saving thousands of lives on countless battlefields. The 519th Hospital Center is the most decorated tactical hospital in the active Army. Assigned to the 30th Medical Brigade, they have earned the motto, "Skilled and Resolute!"
