The dedicated health care
professionals of the United States Army Medical Department Activity (USA MEDDAC)
at Fort Knox, Kentucky, are working together to provide our patients top quality
health care and preventive services throughout six states (Kentucky, Indiana,
Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin). We are proud of our health care
system and proud to serve our nation's Soldiers and Families.
The hub of our activity is the Ireland Army Community
Hospital (IACH) located at Fort Knox which serves the Fort Knox community with

Family members, civilians and Retirees.
Members of the MEDDAC team also staff a troop medical

laboratory, and a medical SRP site. We also have an Optical Fabrication
Laboratory that makes glasses and mask inserts for most of the Soldiers in the
Eastern United States. Our Optical Fabrication Laboratory supports Force Health
