Army Medical Team at UAMS to help treat patients with COVID-19

Atkins also is the associate administrator of Patient Care Services and nursing director of Oncology, Solid Organ Transplant, Orthopaedic and Otolarynology units and Apheresis. “I make comments at our morning meetings and ask for any suggestions or thoughts. When I pause, it’s just crickets. We are just spent,” said Julie Atkins, RN, director of the assistant directors of nursing and the Resource Management Office. “That changed on Friday just as soon as we knew you were coming. At least, we knew you were coming here to help. We are super, super grateful. We would hug you all if we could hug.” UAMS Medical Center CEO, Steppe Mette, M.D., Sept. 13 formally welcomed the Army medical team to UAMS at the start of a news conference. Mette is also senior vice chancellor of UAMS Health.

Army medical teams were deployed earlier to hospitals in Louisiana, Mississippi and to another city in Alabama. Michelle Krause, M.D., MPH, recounted to the Army team how she and Jake Stover, UAMS chief administrative officer and associate vice chancellor for clinical finance, worked together in mid-August to apply to FEMA for help with staffing. They didn’t receive any response until Sept. 3. “This is the first time Department of Defense medical assets have deployed to support both Idaho and Arkansas during the pandemic,” said Lt. Gen. Laura J. Richardson, Army North commander. “We are proud to be called upon to support our local, state and federal partners there, and in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, in this whole-of-government response.”

According to a news release from the U.S. Army North (Fifth Army), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requested the deployment of about 60 military medical personnel in three, 20-person teams, each to one of three states — Arkansas, Alabama and Idaho.
