Colonel Robert D. Peltzer, the medical group commander, and other army officials visited the hospital for this purpose last Friday.
Under the MoU, soldiers, civil servants and their families working at the Eight U.S. Army’s Air Force Base in the southwestern city will receive the medical services in all areas, including medical examination, diagnosis and treatment at the hospital.
The agreement also calls for maintaining a close cooperative system of emergency medical services and providing medical support in case of natural disasters, mass casualties, terrorist incidents and war situations.
“Mutual trust has become a basis between WUH and EUSA, similar to the long-standing trust and mutual development between our two countries,” WUH President & CEO Choi Doo-young said. “We will continue to have a close and strong relationship and build our future based on mutual trust and development.”
