Commanding Officer, Naval Health Clinic Quantico (NHCQ), relieved Capt. Thomas Craig, executive officer, Naval Health Clinic Quantico, Nov. 26.
Capt. Kathy Becker, commanding officer, NHCQ cited a loss of confidence in Craig’s ability to lead and identified command climate issues following
results of the annual command climate survey and a follow on command investigation.
Craig had been assigned as the executive officer since June 2013, and has been reassigned to the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery in Falls Church, Va. Patient safety and security were not adversely affected and were not a factor in the decision. No impact to the medical care at NHCQ is expected.
NHCQ is the National Capital Area’s largest clinic command and provided comprehensive healthcare services and 13,000 fleet training hours to 58 commands, fleet and contingency operations and beneficiary population of over 100,000 across two states and the District of Columbia.
