FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) -

Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, Fort Hood's hospital, acquired a new leader Friday morning. 

"My name is Thompson, and I care for Phantom Warriors. I commanded Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, the heartbeat of Fort Hood, and I am proud to be part of one team with one purpose conserving the fighting strength," Col. Mark Thompson, the outgoing commander of Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, said. 

Col. Mark Thompson led Fort Hood's Medical Center for the past two years. 

"I cannot begin to tell you how much we have enjoyed our time here at CRDAMC. In the perpetual cycle, PCS cycle that is Army life, this place, more than any other, has seemed like home," Col. Thompson added.  

Now, it is home to Col. David Gibson and his family once again. 

"I was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, about 20 years ago, and after having been a part of III Corps, there's nothing like serving at Fort Hood, Texas. This community, the soldiers that are here, there's nothing like it," Col. David Gibson, the new commander of Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, said.  

Commander Gibson said he is looking forward to the opportunity to help improve Fort Hood's medical readiness, and...

"We're gonna look at high-quality and safe patient care, making sure that we give that exceptional patient experience, the future force and we will always take care of our soldiers for life, our DA civilians and other beneficiaries," Col. Gibson added.   

Col. Gibson is coming to Fort Hood after serving as Chief of Staff for the Army Medical Department Center and School, Health Readiness Center of Excellence in San Antonio.
