Walter Reed National Military Medical Center
The new director of Walter Reed National Military will be a familiar face to many at the “Flagship of Military Medicine.”
Navy Capt. Mark A. Kobelja takes the helm of WRNMMC during a change of authority ceremony June 30 at 10 a.m. in Memorial Auditorium. He will assume the directorship from Army Col. Michael S. Heimall, who is retiring after more than 30 years in uniform. The colonel has served as the WRNMMC director since May 2016. Prior to that, he was WRNMMC’s chief of staff from August to November 2015, and interim WRNMMC director from November 2015 to January 2016.
