Special Operations-qualified doctor takes command of 212th CSH

Miesau, Germany –Col. (Dr.) Richard A. Jordan, A Special Operations-qulified doctor, assumed command of the 212th Combat Support Hospital in a July 9 ceremony here.

The 212th is a fully deployable hospital unit that has sent medical teams to locations such as Romania, Bulgaria and Africa. Its members also provide medical care by serving at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center when not deployed or in training.

Jordan comes to the assignment from the Europe Regional Medical Command Headquarters. He has been that organization’s deputy commander since June 2008. While there, he made a number of television spots, appearing as the ERMC "Ask the Doc." Those spots aired as far away as Southwest Asia and the Pacific on the Pentagon Channel and other Armed Forces Radio and Television Service outlets. He answered questions from healthcare beneficiaries on a variety of topics, answering the most popular on air. Jordan intends to continue serving in that capacity from his new assignment.

Jordan follows Col. (Dr.) Brian T. Canfield, who has commanded the unit for the past two years and is headed for deployment to Southwest Asia.
