Public Health Activity-Rheinland-Pfalz

U.S. Army Public Health Activity Rheinland-Pfalz (PHA R-P) has been known by many names. The unit was originally known as Northern Europe Veterinary Detachment (NEVD). It was activated on 18 January 1995 as a result of the post-Cold War drawdown of U.S. Forces in Europe and merged the Frankfurt-based 110th Medical Detachment (VS) and Veterinary Detachment Europe, headquartered in Giessen, Germany. NEVD provided Veterinary Service support to the military communities of Wiesbaden, Hanau, Giessen, and Darmstadt in Germany, the United Kingdom, Belgium and Iceland: of these communities, only Wiesbaden, Belgium and the U.K. remain.

In 2007-2008, the Veterinary Service support was restructured in Europe. As a result, NEVD was re-designed Northern Europe District Veterinary Command (NEUDVC), incorporating personnel and missions previously belonging to NEVD (to include the 21st, 79th, and 72nd Medical Detachments and the 64th Medical Detachment’s community missions). On 1 October 2010 the NEUDVC was activated provisionally as a subordinate command of the U.S. Army Public Health Command Region-Europe (USAPHCR-E) in Landstuhl, Germany. With the merger of the U.S. Army Veterinary Command and the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion & Preventive Medicine, the size of the district increases to approximately 100 military and 90 civilian personnel. Its mission scope also greatly expanded.

The unit continues its Title X Veterinary Service support to all military communities in Germany and Belgium, encompassing sanitary audits of commercial food establishments and provision of food safety/defense and animal medicine, Industrial Hygiene, and Occupational Health missions. To support its mission, the Activity operates eight Veterinary Treatment Facilities (VTFs) in Germany, one VTF in Belgium, and the Veterinary Medical Center Europe – the Army’s premier, forward-deployed Role IV medical and surgical center for Military Working Dogs. On 1 October 2016, the unit was redesignated as Public Health Activity Rheinland-Pfalz.

Mission: Provide comprehensive public health and veterinary medical care in order to enable the readiness and conserve the fighting strength of those we serve.

Vision: We are a premier team of Soldier and Civilian professionals – led by caring and competent leaders; supported by resilient Families – dedicated to our mission and our people; ready to provide first class, timely, and interoperable public health and veterinary medical care in a complex operational environment.
