Bassett Army Community Hospital
Fort Wainwright, AK 99703 (907) 361-5172
Bassett Army Community Hospital, the only Army Hospital in Alaska, is located at Fort Wainwright, Alaska. Fort Wainwright is adjacent to the City of Fairbanks in interior Alaska, some 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle. The installation originated as Ladd Army Air Base in 1940 and served during WWII as the primary transfer point for aircraft under the land-lease program with the Soviet Union. With the establishment of the United States Air Force as a separate service in 1947, the installation became Ladd Air Force Base.
The Air Force transferred Ladd Air Force Base to the Department of the Army in January 1961 and the installation was renamed in honor of General Jonathan M. Wainwright, the “Hero of Bataan”. It was not until July 1962, that the transition of Air Force activities led to the conversion of the hospital to US Army Hospital, Fort Wainwright. The hospital was designated a Class I medical activity under the command jurisdiction of US Army Medical Activity, Alaska.
