CAL MED also operates the Major General William H. Gourley VA-DoD Outpatient Clinic in Marina, Calif., which opened in June 2017.

It is only the second fully integrated VA-DoD facility in the nation.
MHS GENESIS: Your Electronic Health Record at CAL MED
On Sept. 7, 2019, The California Medical Detachment successfully transitioned to the Department of Defense's new unified electronic health record, MHS GENESIS. CAL MED is in the first wave of military treatment facilities (MTF), along with Travis and Mountain Home Air Force Bases and Naval Air Station Lemoore, to transition to the new health record. Once fully deployed across all military treatment facilities, MHS GENESIS will have the ability to enable all military branches to use a single electronic health record. At that point, patients' records will be accessible at any MTF, regardless of branch or location. Learn more about MHS GENESIS
