Initiated and supported by then Congressman John M. McHugh, FDRHPO originated from a Department of Defense 721 pilot program for healthcare delivery. The mission of FDRHPO is to analyze the existing healthcare system available to Fort Drum Soldiers, their Families, and the surrounding civilian community, identify gaps and then leverage additional medical resources. To enhance and expand healthcare resources for the growing Fort Drum community, FDRHPO created partnerships with regional healthcare institutions. The result is a strengthened, more adaptive Healthcare System that is still in use today.
