US Naval Hospital Guam change of command


The commanding officer of US Naval Hospital Guam (USNH Guam), Captain Jeannie Comlish, is scheduled to relinquish command to Captain Dan Cornwell in a change of command ceremony schedule to take place in the atrium of USNH Guam on June 30th at 10am.

Captain Comlish took command of USNH Guam on June 27, 2014. Under her command, USNH Guam achieved the highest operational dental readiness in Navy Medicine. She directed the medical development plan for Guam’s Marine Corps’ buildup to include design and services input for two new medical clinics. Her leadership and collaboration with Guam Medical Hospital Authority and Guam Regional Medical City throughout her tour as commanding officer resulted in the creation of the Guam Healthcare Coalition. Captain Comlish is scheduled to report to Defense Health Agency in Washington, D.C. next month.

Captain Dan Cornwell will become the commanding officer of USNH Guam after serving as the commanding officer of Field Medical Training Battalion-West, Camp Pendleton, CA. Prior to Camp Pendleton, Captain Cornwell was the Executive Officer at Naval Health Clinic Hawaii.
