It is a pleasure to welcome you to Fort Gordon and to the Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center (DDEAMC).
The Medical Center is a modern fourteen-story health care facility overlooking Fort Gordon and the city of Augusta, Ga. Our mission at Fort Gordon is to provide inpatient and outpatient care to eligible personnel in our geographic area of responsibility and to provide care for the patients received from overseas commands.
Augusta and Fort Gordon are located in a pleasant and picturesque area of the Deep South. Facilities for the outdoorsman are available in the on-post and off-post woods and lakes. In addition, Fort Gordon has an excellent recreation area on the large Strom Thurmond Reservoir, twenty-five miles to the north. Libraries, movies, and craft shops for the hobbyists are all available on post, as well as a large post exchange and commissary, churches, a golf course and the impressive Gordon Club.
Augusta is a growing community with a metropolitan population of approximately 575,898. It has numerous downtown and suburban shopping areas. In addition to the many industries located here, Augusta is also the home of two colleges, Georgia Regents University and Paine College with which we enjoy an excellent relationship.
The city’s cultural programs include symphonies, ballet, theater and many others. Augusta is located halfway between coastal resorts and the Smokey Mountains, and within easy driving distance of Atlanta, the home of three professional sports teams; football, baseball, and basketball. As you probably know, Augusta is famous for the Masters Golf Tournament held each year in April.
Family Housing on post is somewhat limited. If you have dependants and contemplate entering into a rental or lease agreement for private housing in this area, you must first report to the Housing Directorate, Building 33601, Fort Gordon.
