GROWTH OF ARMY MEDICAL CENTER
Major Gen. Shelley U. Marietta, commanding general of the Army Medical Center, recently stated that there was no truth in the rumor that the Forest Glen section of Walter Reed Hospital is to be transformed into an operative section of this hospital. Forest Glen is actually being further developed for the benefit of personnel sent there for recuperation after operations. Buildings now being erected there provide for the expansion of this feature of physical rehabilitation. However, General Marietta said that the branch at Beltsville, Md., used for patients most advanced toward rehabilitation, is to be abandoned, and patients who would normally be sent there will be sent to convalescent camps throughout the United States.
