Navy fires 12th Commanding Officer in 2012
Captain Lisa Raimondo, Commanding Officer, Naval Health Clinic Patuxent River, Md., was fired today following an inspector general’s investigation and administrative reviews of her command.
Rear. Admiral Alton Stocks, commander of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Bethesda, Md., and Navy Medicine National Capital Area on June 29 relieved Capt. Lisa Raimondo of command due to “a loss of confidence in the commander’s ability to command due to a significant lack of leadership and integrity that eroded good order and discipline in the command.” No other details were provided other than the statement that the high quality of medical care at the clinic was not degraded in any way.
These actions are part of the Navy surgeon general’s continuing a crackdown on poor leadership in the medical community. The command's Command Master Chief was also fired.
