Welcome to the Walter Reed Society

Founded in 1996 to benefit Walter Reed Army Medical Center and its educational, patient, treatment, and research activities, the Walter Reed Society now serves the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) at Bethesda. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered in the District of Columbia (EIN 52-1961196), the Society invites all friends of WRNMMC to join and help support the patients, family members, and staff at this institution in the spirit of Walter Reed, the man and his legacy of medical excellence and service to our Nation’s Finest.

In 2020 the Society's Board of Directors voted to expand its mission to include other military medical facilities in the National Capitol Region while retaining its primary focus on WRNMMC at Bethesda. Learn more »
