EL PASO, Texas -- The new William Beaumont Army Medical Center replacement hospital is being delayed again, according to the U.S. Army.

Officials with Beaumont, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Health Facility Planning Agency made the announcement Saturday.

The Army says a protest has been filed over a contact with the U.S. Government Accountability Office, and no work on the impacted system will be allowed for a period of up to 100 days while the protest is being resolved.

The contract in the protest involves the shelving and storage of medical, surgical and pharmaceutical supplies. 

The hospital, being built at Loop 375 and Spur 601 at East Fort Bliss, is now slated to open on March 28, 2021.

The new Beaumont replacement hospital has been plagued by delays and cost overruns over the years.

“Due to a contractual protest, our move into the new hospital has been delayed,” said Col. Michael S. Oshiki, commander of William Beaumont. “While any delay is one too many, our staff continues to work with the entire project team, and to train and prepare for the move until the official protest process is complete. WBAMC will continue to provide world-class care at the current facility until moving to the new hospital.”

The current hospital is located at 5005 N. Piedras.

      1. Steve on Resler so full of B.S. No skin off your fat hide nitwit. You are not on active duty or a retiree so you don’t benefit from the new hospital or have any military related benefits. Tricare sure is nice though. Private Steve the loser just like his psycho BFF.

  1. Dang hospital has taken like 5-7 yrs? Lol. Sucklebusters firm on the government tit. For what? To cater to the madmikes and gang faking all them military injuries. The “ouchy” boys. Fake ptsd mfers. Gravy train.

    1. Alberto Velarde is a paranoid schizophrenic. Multiple personalities that he actually carries on conversations with in this website. He used to do it on the Herald Post, until they banned him for his racist comments.

    1. It is good that I reside in your head 24/7. You’re angry because you got an other than honorable discharge from the Navy for drug use and homosexuality. You have no VA benefits, and are banned from military installations.

  2. Correction 11yrs!!!!! Lol. The gravy train!!!! Sob i could have probably built that SOB by myself in 11yrs. Lol. Maybe the PTSD fakers were hired to build it and they have had a setback. Lol. Mental illness is a SOB!
