The German Construction Administration, in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Europe District and the U.S. Defense Health Agency have signed the contract for Rhine Ordnance Barracks Medical Center Replacement (ROBMCR) project with Züblin-Gilbane Germany Joint Venture. Once complete the 985,000-square-foot hospital will include nine operating rooms, 120 exam rooms, 68 beds, and a surge capacity of 25 additional beds at Weilerbach, Germany.
The estimated investment amount for the project is US$969 million. The completed ROBMCR project will serve as the only forward-station evacuation and treatment center for injured U.S. service members, civilians, and contractors serving in Central & Southwest Asia, Europe, and Africa. The facility, located strategically in southwest Germany, will provide medical support to an estimated 200,000 military personnel across seven combat stations and employ approximately 2,500 people. Construction is slated for completion in 2027.
