FORT GORDON, Ga. (WFXG) - As a little girl, LTC Alison Murray wanted to be a doctor, specializing in pediatrics. That was until one day she had a conversation with her dad, that changed the course of her life and her history.

"He said Alison, I think nursing is actually more your jam," Murray said.  

So instead of going the traditional route of nursing school, she joined the Army. It took her all over the world and put her in some of the top roles at military hospitals.

Murray said, "I'm the Chief Medical Information Officer as well as the acting Assistant Deputy Commander for Nursing." 

Part of being a commander means process improvement. Which is what Murray is doing for Fort Gordon.

"Right now, I'm truly responsible for a lot of the inpatient services and care of our beneficiaries," Murray said.    

Services that include implementing MHS GENESIS or Military Health Systems GENESIS. The program has been implemented at military medical facilities nationwide, now it's coming to Eisenhower Army Medical Center.

"So we will be able to see all our beneficiaries regardless of where they are in the world," Murray said.
