Col. Jeffrey B. Clark has been tapped to replace Brig. Gen. Nadja Y. West as commanding general of the Europe Regional Medical Command and command surgeon for U.S. Army Europe.

Clark, who has been nominated for promotion to brigadier general, was the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center commander.  The change of command ceremony is scheduled for May 8 at 10 a.m. at the Patton Barracks Gymnasium in Heidelberg.

West, who has commanded ERMC since May 2010, has been selected to become the Assistant Surgeon General for Force Sustainment in the Falls Church, Va., office of the Army Surgeon General.

Clark is a physician who has been deployed to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm; Kosovo; New Orleans to assist with the Hurricane Katrina relief operation; and to Iraq.  In addition to Landstuhl RMC, he has commanded medical units at the battalion and brigade level.
