King of Prussia, PA (Oct. 3, 2022) — The Universal Health Services Patriot Support Programs provide treatment for active duty military, veterans and their families. Programs and services are specifically designed to address the effects of combat stress, post-traumatic stress, depression, substance use disorder and other behavioral health issues.
We announce the expansion of the Patriot Support Programs Advisory Board, welcoming new member Major General (Ret) Jerry L. Fenwick, U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard. General Fenwick retired in 2021 after 35 years of service in both the U.S. Army and Air Force. His final assignment was as Director, Office of the Joint Surgeon and Surgeon General of the National Guard, Washington, D.C. His career as an Emergency Medicine Physician has included multiple deployments with a focus on austere medicine and patient movement. Following retirement, Dr. Fenwick became the Chief Medical Officer for Disaster and International Medicine for Longview Technology, Herndon, VA. He is also CEO of Marshall Creek Medical Consulting and Medical Director of 417 Healthcare, Springfield, MO.
“During 2021, we served more than 18,000 active-duty military personnel, veterans and family members across the Behavioral Health division, including through our designated Patriot Support Programs,” said Matt Peterson, Executive Vice President and President, Behavioral Health Division. “With a focused and dedicated Advisory Board, further expanded to include the wisdom and talents of Major General (Ret) Fenwick, we will continue to enhance our offerings to ensure military personnel receive the support and care they need to succeed. I have personally served with General Fenwick and can speak to his relentless commitment to saving lives.”

UHS Patriot Support Programs were established to support the U.S. Department of Defense and Veterans Administration. The strain of multiple deployments and separations wears greatly on the bodies, minds and spirits of service members, veterans and their families. It is not uncommon for active duty service members and veterans to struggle with depression, post-traumatic stress (PTS), addiction or other behavioral health issues. We offer military-specific behavioral health services, designed to best support and address the needs of this patient population. We provide support for all Branches of the Military Services, their families and our Veterans. Learn more: https://patriotsupportprograms.com/
