You can find out more about CSC (Convoy Supply Center) Scania at Global Security

Camp Scania is home to a free clinic run by the 1st Battalion, 108th Armor Regiment, 48th Brigade Combat Team. The clinic, which operates three days a week, has become widely known as a premier location for the treatment of burn injuries, and some patients travel up to 75 miles to visit the small, trailer-housed aid center in southern Iraq. In many cases, Iraqi hospitals lack the supply of painkillers and antibiotics and other equipment that the clinic offers.
The video link was sent to me by J. Ogershok. I posted something he wrote in December of 2006 at Free Will.

This clinic is now run by the 3-73 CAV and has been since June 07. They will be leaving this summer as part of the troop withdrawals. I'm not certain the clinic will stay open, but I would check before sending things because this information is old.

The guy who sent me the info (J. Ogershok) is a medical guy with Global Security. The info is up to date as to the need.

The clinic is manned in part by Global Security people. There will be continuity.
