FORT BLISS - Officials at Fort Bliss have opened the Soldier Readiness and Resiliency Center at 60 Doniphan on West Bliss.

The 78,000-sf facility centralizes all the medical and administrative processes that soldiers go through when they go off to combat and then again when they return. Previously, these functions were scattered at two or three locations around Fort Bliss.

The new building can process 500 to 600 troops a day and can surge up to 850 for short bursts.

The center is in a building that originally opened in 1954 as a guided missile school. The building underwent extensive renovations during the past year.

A new building couldn't have been constructed to house the center until about 2025.
