Three civilian employees were placed on administrative duty from the on-post hospital at Fort Gordon, Georgia, in the midst of an investigation, an Army spokesman confirmed to Army Times on Friday.

The staffers are suspected of misconduct and behavior in violation of Army and Defense Department policies, Eisenhower Army Medical Center spokesman Scott Speaks said in a statement.

“We cannot provide any additional information than what has already been released due to the current investigation,” Speaks added.

The Army declined to confirm how they were made aware of the employees’ potential misconduct or the nature of the allegations against them.
