USAMMA has three stateside Medical Maintenance Operations Divisions (MMOD), including:

Each MMOD location also provides medical maintenance support for its region's National Guard units.
The highest trained equipment experts from each MMOD also rotationally deploy as part of a team called the Forward Repair Activity-Medical (FRA-M). The FRA-M travels around the globe to provide expert-level training and support to unit-level biomedical equipment specialists.
Additionally, USAMMA provides medical logistics support for several Department of Army and Office of The Surgeon General (OTSG) readiness programs. These programs include the acquisition, storage, distribution and transfer of prepositioned stocks located ashore and afloat, as well as medical chemical defense packages and short shelf life pharmaceuticals and other materiel. As part of the force projection strategy, these programs contribute to the Army's ability to rapidly deploy decisive power worldwide. Both the Army and OTSG have established specific programs to support contingency operations. The programs are designed to work together to meet the needs of deploying units and include:
Army Prepositioned Stock (APS): 
  • Brigade/Unit Sets
