While assigned to Warrior Transition Units (WTUs), wounded, injured or ill Soldiers have one mission – to heal. Regional Health Command – Atlantic’s seven WTUs and six Community-Care Units (CCUs) provide care, support and leadership through a Triad of Care, a dedicated team consisting of a primary care manager, a physician or physician’s assistant, a nurse case manager and a squad leader.
Each WTU is collocated with a military treatment facility (MTF.) These MTFs, in collaboration with the WTUs, apply all the lessons learned from more than a decade of war to help Soldiers return to their units, or to return to their communities as valued Army veterans.
Regional WTUs are located at Forts Benning and Stewart, Georgia, Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Fort Campbell, Kentucky and Fort Drum, New York. In the national capital area, which includes Washington, D.C., northern Virginia and southern Maryland, Soldiers assigned to the Warrior Transition Brigade-National Capital Region and the Fort Belvoir-Warrior Transition Battalion in Virginia receive their medical care at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Naval Support Activity - Bethesda, Maryland, or Fort Belvoir Community Hospital.
Since the formation of the first warrior transition brigade at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington, D.C., in 2007, RHC-A has provided medical care and support to more than 15,500 wounded, injured or ill Soldiers. The Army never leaves a fallen comrade behind, and RHC-A works diligently to help restore their health and continue serving their country or their community.
