Warrior Transition Unit
Updated On: 1/22/2013 7:58:40 AM
The Warrior Transition Unit is designed to meet the needs of Soldiers who were wounded, ill or injured in theater and/or require complex medical and case management through the Triad of Care (primary care manager, nurse case manager and squad leader). Warriors in Transition requiring less intensive medical management may remain with their parent unit.
Fort Sill’s WTU is located in Building 3709. For assistance, call (580) 558-4987 and (580) 558-2244.
The Army has established a local Ombudsman program intended to support the Warrior in Transition program. The local Ombudsman program is part of the Reynolds Army Community Hospital’s Patient Advocate Team and works directly for the Medical Command Medical Assistance Group.
The Ombudsman will serve as an advocate to resolve issues relating to Warriors in Transition Soldiers and their Family Members. Issues include health care, physical disability processing, Reserve Component medical retention issues, transition to the Veterans Administration, pay issues, etc. He or she will also assist with issues that come through the Army-wide Wounded Soldier and Family Hotline. In every case, the Ombudsman will attempt to link the Soldier or Family Member with the appropriate subject matter expert. The Reynolds Ombudsman can be reached by calling (580) 442-2140. read more...
