Red River Hospital will provide transportation from any military installation or any other place that the military requests (e.g. another hospital or emergency room) at no cost to the military, Tricare, or the service member. Red River Hospital will send an escort (depending on the patient’s needs) to meet the service member and their command to ensure a safe travel plan back to Red River Hospital. Upon discharge from treatment, the same rules apply for meeting the command and returning the service member. The time frame in which a service member can be flown in is usually within 24 hours, depending on flight availability from the nearest airport.
The time frame in which a service member can be picked up by automobile is usually fairly quick if the trip is within eight hours from Wichita Falls. From the time of the call for admission, the team can be on the road within 30 minutes.
