Transportation Services to Red River Hospital
Red River Hospital will provide transportation from any Military installation and or any place that the Military chooses for us to pick up (Ex. 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 needs of the services member) two escorts to meet the service member and their command to ensure a safe travel plan back to Red River Hospital. Upon discharge the same rules apply for meeting the command and returning the service member.
The time frame to have a service member flown in is usually 24 hours depending on the flights from the nearest airport.
The time frame to have a service member picked up by automobile is usually fairly quick if the trip is a drivable distance. (less then 9 hours from Wichita Falls, TX is consider drivable) From the time of the call for admission the team can be on the road within 30 minutes.
