The U.S. Army established Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) at major military treatment facilities (MTFs) located around the world. WTUs provide personalized support to wounded, ill and injured Soldiers who require at least six months of rehabilitative care and complex medical management, as well as mobilized Reserve Component Soldiers requiring definitive care.
A WTU closely resembles a “line” Army unit, with a professional cadre and integrated Army processes that builds on the Army’s strength of unit cohesion and teamwork so that wounded Soldiers can focus on healing to transition back to the Army or to civilian status. Within a WTU, wounded, ill and injured Soldiers work with their Triad of Care – primary care manager (normally a physician), nurse case manager, and squad leader – who coordinate their care with other clinical and non-clinical professionals.
Community Care Units (CCUs) provide command and medical management assistance to Soldiers as they navigate the Army’s medical treatment system to successfully reintegrate back into the force or transition from the Army. Soldiers whose medical situation allows may receive the same services at a CCU, a unit within the WTU, while recovering at home through the TRICARE network with the support of their Families and communities.
