South Texas Veterans Health Care System transport eight spinal cord injury patients
Ambulances transporting eight spinal cord injury patients from Audie Murphy Veterans Affairs Medical Center, South Texas Veterans Health Care System, San Antonio, Texas, arrive at Joint Base San Antonio-Kelly Airfield, Texas, on Tuesday, July 14, 2020. The STVHCS successfully transferred the individuals to the VA North Texas HCS' (leave SCI) Center, Dallas, Texas, via a flight onboard a U.S. Air Force C-130 aircraft. Two days' prior to the patients' movement, the VA requested the Department of Defense's assistance. As the DOD's single manager for global patient movement, U.S. Transportation Command executes this critical mission through the U.S. Air Force's aeromedical evacuation system. Members of USTRANSCOM's Command Surgeon Directorate coordinated, organized, and implemented the patients' movement within the Lone Star State. The transfer of the eight veterans enabled the STVHCS to expand its COVID-19 capacity to support other VA medical facilities and community hospitals in San Antonio and surrounding locales.
