RACH Gone, As We Know It

Fort Sill is losing a lot of services soon in just one building!  Reynolds Army Community Hospital will soon be transformed into Reynolds Army Health Clinic.  later this year, RACH will no longer offer in house surgeries, in-patient services, maternal child care and deliveries, These services will be outsourced to the greater TRICARE network.  This network includes Comanche County Memorial Hospital, Southwestern Medical Center, and Duncan Regional Hospital. The Urgent Care Clinic will also see limited hours, as they will be open from 0700-2300. The dining facility in RACH will also close down. 

All of these changes are expected to take place on or before 30 SEPT 2016.  These changes are mainly due to the draw down of the Army and sequestration.
