Wilford Hall ER closed, UCC handles only minor medical issues

Senior Airman Brittany Prichett takes Airman 1st Class Ronald Frost's blood pressure July 12 in the new Urgent Care Center at Wilford Hall Medical Center, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas. The UCC replaced the Wilford Hall emergency room which closed July 1, 2011. The UCC treats acute minor illnesses and injuries and is not equipped or staffed to handle serious cases. Patients with more severe issues should seek emergency medical care at Brooke Army Medical Center on Ft. Sam Houston or at the nearest emergency room. (U.S. Air Force Photo/SSgt Josie Walck)
