Warrior Transition Battalion Mission
Provide command and control, primary care and case management for Warriors in Transition to establish conditions for healing and promote the timely return to the force or transition to civilian life.
Warrior in Transition Mission
I am a Warrior in Transition. My job is to heal as I transition back to duty, or continue serving the nation as a Veteran in my community. This is not a status, but a mission. I will succeed in this mission because I am a Warrior and I am Army Strong.

About the Warrior Transition Battalion
The Warrior Transition Battalion at Joint Base Lewis-McChord is one of two battalions under the Madigan Healthcare System. The WTB provides outstanding medical care, advocacy, and leadership to Soldiers who are wounded, ill, or injured. Our goal is to ensure Warriors in Transition are treated with dignity, respect and compassion.
Our mission as a medical treatment facility is to provide command and control, primary care, and case management for Warriors; to establish conditions for healing and to promote the timely return to the force or successful transitions to civilian Veterans.
To be successful in this mission, we implemented the triad of care concept, ensuring that each Soldier's nurse case manager, primary care manager and squad leader meet and communicate on an official basis to ensure the best possible transition. We also work with each Soldier to establish comprehensive transition plans, allowing them to create their own transition goals resourced by the WTB.
Our innovative programs and comprehensive care continue to evolve to meet the physical, emotional, and intellectual health needs of our Soldiers of all components, whether they are active duty, Army National Guard or Army Reserve Soldiers. Our WTB staff is a diverse team of medical experts, social workers, leadership and more who work together to create a holistic healing environment for Soldiers.
Our community-based warrior transition unit allows Soldiers to live with their Families and to receive local health care in communities not near Army medical facilities. These Soldiers are still assigned to the WTB, and receive regular support from their unit in managing their comprehensive care plan and accessing additional resources.
We also share and partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other government agencies to enhance the care and service of Soldiers and Families both at the national and local level. At Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the WTB is involved with numerous community groups; these partnerships allow Soldiers and their Families additional fiscal, health, and outreach resources to enable them to heal.
