Out of respect for our patients’ wishes, we will not be providing any further updates to patient conditions. Additionally, patients and family members have declined media requests for interviews.
We have received numerous requests from community groups for patient visits. Those requests are being passed along to the military, the patients and their families. Due to the volume and our priority of providing patients the time they need for rest and healing, we will not be able to facilitate all requests. If you wish to pass along general well wishes, you can submit a message online and it will be delivered.
