Hospital Access for Airmen - Transcript

Col. Jane Denton: In the Air Force, we are about taking care of our patients and giving them whatever it is that they need. We don't worry about making a profit. What we worry about is taking care of our patients to the best of our ability. They get the care they need at no cost.

Maj. Janice Shealey: It's open 24 hours, seven days a week. We have the emergency room where you can check in and be seen for urgent conditions. You're admitted directly from the emergency room. You have your queue care. You have the clinic area.

Col. Jane Denton: All of our facilities have family health care, pharmacy, laboratory, radiology, physical therapy, mental health. Wherever we deploy people, we have the facility there to take care of them.

Senior Airman Corey Handley: Typically, having a baby is very expensive. But having a baby on base saves us a lot of money, and the Air Force paid for everything that the baby needed, and my wife as well.

Maj. Janice Shealey: You can't beat the quality of care.

Col. Jane Denton: Our job is to take care of them, and we're going to do that, no matter what it takes for us to get that done.
