With the transition of management of Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center from Army Medicine to the Defense Health Agency scheduled to go fully into effect by Oct. 1, troops and their families will see some advantages when it comes to handling their personal health care, according to the director of DHA.

U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Raquel Bono, DHA director, visited the Army hospital on Monday to talk about the transition and what it means for the service members, retirees and their families who receive their care from the Darnall system.
