Sgt. Bergdahl was returned to the U.S. military on May 31 after almost five years in captivity and arrived at LRMC a day later. The full focus of the LRMC medical team is to provide the necessary medical care and a safe environment for his complete recovery. However, there is no predetermined timeline for Sgt. Bergdahl’s recovery process at LRMC. The duration will continue to be based on the pace of his healing and reintegration process.
Specific details about his medical condition are not releasable in accordance with patient privacy laws as defined in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
During this phase of reintegration, Sgt. Bergdahl is receiving more complete medical exams. An inherent and critical part of the reintegration process is a decompression period that has been established to maximize returnee health and welfare.
Upon completion of his care in Germany, Sgt. Bergdahl will be transported for continued medical care in the United States at San Antonio Military Medical Center in Texas.
