New Army Hospital's TBI Treatment Unit Now in Operation

It combines medical, psychological, educational, and physical resources in a centralized clinic, according to an Army News Service report.

A state-of-the-art Traumatic Brain Injury Department opened Jan. 27 inside the Defense Department's new $1.03 billion hospital at Fort Belvoir, Va., Joshua L. Wick reported for the Army News Service. The unit at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital consolidates the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center TBI services among itself and Walter Reed-Bethesda in Maryland, combining medical, psychological, educational, and physical resources in a centralized clinic, according to his report.

"I cannot imagine a more wonderful setting for us to be able to launch this program and certainly have it serve as a springboard as we move forward with comprehensive behavioral health and physiological health for our servicemembers," Army Col. Susan Annicelli, the hospital's commander.

Wick's report quoted Dr. Heechin Chae, chief of the department, as saying the department "prides itself on the outstanding clinical care and teamwork that allows the team to craft and coordinate treatment plans for each patient. Our TBI clinic can manage the full spectrum of acquired brain injury, from mild to severe."
