National Intrepid Center of Excellence Offers ‘Streamlined Evaluative’ Brain Injury Treatment for Servicemen

HealthWalter Reed National Military Medical Center’s National Intrepid Center of Excellence seeks to provide a “streamlined evaluative pathway” to treat the traumatic brain injuries of military personnel and their families, DoD News reported Friday

In an interview with DoD writer Shannon Collins, NICoE Deputy Director Louis French said NICoE’s clinical and research operations aim to put the experience of TBI patients into the “larger picture of healthcare in the military.”

“People come in sometimes very hopeless, and to be able to turn that around and to let people see what it’s like to recover and what it’s like to think about the next 70 years of their lives, what they’re going to do, it’s very gratifying,” French added.

NICoE looks to offer a range of treatment options in one location which include a four-week intensive outpatient treatment program, one-week assessment track, ongoing outpatient care services, inpatient consultation as well as individual diagnostic and evaluative options, Collins wrote.
