ISC Fort Campbell provides TBI and brain health care to DOD beneficiaries utilizing the Intrepid Network’s holistic, patient-centered interdisciplinary model of care.

Critical to this model is a co-located team at each site which expedites diagnostic evaluations and delivers a collaborative individualized treatment plan.
Clinical programs offered by ISC Fort Campbell include:
- Acute Concussion Clinic
Patients must be evaluated by another healthcare provider first to ensure there are no emergent symptoms that need immediate attention. Patients cannot self-refer to the ACC. The goals of the program are to manage and decrease the patient's post-concussive symptoms and to educate the patient and their family on best rehabilitative steps to return the patient to pre-concussive functioning.
- Intensive Outpatient Program
The ISC Fort Campbell provides integrated, multi-and inter-disciplinary care for service members who have sustained a concussion. The team works together with the service member, his/her family, and his/her command to develop a treatment plan to return the service member to the highest level of function at work, home, and within the community. Our clinical team utilizes an interdisciplinary team approach to help each patient by equipping them with the information, knowledge, and skills necessary to manage TBI symptoms.
