– [Narrator] Welcome to the Blanchfield Army Community
Hospital at Fort Campbell. Here, exceptional health
care is provided by the men and women of the
101st Airborne Division and the 160th Special
Operations Aviation Regiment by a workforce of approximately
2000 military members, Department of the Army civilians, reservists, and contractors. We understand the vital
work you do for our nation, which is why our dedicated
medical professionals strive daily to fulfill
the hospital’s mission. – Patient safety is our
number one priority here, caring for the Soldier
and the family member. – Because we want the
interfaces between the patient and between our staff members
and our delivery system to be as safe as possible
so we take every opportunity that we can to remove
the risk so that we know what our outcome is gonna be. – We take multiple steps
in an effort to ensure that we have the correct patient, we have the correct site verification to ensure that we
accuracies with regard to determining which eye we’re going to do. – It’s very important for us to, when we get Soldiers that are injured, to help them recover
as quickly as possible and get them back out into
training and out into the fight. – We employ a lot of complementary and alternative modalities
when we treat Soldiers. We don’t want our first go-to thing to be prescribing medications. We employ yoga, meditation,
aroma therapy, acupuncture, we do auricular and full-body acupuncture, and any combination of those things. – We have Soldiers that have
to drive heavy equipment. We have Soldiers who rig parachutes. We have Soldiers who operate on aircraft. And those Soldiers need
to be able to receive pain services, but not
medication that’s gonna affect their ability to do their job. – This is really the future. – The people that work in the
facility have the experience to execute quality, excellent care. The care that’s provided is evidence-based and the command really
supports bringing on new and innovative treatments to provide our Soldiers and family
members and retirees. – Blanchfield is really a community among the providers and all the providers and different stock departments
that I work with here come to the facility
with the right attitude, which is we are here to serve
a very important community. – We invest in our facility, We have some of the best
quality of equipment and the things that we
use to take care of you is absolutely state of the art. – At your convenience,
you have the pharmacy, radiology lab, general
surgery, GI, dermatology, multiple other disciplines
within the hospital. – I feel that this
community is small enough to make you feel at home, but large enough that
you get the necessary scope and breadth of
services that you need for appropriate health care here. – [Narrator] The Blanchfield
