The National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE)
The National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) is a Department of Defense organization working to advance the clinical care, diagnosis, research and education of military service members with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and psychological health (PH) conditions. NICoE provides diagnostic evaluations and treatment of complex TBI and PH conditions to promote physical, psychological and spiritual healing. This center would respond to the growing needs of those with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health (PH) concerns, and serve as a leader in TBI patient focused care and research throughout the MHS.
The primary patient population of the NiCoE is active duty service members with TBI and PH conditions who are not responding to conventional therapy. After being referred by their military health care provider and accepted into the treatment program, the service member goes to the NICoE for two to three weeks, where they will stay in a NICoE-dedicated Fisher House on the Bethesda campus. A spouse or other family member may stay with the service member during the time of treatment. Service members return to their duty station or referring military treatment facility upon the completion of their time at the NICoE with a personalized treatment plan aimed at helping them return to active duty.
