National Rehabilitation Hospital Team to Work with US Army to Improve Rehab Care for Wounded Soldiers
Date:6/13/2008

Early Detection of Brain Injury Is Key

WASHINGTON, June 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A team of professionals from National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) will fly to Germany on Saturday to work with the US Army's Europe Regional Medical Command (ERMC), in assessing their current rehabilitation practices. They will also make recommendations for improving the quality and delivery of care given to injured soldiers and other military personnel in need of rehabilitation services. The ERMC operates 15 ambulatory care centers in Germany which are the initial treatment sites for injured soldiers from Iraq. These ambulatory centers not only diagnose and provide treatment, but they determine the location of ongoing care for those soldiers wounded overseas.

"NRH has a long history of working with the US Military," notes NRH President and CEO Edward A. Eckenhoff. "We are proud to share more than two decades of outpatient rehabilitation expertise with the Army's ambulatory centers in Germany, especially as they are critical to the care of those injured in Iraq."

The Army's contract with NRH is in response to a determination by the Office of the Surgeon General that the current rehabilitative care delivery systems may not be adequately prepared to sustain the high volume of war casualties and the recovery required to ensure that members of the military are able to return to duty or separate and continue to lead productive lives.

Dr. Michael Yochelson, head of NRH's Brain Injury Program says there is a special need for early detection and treatment of brain injuries coming out of the Iraq conflict. "Current estimates show that approximately 18 to 20 percent of deployed service members sustain a traumatic brain injury. We know that the majority of these patients have not received a formal medical evaluation to assess for a brain injury or to determine the service member's needs as a result."

During the team's two week stay in Germany, they
