Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Soldiers from the Fort Campbell – based 531st Hospital Center, seven subordinate units and Blanchfield Army Community Hospital participated in a field exercise recently, allowing them to test Army Medicine’s new field hospital platform.

In 2017, the Army’s combat support hospitals began transitioning to a new, more modular 32-bed field hospital that can be expanded incrementally to 148 beds, with a suite of medical and dental services to choose from. Its design gives medical planners more flexibility in sending only the modules and personnel it needs for the mission.

Mark Cenon, all from the 41st Medical Detachment on Fort Campbell treat a simulated casualty in the new Intensive Care Unit of 586th Field Hospital during a training exercise on post. The two-week field exercise was the first for the 531st Hospital Center and seven of its direct reporting units since transitioning from the 86th Combat Support Hospital to the Army's new field hospital platform.
