Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – Blanchfield Army Community Hospital will conduct annual required continuing medical education training for personnel Friday, April 19th, 2019 in conjunction with the Fort Campbell training holiday. BACH’s outpatient services, including outpatient pharmacies, will follow a holiday schedule. BACH Emergency Center, labor and delivery, inpatient services and supporting emergency services remain open 24/7 and will not be affected.

“The impact of our team using the post DONSA (Day of No Scheduled Activities) for staff training should be minimal as no outpatient appointments were scheduled that day. We ask our beneficiaries to anticipate a longer wait at the Town Center Pharmacy Friday as it will be the only BACH supported pharmacy operating that day,” said BACH commander Col. Anthony McQueen.
