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.
