Video: Life at the Center for the Intrepid

Really nice video story about The Center for the Intrepid at Fort Sam Houston (Brooke Army Medical Center) in Texas, a one-stop-shop rehab facility for wounded warriors, from the creation of prosthetic limbs to physio-therapy. Through the collaboration of a multi-disciplinary team, they provide state-of-the-art amputee care, assisting the patients as they return to the highest levels of physical, psychological and emotional function.

In the spring of 2005, Arnold Fisher and the board of directors of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes proffered a rehabilitation facility. Secretary of the Army Harvey accepted the proffer and funds for the facility were received from over 600,000 Americans. Ground was broken for the four story, 65,000 square foot outpatient rehabilitation facility and two new 21 handicap accessible suite Fisher Houses on 22 September 2005. The ribbon cutting for the CFI and the new Fisher Houses was held on 29 January 2007 and patient care began in the facility on 15 February 2007.
