RIC Leads National Charge to Open Accessibility to Civilian Rehabilitation Hospitals

RIC was featured this week in both the New York Times and "CBS Evening News with Katie Couric" in stories highlighting the proactive steps that RIC has taken to drive change to the healthcare accessibility challenges that severely injured U.S. soldiers are facing in obtaining proper rehabilitation care. This story is told in conjunction with RIC inpatient, active-duty Army Sergeant Eric Edmundson, who sustained a TBI from an improvised explosive device (IED) in Iraq.
