The National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) is an evaluation, treatment planning and research facility located on the campus of NSA Bethesda, Md. Designated a center of excellence because of its diverse capabilities and overarching mission, the NICoE is dedicated to providing care to service members and families dealing with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health (PH) conditions.


Built and equipped through the philanthropic contributions of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), the NICoE is a tribute to all who serve and a lasting legacy of the patriotic citizens who have made its existence possible.


The NICoE provides an interdisciplinary team assessment in a holistic, patient and family-centered environment that also offers high-tech diagnostic capabilities. Our treatment planning and long-term follow up for service members with combat-related TBI and PH conditions allows us to foster physical, psychological and spiritual healing.

• HEALING: Every action we perform provides a sense of healing through physical, behavioral, social and spiritual care.

• LEARNING : We seek to be the national scientific and research information hub for service members, families, providers, researchers, staff and our academic partners.

• HOPE: We aim to recognize currently unknown patterns of physiological and psychological processes to develop proven treatment solutions for service members and their families, instilling hope in each who interact with the NICoE that healing is possible.

• DISCOVERY: We strive to be a leader through family centric approaches to the physical, social and spiritual wellness continuum as well as aforum for research and promising treatment trials.
