FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) - Fort Campbell’s Blanchfield Army Community Hospital is about to get a new commander.

According to the base, Col. Telita Crosland will assume command during a Monday afternoon ceremony.

In addition to a Doctorate of Medicine, Crosland has degrees in public health and national resource strategy. She is a former senior medical officer with the Office of the Surgeon General. Most recently she was the Chief of Medical Corps Branch, Human Resources Command at Fort Knox.

Crosland replaces Col. George “Ned” Appenzeller, whose two-year tenure has been one of growth.

Ground was broken on a new wing; the hospital added services like joint replacement; and it opened to retirees for the first time in more than 10 years. Blanchfield also opened a center for traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder.
