Craig Hospital Sponsors Operation TBI Freedom as New Program

OTF to Continue Mission of Working with Colorado Veterans and Service Members with TBI

Englewood, CO and Colorado Springs, CO—Craig Hospital announces today Operation TBI Freedom (OTF), the Colorado Springs-based non-profit, is now a Craig Hospital sponsored program.

OTF, formerly a program of Rocky Mountain Human Services (RMHS), will continue its mission of working with Colorado veterans and service members with traumatic brain injury (TBI).

RMHS is undergoing some significant changes and determined Craig Hospital would be the best fit for the program.

“Craig Hospital is a world-renowned rehabilitation hospital that specializes in providing services to people with spinal cord injury and TBI. Like Operation TBI Freedom, Craig Hospital's goal is to help clients live an independent and productive life post injury. We believe Craig Hospital’s administration of OTF will only enhance the services and outcomes for current and future Operation TBI Freedom clients,” said RHMS Interim Executive Director Shari Repinski.

“This is an exciting time for Craig Hospital and Operation TBI Freedom,” said Mike Fordyce, President and CEO of Craig Hospital, “Together we will continue to improve the lives of people living with TBI and positively impact service members in Colorado. We are thrilled to welcome the OTF team to the Craig family and look forward to the opportunity to thank and assist our service members by sponsoring this program.”

Operation TBI Freedom is located in Colorado Springs and offers case management services including crisis management, mental health referrals, classes, and emergency assistance for food and housing needs for veterans with traumatic brain injury. OTF supports many service members from Fort Carson. In the past eight years, the nonprofit has assisted more than 1,300 service members.
