Naval Hospital Patuxent River, Maryland (NHPR)

 

The first medical facility at Patuxent River was an infirmary built in 1943. It was later designated as a dispensary. In the mid-50s, this command was designated a station hospital and was considered a department of the Naval Air Station. This command was originally designed as a 217 bed hospital. On 1 July 1968, the station hospital was designated a Naval Hospital under the management control of the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED). The present facility was planned in 1962, and commissioned on 29 May 1969. The present organization provides ambulatory health care.

 

In 1998, Naval Hospital Patuxent River (NHPR) was converted to an ambulatory facility becoming NHC Patuxent River with the additions of Branch Health Clinics Indian Head, Dahlgren, and Naval Air Facility on Joint Base Andrews in 2009.

Naval Hospital Pensacola Florida - Our History, Older than 26 U.S. states...

 
Naval Hospital Pensacola is in its second century of service and is one of the oldest and most respected military medical facilities in the country. It continues to provide health care to over 150,000 beneficiaries in its main facility and 10 branch clinics in 5 states.
 
Naval Hospital Pensacola began its service in January 1826. President Adams assigned the first surgeon and officer in charge, Navy Surgeon Isaac Hulse, to establish a hospital at the Pensacola Navy Yard in support of the West Indies Squadron. Dr. Hulse established the Naval Hospital by renting a 2-story house as a temporary medical facility, for $30 a month. Dr. Hulse would go on to spend 19 of his 33-year Navy career in Pensacola.
 
Although the establishment of Naval Hospital Pensacola was authorized in the 1811 Congressional Act which “…established navy hospitals…” a permanent facility was not completed until 1834. The first hospital was completed, at a cost of nearly $12,000; it was located about three-quarters of a mile from the Navy Yard on a 30-foot bluff. It was described as being 'outside the wall' of the Navy Yard. However, the hospital established its own wall - which can be seen today at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola. It was a 12-foot-high brick façade enclosing the entire 15-acre compound. The wall was built so high as it was thought to keep mosquitoes out.....
