Navy Medicine East (NME) is headquartered on the campus of Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP)—the Navy’s oldest continuously running hospital. NME is one of two regional commands that manage Navy Medicine’s global health care system. It oversees the effectiveness and efficiency of the delivery of medical, dental and other health care services to approximately 1 million patients across almost 100 medical centers, hospitals and branch clinics throughout the United States (East and Gulf coasts from Great Lakes to Key West), Spain, Italy, Greece, Cuba and Bahrain. Plus, its public health activities extend globally.
NME also oversees the Tidewater Enhanced Multi-Service Market (integrates NMCP, U.S. Air Force Hospital Langley and McDonald Army Health Center to maximize clinical capabilities) and public health experts at the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (9 facilities in the U.S. and one in Spain).
NME’s area of responsibility includes more than 26,000 doctors, nurses, hospital corpsmen and support staff who provide the full spectrum of health care. In Fiscal Year 2015, this staff supported 6 million primary care and specialty care clinic visits; admitted more than 35,000 patients to its hospitals; filled 7.3 million prescriptions; and, delivered 6,300 babies.
NME’s nationally acclaimed facilities are accredited by The Joint Commission and recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for Patient-Centered Medical Homes. The staff offers exceptional care, graduate medical education and leading-edge clinical research. For example, NMCP performs complex surgical procedures in the largest robotic operating suite on the East Coast. Naval Hospital (NH) Camp Lejeune serves the largest concentration of ill, wounded and injured Marines in the world. NH Jacksonville’s award-winning Family Medicine Residency Program continues to attract some of the nation’s best family physicians. NH Pensacola’s Urgent Care Center is open seven days a week to meet patient needs. Capt. James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center, the nation’s first integrated Veterans Affairs/ Department of Defense health care center, brings first-rate care to active-duty and their families, retirees, and veterans—all under one roof.
Along with care performed at shore-based facilities, up to five percent of the staff across the region are temporarily assigned to support operational, humanitarian and disaster response missions around the world. This includes areas from the Horn of Africa to Afghanistan, as well as deployments on USNS Comfort (T-AH 20)—the Navy’s East Coast hospital ship.
Whether that care is needed on the battlefield, above or below the sea, or at home, NME and its staff across the 100 facilities are committed to ensuring the nation’s warfighters—past and present—and their families receive the highest quality care.N
