About Us

Our strength lies in a union of research, teaching and excellent patient care.

Navy Medicine West (NMW) is Navy Medicine's health care system in the Western Pacific providing medical care to more than 675,000 beneficiaries. Primary, specialty and hospital-based care services are provided at all NMW Military Treatment Facilities (MTF).

The region headquarters is located at Naval Base San Diego,  with MTFs and dental centers on the Northern and Southern West coast, in Hawaii, Japan and Guam.

 

History of Navy Regions:

In August 2005, Navy Medicine implemented a realignment effort to better direct the collective shore-based assets of Navy Medicine to maintain readiness and deliver the highest quality care in the most cost effective manner. This effort resulted in the standing up of four Echelon 3 (flag level) commands — Navy Medicine West, Navy Medicine East, Navy Medicine National Capital Area and Navy Medicine Support Command. Subordinate commands under Navy Medicine West include all Navy MTFs and Navy Dental Centers on the West coast, in Hawaii, Japan and Guam.
