ABOUT NMRTC GREAT LAKES
 
Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command Great Lakes was established at the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center (FHCC) in 2019 and encompasses all Navy personnel at the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center (FHCC).  
 
The FHCC is a first-of-its-kind partnership between the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense (DoD), integrating all medical care into a federal health care facility with a combined VA and Navy mission.
 
Lovell FHCC is located in North Chicago, Illinois, and was established on Oct. 1, 2010 when the former North Chicago VA Medical Center (VAMC) and the former Naval Health Clinic Great Lakes (NHCGL) merged their resources and services. A combined mission of the health care center means veterans, military personnel and their family members are all cared for at the facility. The center cares for nearly 75,000 patients per year, including an estimated 40,000 Navy recruits who prepare for military service at through Recruit Training Command at Naval Station Great Lakes.
 
In 2019, the resources of Lovell FHCC that provide medical care and support for Department of Defense beneficiaries were aligned under the management oversight of the Defense Health Agency. While DHA is responsible for health care delivery and business operations, Navy Medicine retains principle responsibility for operational readiness of the Navy and Marine Corps. To complement the transition, Navy Medicine established the co-located Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command Great Lakes, to which all military personnel of Lovell FHCC are assigned.
