Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command Okinawa is comprised predominantly of military members that support U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa, Japan. The command supports overall Navy and Marine Corps readiness by training military command members to ensure they are ready to deploy and provide medical support to various operational Navy and Marine units deployed, ashore or at sea.

​U. S. Naval Hospital Okinawa is the largest overseas hospital in the United States Navy, serving a beneficiary population of 55,000 active duty personnel, family members, civilian employees, contract personnel, and retirees. The hospital also provides referral services for nearly 189.000 beneficiaries throughout the western Pacific.

In March 2013, U. S. Naval Hospital Okinawa moved from Camp Lester to a newly constructed replacement facility on Camp Foster.

U. S. Naval Hospital Okinawa is jointly staffed by active duty Navy, Army, Air force, and Marine Corps personnel, as well as U. S. civilians, contractors, and Japanese employees. All are dedicated to providing high quality patient and family centered care to our warriors, their families, and others entrusted to us.

Besides the main facility, the hospital also manages six branch medical clinics staffed by hospital personnel and III Marine Expeditionary Force subordinate commands. These clinics are located at Camp Schwab, Camp Hansen, Camp Courtney, Camp Foster, MCAS Futenma, and Camp Kinser.

Although its location may have changed, the hospital's long tradition of compassion and quality care continues.​
