Naval Hospital Parking

Personnel driving their privately owned vehicle or rental car will be issued a temporary parking permit. This will occur during the check-in procedures. Prior to obtaining your temporary permit you may park in any non-reserved (staff) parking or visitor parking. Try and refrain from parking in any patient parking areas.

Assignment during AT

Please be advised, the check-in day (0730-1130) is considered a workday. Assignment upon reporting on the first day of AT is based upon the requirement you are matched to in MEDRUPMIS. Every effort will be made to assign a meaningful department. Please be thinking of areas that you feel deficient in, so that we may assist you in gaining experience in those areas.


Check-out will start at 1300 on the last day of your AT and needs to be completed by 1400. This is considered a workday, so you will return to work after check out is complete. Otherwise service members must be pre-approved via the OSO for a waiver of this policy. In order to complete checkout, you will need to report to the Operational Support office in an appropriate uniform, bringing with you the following completed and signed forms.
  1. DIMHRSi time sheet
  2. AT Checkout sheet
  3. Reserve ID badge
  4. Non-Providers (Nurses/HM's) must return copies of any competencies completed while on AT

We will collect these items from you, verify your health status to return to reserve drill duty and issue you your original orders and supplemental travel claim when applicable.
