  • Construction on the four-story, 500,000 square foot replacement Naval
    Hospital located near the main gate of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is
    scheduled to be complete in October with move in dates of Dec. 2-15, 2013. 
  • Medical care will continue to be provided during the move. 
  • Emergency medical care and labor and delivery care will not be stopped,
    but scheduled or elective medical care may be interrupted for a day in primary

We are moving 


All the services provided in the current hospital will be provided in the replacement hospital.   Medical and technological advancements have reduced inpatient requirements over the years, while generating new requirements for ambulatory surgery and family centered obstetric care.  The replacement facility will provide advanced outpatient services, with a patient and family centered inpatient design comprised of 42 inpatient beds.  It will have nine operating rooms to include a dedicated Ortho, Cysto and C-Section OR and six Universal ORs.

The new facility will support inpatient Medical-Surgical services, an extensive ambulatory surgery capability, an adult ICU, and sufficient Labor/ Delivery/ Recovery (LDR) and Postpartum suites to support the projected birthrate of 140 per month.



 Current Naval Hospital

The replacement hospital features interiors designed to promote a healing and calming environment.  The sun filled atrium and central courtyard create natural and serene environments for patients and their families.

The replacement Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton project is projected to earn the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.  This achievement will be realized due to the implementation of various building design features, including but not limited to: green roofs, solar cells, horizontal and vertical sun screens, maximized use of recycled materials, and low-flow plumbing fixtures.  All of these features will reduce overall hospital energy consumption.

A new four story, 1,500 space parking garage and surface lots will provide more than 2,500 parking spaces, which is more than twice the number of spaces previously available.  A pedestrian bridge will connect the parking structure to the 2nd floor of the hospital.

The new facility has seven elevators, including two window elevators featuring ocean views.

As a convience for our beneficiaries who reside in the Fallbrook, Temecula and Murrieta areas, the command will establish a new Medical Home Port team at the 13 Area Branch Health Clinic for the primary care needs of active duty family members, retirees and their family members.  This new MHP team will be open prior to the opening of the replacement hospital.
