NHB at a Glance - Brief Synopsis

Congratulations on your orders to Naval Hospital Bremerton, located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest overlooking Puget Sound.

Naval Hospital Bremerton (NHB) is a fully accredited, community-based acute care and obstetrical hospital, currently operating 25 in-patient beds and hosting a variety of ambulatory, acute and specialty clinics.

The main Naval Hospital Bremerton campus is conveniently located just off State Route 3, approximately five miles north of Naval Base Kitsap Bremerton and Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and ten miles south of Naval Base Kitsap Bangor. The hospital's more than 1,400 dedicated military, civilian, contract and volunteer staff of doctors, nurses, hospital corpsmen and support staff administer compassionate, professional care to over 60,000 eligible military families residing within its West Puget Sound area of responsibility.

The hospital is on a wooded 49-acre campus that includes Bachelor Enlisted Quarters, a staff gym, an optical shop, and Facility Engineers buildings. A drive-through satellite pharmacy for prescription refill pickups is located adjacent to the campus in the Jackson Park Navy Family Housing area.

The hospital is also the parent command for three branch health clinics in the Puget Sound area, which are located at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Naval Base Kitsap Bangor and Naval Station Everett. Under the NHB umbrella are Occupational Health, Industrial Hygiene, Preventive Medicine and the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP).
