Robert E. Bush Naval Hospital Bldg 1145

(760) 830-2190 – Quarterdeck (760) 830-2752 -- Appointments

Robert E. Bush Naval Hospital, commissioned on July 9, 1993, is a state-of-the-art, 160,000 square-foot facility. The architectural firm who designed the hospital was awarded the Secretary of Defense's "Excellence in Design" award for a medical facility in 1994. Our hospital is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO).  Accreditation is a professional recognition of hospitals which strive to provide high-quality health care.

The hospital was recently realigned to a 12-bed facility but has the capacity to expand with swing beds. The hospital has an Emergency Medical Department, four operating rooms, and a seven-bed Desert Beginnings Labor Delivery Recovery and Postpartum (LDRP) Unit, and a Multi-Service Ward (MSW) for inpatient care. Modern full-service pharmacy, laboratory, radiology departments, physical therapy and occupational health clinics are also available to beneficiaries.

Medical services available at the hospital include Audiology, Nutrition Clinic, Family Medicine/Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Immunization Clinic, Obstetrics/Gynecology, General Surgery, Orthopedics, Optometry, and Mental Health Services.

The walk-in Immunization Clinic is open Mon., Tues., Wed., Fri. from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Specialty support and referrals for major inpatient and outpatient care not available locally are often provided by one of the local network hospitals such as, Hi-Desert Medical Center in Joshua Tree, Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Eisenhower Medical Center in La Quinta and Naval Medical Center San Diego.

Our Radiology Department offers mammography and in-house MRI scans.

Medical support in some complex cases may not be readily available. Family members and retirees may be referred to civilian sources for care, using benefits covered under one of the TRICARE programs.

Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is designed to assist service members in providing for the special needs of their exceptional family members before, during and after relocation. Special needs include any special medical, dental, mental health, developmental or education requirement, wheelchair accessibility, adaptive equipment or assistive technology devices, and housing.

The EFMP is open to any active duty family member who meets eligibility criteria. Enroll according to your military branch affiliation. For Navy beneficiaries please contact the Patient Administration Department (760) 830-2038/2427/2453.
