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 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 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).
