A Brief History of the Naval Hospital at Bremerton, Washington

Militarydefenseattorney23.17824Washington historically has hosted a number of Naval facilities, including many different Naval hospitals or health care facilities. In the 1890s, The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Washington was given its first Naval hospital. The Navy Yard received funding for a more permanent building in 1909, but no medical equipment arrived for two years. When it eventually opened in 1912, it was architecturally magnificent, built in Neo-classical style. However, the 200-bed capacity building was replaced in 1980 with the more modern facility in Jackson Park in Bremerton.

Because the hospital itself, regardless of location, spans from World War I through today, it has had a great deal of historical events. During the First World War, the soon to be permanently established hospital was housed in two University of Washington dormitories. In the time of World War II, the WAVES (Women Accepted for Voluntary Emergency Service) offered their services as clerical and support for the doctors. The Korean War saw a spike of admissions once more, with 17,000 admissions. After this war, the hospital continued care for sailors who were visiting, as well as extended to the Navy community.
