Abstract : Comparative analysis showed that mean lengths of stay for active duty personnel were significantly greater than comparable dependent/retired military mean lengths of stay. Dependent/retired military mean lengths of stay are essentially the same for Balboa and Oak Knoll Naval Hospitals. The study also indicated that there is no strong evidence that lengths of stay in the civilian sector are significantly less than lengths of stay in the military health care facilities.
