Abstract : The Portsmouth Naval Medical Center is a teaching hospital that provides comprehensive health care services to active duty forces and, when space is available, provides medical services to other DOD beneficiaries (i.e., dependents of active duty members and retirees and their dependents) in the Norfolk, Virginia, area. When space is not available, beneficiaries receive health care in civilian hospitals and clinics under DOD health plans. Currently, Portsmouth provides medical care primarily in two hospitals (building 1 and building 215) and seven outpatient clinics located throughout the Norfolk area. The two buildings have a total of 348 inpatient beds and about 700,000 gross square feet of facility space. Building 1 is used primarily for psychiatric, pediatric, and obstetrics and gynecological services. Building 215 contains about 500,000 gross square feet of space on floors 1 through 15; floors 16 through 18 are mechanical support spaces and therefore are not available for occupancy. Building 215 is currently used to provide a range of inpatient and outpatient services. Appendix I shows the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center, as of August 1996.
