Balboa Naval Medical Center
Balboa Naval Medical Center is the one of the facilities the military offers as a medical source for all veterans.
Located on Florida Drive, adjacent to Balboa Park, Naval Medical Center San Diego (NMCSD) , is the Pride of Navy Medicine. The hospital has played a vital role in the history of San Diego for more than 80 years. From the original tent dispensary established in 1917, to the high-tech, ultra modern facility of the 1990s, the mission has remained constant to provide the finest medical care in a family-centered care environment to the operational forces, their families, and to those who served their country in the past.
There are approximately 250,000 people in San Diego County eligible to receive care at NMCSD, with nearly 100,000 enrolled. This care is provided by more than 6,200 military and civilian staff. To augment that staff and to expand the scope of services available to its patient population, Naval Medical Center San Diego has taken the lead in introducing many innovative partnership and resource sharing programs with civilian providers.
Naval Medical Center San Diego is first and foremost a military command. The center has five medical mobilization teams including the hospital ship USNS Mercy whose personnel are drawn from the hospital staff. These teams deploy to the Western Pacific and Southeast Asia at various times during the year. It is the center's mission to insure Sailors and Marines onboard those ships have access to quality medical care, if needed.
Throughout its proud history, Naval Medical Center San Diego has established itself as a leader in the field of medicine. That reputation for excellence continues today as the staff propels NMCSD into the 21st century.
