Rear Admiral, MC
Surgeon General, U. S. Navy
Since the Fourth Regiment, United
States Marines, came ashore at North
Island in 1914 and then moved with
its field hospital to Balboa Park, this
area has been the site of continuous
naval medical activity. During World
War 1, the Camp Hospital served a
large training camp, expanding its
bed capacity to over 800. This facility
was established on a permanent basis
on 20 May 1919 as the U. S. Naval
Hospital, San Diego, with Captain M.
D. Curl, MC, USN, as the first medi-
cal officer in command.
World War II laid vastly increased
demands on the facilities and staff.
These were met in an outstanding
manner. When the war began, the
Hospital was caring for some 1,200
patients, at the time of the greatest
patient load, there were 12,014 per-
sons under treatment, and between
the outbreak of war and V-I Day ap-
proximately 175,000 patients were
cared for with notable success.
The Korean Conflict again de-
manded a special effort in order to
provide the best of professional medi-
cal and dental care to great numbers
of the wounded and ill servicemen who
were landed on the West Coast. The
success with which this was accom-
plished contributed to an altogether
splendid chapter in the history of the
Medical Department of the United
Beginning in 1928, the Hospital
Corps School, by training generations
of corpsmen, has contributed enor-
mously to patient care in the Navy
and Marine Corps. During World
War ll, rapid expansion was achieved,
until in 1945 alone a total of 14,907
corpsmen were graduated. This helped
to make possible the maximum War-
time strength of 137,460 attained by
the Hospital Corps. Today the School
provides both Class A basic training
and Class C training in pharmacy
technicg in the summer of 1958 there
will be added Class B advanced train-
Since the construction of the first
permanent building on the present
site in 1922, the physical facilities of
the Hospital have been tremendously
improved, culminating in the newly
completed 1000-bed surgical wing.
This is now our largest naval hospital,
and in respect to location, buildings,
and equipment is generally regarded
as one of the finest in the United
States. More important, the quality of
professional care is unsurpassed any-
where, and fully approved resident
and intern training programs are in
My congratulations and thanks to
all those Medical Department person-
nel whose ability and unselfish devo-
tion have contributed to the splendid
results so far achieved, and my sin-
cere good wishes for the future prog-
ress of the U. S. Naval Hospital, San
Diego, and its Hospital Corps School.

HISTORY OF THE MEDICAL DEPARTMENT
The story of the Medical Department of the United States
Navy is one to arouse pride and stimulate enthusiasm in
every American citizen. Such continuous, and at times stu-
pendous strides forward, have been taken in the quality of
the medical care provided for personnel of the Navy and
Marine Corps as to be almost unbelievable.
It is good to note and give thought to just how far we
actually have advanced beyond the conditions of ignorance
and neglect that were prevalent in the eighteenth century.
Then, disease and pestilence were rampant, and a severely
wounded sailor had little hope of survival, now, the mor-
bidity rate in the Navy has been reduced to the lowest point
in history, and in the Korean Conflict the mortality rate for
Navy and Marine Corps personnel who had been wounded
in combat was only 2.0 per cent, truly an all-time low.
The practice of naval medicine in America had its be-
ginnings late in 1775, when the first American fleet was
placed in commission by acts of the Continental Congress.
Physicians originally were selected by commanders of naval
vessels to serve on individual voyages, and often were assisted
only by the oldest or most incompetent of the seamen on
board. Much of the financial reward the Surgeon could ex-
pect consisted of a share in such booty as the ship might
In 1798, when the Navy Department was established, sur-
geons and surgeons' mates were given the status of commis-
sioned officers, but then and for the next 44 years there was
no medical department, only individual officers who were
not organized in any sense. During this period, there was
only gradual evolution toward adequate medical support of
the Navy. A Marine Hospital Fund, made up of monthly pay-
ments from all seamen and later augmented by money from
fines and forfeitures, was established to finance hospitals.
Most hospitals were in unsatisfactory buildings selected with-
out plan, and a major accomplishment of the Fund was mak-
ing arrangement for building the first permanent hospital,
at Norfolk, Virginia. This hospital began to receive patients
in 1830. Other hospitals, financed by regular appropriations,
soon followed-in Philadelphia in 1833, in Boston in 1836,
and Brooklyn in 1838.
Throughout this first portion of the nineteenth century, a
number of able and energetic physicians fought for a well-
organized and adequately-equipped medical department.
Their efforts resulted in considerable improvement in the
quality of professional personnel, in medical equipment and
supplies, and in quarters for the sick on board ships and at
hospitals ashore. Notable among these men were Edward
Cutbush, Usher Parson, Lewis Heerman, and William P. C.
Doctor Barton, in particular, made numerous contributions
that had a great and lasting- effect in improving medical
care. He was an early advocate of increasing the space as-
signed as a sick bay on board ship, and of standardizing
equipment and supplies for the medical departments of ships.
He also was responsible for establishing a medical library
in each naval medical unit and for instituting a medical
journal on each patient, however, his proposal for utilizing
female nurses in hospitals went unheeded for two generations.
Perhaps his greatest contribution was in writing his
Treatise Containing A Plan for the Internal Organization
and Government of Marine CNavyJ Hospitals. Certainly this
classified treatise and his continuous efforts had much to
do with the establishment in 1842 of the Bureau of Medicine
and Surgery, which was created to supervise naval medical
affairs along the lines he had proposed. Most appropriately,
he was named the first Chief of Bureau. fThe title of Surgeon
General was not created until 1871 and was first held by
William M. Wood, the fifth Chief of Bureauj
From its inception, the new Bureau made notable progress
in organizing, developing, and perfecting naval medicine.
Fascinating accounts of many aspects of this progress can
be found in the reports to the Secretary of the Navy made
each year since Civil War times by the Chief of Bureau or,
after 1871, by the Surgeon General. This unbroken series
of annual reports has been of great value to students of
preventive medicine, vital statisticians, and public health
authorities, in determining trends of morbidity and mortality
One development that had an early beginning-the estab-
lishing of hospitals in ships-conferred mobility on definitive
medical and surgical care, making it possible to furnish
such care wherever on the seven seas it might be needed.
The best-known hospital ship employed during the Civil
War, the Red Rover, was a Mississippi sidewheeler cap-
tured from Confederate forces and converted for use as a
hospital under the command of Surgeon Ninian Pinkney.
The staff included the first female nurses of whom there is
any record in the Navy. They were Nursing Sisters who
volunteered only for service during the war.
Other hospital ships followedg of these the USS Solace,
converted to hospital use in 1898 during the Spanish-
American War, was the first of our naval vessels to fly the
Geneva Red Cross flag. A long controversy over whether -a
medical or a line officer should command such a ship finally
ended in placing a line officer in command of the ship
proper, with a medical officer in command of the hospital
within the ship and of all professional medical matters.
During World War 1 and World War ll, more and more
advanced hospital ships were developed, particularly those
few that were built from the keel up for this purpose. Near
the close of the latter war, some 12 hospital ships were in
operation by the Navy, those of the Haven class being of
advanced design. Still greater effectiveness was achieved
during the Korean Conflict by the addition of landing
platforms for helicopters so that casualties wounded in battle
could be flown in a matter of minutes from close behind the
front line to the safety and expert care available on the
ship. Such atraumatic and expeditious handling saved many
Other early developments of great value were instituted by
the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. A book of Instruction
for Medical Officers, now known as the Manual of the
Medical Department, was first published in 1886. A Naval
Medical School was established by Surgeon General Presley
M. Rixey in 1902 for post graduate instruction of newly
appointed medical officers in special aspects of naval medi-
cine. Annual physical examinations of naval personnel were
begun in 1909. To provide information on current progress
in professional matters to Medical Department personnel,
wherever they might be, publication of the U. S. Naval
Medical Bulletin was inaugurated in 1907. The Bulletin with
its successor, the U. S. Armed Forces Medical Journal, have
been published continuously to the present day. A supple-
mentary Hospital Corps Quarterly, now the Medical Tech-
nicians Bulletin, was provided for non-professional Medical
It is especially enlightening to consider the changes that
have taken place over the years in the status of various com-
ponent groups having a part in naval medicine. The term,
"Medical Corps," was first employed in an appropriation
act of 1871. Thereafter medical officers were listed as mem
bers of the staff corps of the Navy. Their grades were Medi-
cal Director, Medical Inspector, Surgeon, Passed Assistant
Surgeon, and Assistant Surgeon, with ranks of Captain,
Commander, Lieutenant Commander, Lieutenant, and Master
flater changed to Lieutenant, junior gradej. Since 1918,
medical officers have held the regular military titles of their
Prior to 1898, enlisted assistants to medical officers were
known successively as loblolly boys, surgeons' stewards,
apothecaries, nurses, and baymen. In that year the Hospital
Corps was established by legislation, which specified quali-
fications and duties. The 60 years that have elapsed since
then have seen the Hospital Corps demonstrate increasingly
high morale and technical competence based both on the
fine quality of personnel assigned to the Corps and the
careful training afforded each member.
The Navy Nurse Corps was established without commis-
sioned rank in 1908, and women nurses thereafter served
ably in many shore-based hospitals and on hospital ships.
In World War I1 over 11,000 nurses were in service. An
act of 1947 made members of the Nurse Corps permanently
commissioned staff officers with rank, pay, and allowances
equal to those of other staff officers up to and including
Captain. Officers of the Nurse Corps have performed in-
valuable service in field medical units in Japan and Korea,
in troop air transports, on hospital and sea transport ships,
and in all shore-based hospitals.
The Dental Corps was established in 1912, and dental offi-
cers served with distinction in both world Wars and in Korea.
Over 7,000 were in service during World War II. In 1945 an
organizational change in the Bureau assigned to dental offi-
cers the technical control of dental activities' ashore and
The Medical Service Corps was established in 1947, giving
commissioned rank to administrative specialists and men
trained in such fields as pharmacy, optometry, psychology,
bacteriology, and other sciences related to medicine. 'Officers
of the Medical Service Corps, with ranks up to and including
Captain, have been of immeasurable assistance to medical
and dental officers by absorbing much of the administrative
workload and serving as specialists in various sciences.
During the present century, training and technical educa-
tion have expanded continuously, in step with growing
specialization, increasing complexity of the medical sciences,
and enlarging scope of Medical Department operation. In
1902 there was established, in addition to the Naval Medical
School, the first school for training hospital corpsmen. This
was at Norfolk, Virginia, other schools were established
later at Great Lakes, Illinois, Bainbridge, Maryland, and
San Diego, California. In 1922, the Naval Dental School
was inaugurated for postgraduate training of dental officers.
In 1939, the Naval School of Aviation Medicine was set up
at Pensacola, Florida, in 1942 the Naval School of Hospital
Administration was started at Bethesda, Maryland, and in
1951 Field Medical Service Schools were commissioned at
Camp Pendleton and Camp Lejeune.
The Bureau of Medicine and Surgery observed its 116th
anniversary on 31 August 1958. It is the only Navy bureau
still retaining its original name as established by Congress
in 1842, but only since 1942 has it occupied the present
'quarters in the group of buildings around the old Naval
Observatory. Its more recent accomplishments, and those of
the devoted officers and men who constitute the Medical
Department of the United States Navy, have been so many
and varied that they cannot even be mentioned in this short
historical sketch. Suffice it to say that naval medicine has
made tremendous progress since 1775, and that in recent
years this progress has been accelerated enormously. Today,
the quality of professional care furnished to Navy and
Marine Corps personnel is outstanding and second to none.
U. S. NAVAL HOSPITAL, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
The primary mission of this Hospital is to provide general
clinical, hospitalization and dental services to military per-
sonnel of shore activities and fleet units with the object of
their expeditious return to duty and the prompt disposition
of those patients who require special treatment not satis-
factorily available or who are found physically unfit for re-
tention in the military service.
The secondary mission of this hospital includes the in-
struction of Medical Department personnel, including intern
and resident training, the care and treatment of authorized
nonmilitary patients, research in authorized medical and
related projects, and cooperation with military and civil
authorities in matters pertaining to health and sanitation
and in the event of local disasters or emergencies.
On 20 May 1958, the Hospital completed its thirty-ninth
year of rendering aid to military personnel and their de-
pendents. Today, this institution stands as a monument to
the progress of the Navy and is a picturesque landmark in
the State of California.
A historical account of the present hospital would not
be complete without a brief statement of facts of its founders
and forerunners. Returning from Mexican waters in the
Summer of 1914, the Fourth Regiment of the U. S. Marine
Corps landed and established a base on North Island and
in so doing gave being to the San Diego area as a great naval
center. Lieutenant Commander U. R. Webb, who 17 years
later became Medical Officer in Command of the Hospital,
was the Senior Medical Officer attached to the Fourth Regi-
ment. During the latter half of 1914, the Fourth Regiment,
.along with its field hospital, was moved to Balboa Park as
an exhibit in the Panama-California Exposition and remained
there until the exposition closed in the Spring of 1917.
With the advent of World War I, officials of the City of
San Diego and the Navy Department realized the opportuni-
ties afforded by the Balboa Park Exposition Grounds for
use as a naval training center and on 20 May 1917, the
Center was officially established.
The medical segment of the Naval Training Center was
housed in the Headquarters Building of the Park Police.
This building, then named the '4War Dispensaryf' provided
space for the medical administrative unit and two wards of
25 beds each. As the training center grew, the War Dis-
pensary expanded so rapidly that tent camps had to be set
up to accommodate the sick and injured personnel. By the
end of the war the "tent city,' had reached an 800 patient
Commander Ammen Farenholt, who later retired in the
rank of Rear Admiral, was the first senior Medical Officer
of the War Dispensary. It was through Admiral Farenholt's
hobby of collecting war relics that various familiar land-
marks located at the hospital today were acquired. Two naval
cannons used by the U. S. Marines during the Mexican War,
Tent City, 1917
a sundial and plaques at the main gate, lower gate and
above the entrance of the Administration Building were
donated by the Admiral.
During the course of World War I, Navy Officials realized
that San Diego would be an ideal location for a permanent
air station, Marine Corps base, naval training station and a
naval hospital large enough in size and facilities to serve the
military personnel. On 20 May 1919, the Secretary of the
Navy changed the title of the War Dispensary to the desig-
nation of Naval Hospital and ordered plans for the con-
struction of a permanent hospital.
Inspiration Point was offered the Navy by San Diego for
the hospital site. It was a tract of land worthy of the name
Inspiration Point, for it comprises a hilltop of 92.66 acres
and offers a beautiful view of Balboa Park and picturesque
San Diego Bay. The contract for the construction of the
first buildings was drawn in October 1920. It called for a
central administration building flanked by three wards on
each side. Rear Admiral Edward R. Stitt, Surgeon General
of the Navy, was responsible for the early planning of the
hospital. The street running in front of the three original
buildings was named Stitt Avenue in honor of the man who
had so much to do with the structural planning. The con-
struction also included four other buildings, among them
the Surgical Suite and Mess Hall. The hospital was built at
a cost of 31,103,321. The work was accomplished and the
establishment placed in commission on 22 August 1922.
The equipment from the War Dispensary was moved to
the present Hospital location. Captain F. W. F. Weiber,
second commanding officer of the hospital, then instituted
the landscaping of the grounds. William H. Crofts, an English
ORIGINAL MEDICAL DISPENSARY, 1917
gardener who had established a reputation as a master gar-
dener during 10 years' service on the estate of the Duke of
Norfolk in Sheffield, England, and who had 10 years' experi-
ence in America, was hired as Head Gardener. The results
of Crofts, work was a display which brought much praise
from people who appreciated the wonderful symmetry and
design. The landscaping of the grounds lives on as a tribute
to the workers who made the hospital grounds the most
beautiful in the State of California.
The first buildings provided bed space for less than 300
patients while the daily census of patients in 1923 was 400.
Tents, erected in what is now the main patio, provided for
the overflow. At that time three additional buildings were
under construction. These buildings were completed in 1924-
at a cost of approximately 3500,000 and added a medical
and surgical department of three wards with 172 beds each.
This brought the hospitalis total bed capacity up to 618.
The third building was a service building which housed the
shops, laundry and garage.
The Fleet concentration in the Pacific and the growth of
naval shore activities increased so that in 1925 the bed
capacity of the hospital was once again inadequate. Captain
Raymond Spear, then Medical Officer in Command, recom-
mended the construction of four new buildings which in-
cluded North wards, a laboratory department, an X-ray de-
partment, a nurses' quarters and an incinerator building.
Completion of these buildings brought the number of avail-
able beds up to 882, but another shortage occurred in 1928.
The fourth contract provided for a contagion ward at the
south end ofthe patio, a Hospital Corps School and a Morgue.
The entire compound in 1928 represented an investment

of 353,500,000 ln addition, a 347,000 recreation hall had
been donated by the Red Cross in 1922.
In 1929, a 3250,000 contract provided a sick officers'
quarters at the north end of the grounds and four officers'
quarters at the south end of the compound. This brought
the bed capacity up to 1035.
At the beginning of World War II, the Hospital consisted
of 56 buildings with an authorized bed capacity of 1,424.
By the end of the war, the command had so expanded that
it was divided into six units. These units were composed of
a total of 241 buildings on a combined area of 247 acres
with an authorized bed capacity of 10,499.
Unit One consisted of the buildings on the Reservation.
Unit Two consisted of 33 acres and 25 exposition buildings
in Balboa Park which were taken over by the Navy in 1941.
This unit also had a "city'7 of 239 tents. Unit Three, Camp
Kidd, was transferred to the Hospital in 1944 and became
the Hospital Corps School. It was made up of 33 converted
Army barracks in the central section of Balboa Park. Unit
Four was made up of 28 Army barracks in the southwestern
section of the park. Unit Five was composed of 11 buildings
used for storage for the crew and patients. Unit Six consisted
of the convalescent branch of the hospital at Rancho Santa
Fe, located 30 miles from the main Hospital.
At the outbreak of the war in 1941 the Hospital was car-
ing for approximately 1,200 patients with 728 staff mem-
bers on duty. The staff consisted of 93 medical officers, 82
nurses and 518 enlisted corpsmen. ln August 1945, the last
month of the war, the Hospital cared for an average of
8,096 patients. During this period - World War 11 - ap-
proximately 172,000 patients were treated, the peak having
been reached on 27 December 1944, when the patient census
soared to an all-time high of more than 12,000.
When the war terminated, the six additional hospital units
were disestablished and the Balboa Park properties were
returned to the City of San Diego.
In the era following the end of Vlforld War II the program
of expansion was once more undertaken.
In 1946, a Residency Training Program was established
for the training of medical officers in the various specialties.
This program has continued to the present time and has been
continuously supported by an additional staff of outstanding
civilian medical specialists in the area who serve as con-
In 1947, a new nurses, quarters was completed with ac-
commodations for 88 nurses. At the outbreak of the Korean
Conflict, the Hospital had added a new animal house, a
large parking shed, a maintenance service building which
housed a machine shop and key shop, a lubrication hoist,
a paint and spray booth and a smaller parking shed.
During the Korean Conflict the Hospital once again lived

treated from the beginning of the conflict until the truce
was signed on 26 Iuly 1953.
In 1952, the Sick Officers' Quarters were expanded and
the Navy Exchange Restaurant was enlarged. The Spring of
1955 saw the completion of the Transportation Building at
the south end of the compound. At this time Transportation
vacated the basement of Building 11 and a laundry and
uniform and tailor shop moved in. Iune of 1954 marked
the beginning of construction of the new surgical building
which was commissioned 15 May 1957, at a cost of approxi-
The U. S. Naval Hospital, San Diego, is one of the largest
military hospitals in the world, maintaining a staff of ap-
proximately 450 officers, 700 enlisted personnel and 700
civilian personnel. The Hospital has often been spoken of
as one of the finest hospitals, civilian or military, in the
United States. It is a specialized treatment center for on-
cology, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, thoracic and cardio-
vascular surgery, tuberculosis and acrylic ocular prosthesis.
As an outstanding citadel of mercy, the Hospital has been
a leader in the field of medicine and has kept up with the
highest traditions of the Naval Service as well as the tradi-
tions of the medical profession.
Now, in this, the Hospital's 39th year, the personnel and
the institution rededicate themselves to keep alive in the
future the slogan, "Men as well as ships need a haven for
repairn . . . a symbol to be carried throughout the years in
the march toward greater heights as a leader in the Navy
and in the field of medicine.

In making the change from civilian to military life, the
Navy man does not leave behind the religious beliefs which
he learned at home.
He is given every opportunity and encouragement to
maintain and strengthen his religious interests. Each staff
member and patient at this Hospital is given an opportunity
to worship in his own faith.
In time of distress or personal emergency the Chaplains
stand ready to give advice and counsel. Each man is en-
couraged to take his personal problems to a chaplain of his
choice at any time.
The Chaplains' division maintains close contact with the
Navy Relief Society and the American Red Cross in ob-
taining financial and other assistance for those in need.
Regular divine services are conducted by Chaplains, thus
giving each man an opportunity to Worship in accordance
with his religious background, and present inclinations.

Pause for a moment while you look through these pictures
and let your mind flash back 37 years to 1920.
As we stroll through the beautiful grounds of the hospital,
admire the floral displays, the quiet patios and well-kept
grounds, it seems incredible to think that only 37 years ago
only 7 buildings were standing. The most recently con-
structed one was the Red Cross Building, built and donated
to the Navy by the organization. Looking at the intense
activity on all sides today, it is hard to believe that in the
Red Cross Building in 1920, all activities took place. It
housed the library and Red Cross offices as it does todayg
the Chaplains, offices, Special Services, tailor shop and
library all had their headquarters here also. The Field Di-
rector, Mrs. Nelle Boud, who held this position for 25 years,
was.a familiar sight as she drove to serve the ships in the
bay in her Model-T Ford.
Today all is changed. The hospital, composed of many
buildings, reflects the expanded services of all its branches.
Following the pattern, Red Cross, to meet the needs, en-
larged and grew.
For better administration the activities of hospital Red
Cross are divided into recreation and social service.
The social service program includes both Red Cross and
Civil Service social workers. These people have definite ward
assignments and give casework service to hospitalized serv-
icemen, duty personnel and to dependents, both inpatients
One of the chief objectives of social service is to work
with the hospital team in contributing to the patient's restora-
tion to health and to his best possible personal and social
Together with this, Red Cross is obligated by Congressional
Charter "to serve as a medium of communication between
the people of the United States and the Armed Forcesf' This
implies certain responsibilities and covers the broad area of
communications, counselling, financial assistance and per-
The purpose of Red Cross recreation is to provide a
medically approved recreation program which is adapted to
the interests of the patients. This program on the wards
carries out individualized recreation for patients which in-
cludes parties, assisting with hobbies, teaching crafts, pro-
viding movies, etc.
In the Red Cross Lounge special recreation events are

The General Surgical Service includes General, Cardio-
Respiratory, Plastic, and Neurosurgery. The Department also
has supervision and is responsible for the Anesthesiology
Section, Oxygen Therapy, Central Sterile Supplies, the Op-
erating Room Suites, Receiving Ward, Recovery Room, and
the Tumor Board.
The Department is under the direct guidance of the Chief
of Surgery. The hospital has been designated by the Bureau
of Medicine and Surgery as a center for Cardio-vascular,
Plastic Surgery, Oncological, and Neurosurgery. Consequent-
ly, there is a large variety of all types of surgical problems
seen in the Department daily.
The Surgical Department is housed in the new modern
building, consisting of a thousand beds, accommodating
patients in all the surgical specialties. Each Service has open
wards and private rooms. There is an adequate number of
offices, dressing rooms, and treatment rooms located on each
ward. There are 572 beds assigned to care of General Surgical
Within the building, there are also the operating rooms,
consisting of twelve operating suites, six anesthesia induc-
tion rooms, Cardio-Pulmonary Function Laboratory, a Tis-
sue Bank, auxiliary X-ray facilities, observation rooms for
monitoring instruments used during special types of surgery,
Recovery Ward, Lecture Room, television viewing space,
Morgue, Dictation Room, Receiving Ward, Central Issue
Room for sterile supplies, sleeping spaces for doctors on
watch, and dining spaces.
A well-equipped Animal Research Laboratory is available
in another building, and all residents spend a part of their
training in this section. There is a well-equipped and cen-
tralized Medical Library in which all up-to-date surgical
literature is available.
The Chiefs of Services and Heads of Departments are, for
the most part, Diplomates of their Specialty Boards. In addi-
tion, the Department has a number of well-known consultants
who are leaders in their particular surgical specialty. The
consultants are present for the following Departments: Gen-
CAPTAIN JOSEPH M. HANNER, MC, USN
Chief, Surgical Service
eral Surgery, Anatomy, Oncology, Thoracic Surgery, Anesth-
esiology, and Neurosurgery.
The general function of the Surgical Service is to provide
inpatient surgery and treatment for active service person-
nel, veterans, dependents, retired personnel and, when re-
quired, civilian humanitarian cases. In addition, consultants
are provided for all departments of the hospital, as well as a
number of Outpatient Clinics. Other responsibilities of the
Department include the control and issue of supplies from
the Central Issue Section, Oxygen Therapy, administration
of the Receiving Ward, Training Program, Tumor Board,
and Anesthesiology for all patients.
The Thoracic Surgery Department consists of 48 beds,
of which 14 are in private rooms. Patients cared for on the
Thoracic Service include officers, enlisted personnel, vet-
erans, retired individuals, and dependent females and children.
The Department is assigned two operating rooms in the
main operating suite. These two rooms are especially de-
signed and equipped with special devices necessary to chest
surgery. ln addition, there is a large space adjacent to these
two rooms which is equipped with monitoring devices perti-
nent to pulmonary and cardiac surgery. Also, a fully equipped
Cardio-pulmonary Function Laboratory and Tissue Bank are

located by the main operating suites. An Animal Laboratory
is available where research problems are conducted.
Emphasis is placed on a Heart-Lung Apparatus which is
used in the cardiac surgery section. The pump oxygenator
has created a number of research problems which are perti-
nent to the department, and are important in future control
of cardiac surgery. As a center for pulmonary and cardiac
surgery, major clinical problems in pulmonary and cardiac
pathology are referred here from various areas in the United
States and the world.
The Plastic Surgery Department consists of 40 beds. The
Department has excellent facilities to diagnose and treat all
types of Plastic Surgery cases of male enlisted personnel.
Separate facilities are available for hospitalization of pediat-
ric, female, and officer personnel cases. Surgical procedures
are carried out in the main operating suite four days a week,
with an average of 75 to 80 operations per month. Minor
surgical procedures are scheduled twice weekly and are
carried out in the treatment room on the Plastic Surgery
ward. The Outpatient Clinic consultations are held twice
weekly and average approximately 100 to 110 patients
The Neurosurgery Department consists of 88 beds in ward
spaces and 16 beds in private rooms. The Department is well-
equipped and has facilities for all types of neurosurgical
cases. Full equipment is present for all diagnostic procedures
relative to neurosurgical problems. As the hospital is a center
for Neurosurgery, many cases are transferred here from
nearby and far activities which provides the Service with a
large variety of all types of cases. Many clinical research
problems result from such a large variety of cases, hence,
several hours weekly are devoted by the staff in the Animal
The Training Program includes training of the interns on
a rotational pattern, and an organized program for a four
year residency, The Surgical Service for the interns includes
sixteen weeks, in which the individual has experience and
training in Urology, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Otolaryn-
gology, but the major emphasis is placed upon General Sur-
gery. lt is desired that the individual learn sufficient surgi-
cal technique to enable him to successfully cope with common
emergencies. The intern training includes instruction and
experience in Anesthesiology.
SECRETARIAL GROUP: Shirley F. Johnsong Rita A. Laferriereg Ar
delle M. Petter Csupervisorlg Aileen M. Eaton.
The objective in the Residency Training Program is to
develop medical officers in the field of General Surgery so
that they may be capable of performing adequate surgical
treatments when necessary in any future duty assignments.
In addition, it is the purpose of the Department to prepare
and train candidates for examinations for certification by the
American Board of Surgery, and for membership in the
American College of Surgeons. The program has been ap-
proved by the American Board of Surgery, and it fulfills all
requirements for certification.
The Teaching Program centers around the Ward Medical
Officer, who is under the direct supervision of the Chief of
Surgery. The Training Program of each resident conforms to
the requirements of various specialty Boards, the Council on
Medical Education and Hospitals, the American Medical As-
sociation, and the American College of Surgeons. The resi-
dents are rotated every three months, during the four year
program, to provide full participation infall surgical depart-
ments in related activities. Basic Science lectures and labora-
tory work are given as fundamental in General Surgery.
In each branch of the Department training is given in sur-
gical diagnostic procedures, pre- and post-operative care,
and operative techniques. When the resident is deemed
capable, he is allowed to perform surgical procedures com-
mensurate with his skill and experience, under the supervision
and with the assistance of a trained surgeon. The plan is for
the work and responsibility of the resident in each succeed-
ing year to correlate with that of the preceding year, and
for the nature of the work to be of progressive character and
type. All residents attend organized conferences and clinics.
Clinics held weekly include Tumor Boards, General Surgi-
cal Conference, Basic Science Lectures, Clinical Pathological
Conferences, Staff Meetings, Gastrointestinal Conferences,
and Surgical Grand Rounds.
Each resident, when reporting to duty, is encouraged as
soon as possible to select a topic for research, which may be
clinical, or one that is conducted in the Animal Laboratory.
The results of the research are usually presented in a written
thesis which, in most cases, is published, and presented to
local and national surgical organizations.

MEDICAL ER ICE
The Department of Medicine is divided into the following
divisions: General Medicine Cnine wardsl, Sick Officers'
Quarters fMedicinelg Cardio-Vascular Service fHeart Sta-
tion and Cardio-Pulmonary Function Laboratorylg Allergy
Service, and Radioactive Isotope Laboratory. I
The Medical Service is composed of wards and clinics in
which patients with general medical diseases are cared for.
These diseases, broadly speaking, are those in which no sur-
gical treatment is indicated. lncluded are pneumonia, the
contagious diseases, leukemias, kidney diseases, ulcers, heart
disease, hypertension, and diabetes. There is one ward set
aside for the care of women with these diseases. Approxi-
mately 25 per cent of the patients hospitalized are cared for
by this service.
Among the specialized branches of the Medical Service
are the Cardio-Vascular Service and the Allergy Service.
Under Cardio-Vascular is the Heart Station located on the
4th deck of Building 9. Here, all outpatients and inpatients
with cardiac disease or hypertension are studied. Diagnosis
is established and recommendations as to treatment made, to
be carried out by the referring physician, or by the members
of the Heart Station itself. lt is in this station that the electro-
cardiograms for the entire hospital are performed. At the
present time, approximately 1700 electrocardiograms are per-
formed by the Heart Station per month.
The Cardio-Pulmonary Function Laboratory is equipped
to measure the breathing function of patients referred for
such examination. In addition, this laboratory performs the
cardiac catheterizations for the entire hospital. At the pres-
CAPTAIN JOHN E. GORMAN, MC, USN
Chief Medical Service
ent time, one to two cardiac catheterizations are performed
each week. It is by means of these catheterizations that diag-
nostic studies are performed to allow diagnosis of various
cardiac disabilities, and determinations made as to the ad-
visability of surgery in these cardiac cases.
The Allergy Service sees approximately 765 patients each
month. The Service performs tests for the diagnosis of vari-
ous allergies, and upon the establishment of the diagnosis
as to the causative agents of various allergic diseases, manu-
factures extracts and administers them to patients.
The Endocrinology and Radioactive Isotope Laboratory
supervises the treatment of patients with diseases of the en-
docrine glands. This includes patients with thyroid disease,
disorders of the adrenal glands, and patients with pituitary
abnormalities. In addition to the care of these patients, this
Laboratory supervises the administration of radioactive iso-
topes for the diagnosis and treatment of various disorders.
The chief radioactive isotopes in use at the present time are.
Iodine 131, Phosphorus CP-321, Gold QAU-1981, Iron fFe-
59J, Radium fRa-2261, Chromium fCr-513, Yettrium KY-901,

The Urology Service provides and coordinates services
relative to the examination, diagnosis, management and dis-
position of the patients with disorders of the urinary and
male genital tracts. It is divided into a Clinical Branch and
an Instruction Branch.
The Clinical Branch is required to staff and equip facili
ties to manage inpatients with any type of urology disorder,
it manages an outpatient clinic, and provides consultation
service for other Services in the Hospital. The branch also
maintains cystoscopic examining rooms and radiographic
facilities for diagnosis and treatment of urological disorders.
It also staffs and equips a room in the main operating suite
where all types of urological surgery are handled.
The Instruction Branch provides a training program for
residents. This Branch maintains a liaison with civilian
consultants and other urologists, and provides instruction and
practical experience in urology for internes.
The residency program consists of one year in general
surgery and three years of urology proper. An additional two
years of full-time practice in urology must be completed be-
fore a candidate may apply for the American Board of
Urology technicians are essential to a proper functioning
service. They perform many extremely important tasks such
as taking X-rays, developing film, setting up the operating
and cystoscopic rooms, assisting in surgery and performing
laboratory tests. They contribute greatly to the success of
the service. Their period of training is six months, and those

that pass all examinations are designated as URT's.
The Urology service is the largest military or federal
urology unit. It is an excellent teaching facility because of
the large source of patients in the two age groups requiring
most care, namely, the retired population, the Naval Train-
ing Center and Marine Corps Recruit Depot.
Some of the figures showing the volume of work ac-
complished during the last year are as follows:
Hospital admissions .................. .. ...,.. 1,404
Average daily patient census ....... .. 72
Major operations ................,.. 377
Minor operations .,.......................... ...,. ..,. 4 , 144
Intravenous pyelograms performed .,.... ...... . 2,521
Cystoscopies ..................................... ,....... 1 ,466
Outpatient consultation ................,.....,,. ..........,.,, 7,219
The Urology staff and patients are greatly indebted to the
very capable service rendered by the members of the Nurs-
ing Corps on duty in the clinic and the wards. A great many
of the urology patients are elderly, requiring a large amount
of extra nursing care. The patients are given everything pos-
sible to facilitate their comfort and recovery.

In 1949 the Neuropsychiatric Service of the U. S. Naval
Hospital, San Diego, California, became a separate and dis-
tinct Service, the Chief of the Service reporting directly to
the Executive Officer and the Commanding Officer of the
The Service is divided into three Branches, Psychiatry,
Neurology and Clinical Psychology.
Throughout the many years that the Service has been in
existence, the physical facilities for the housing of the patients
have been scattered over the Compound and the services
provided have been varied. This was dependent upon the rise
and fall in the patient census during the two major armed
conflicts of recent years. It was not until January, 1958, that
the Neuropsychiatric Service was able to be housed under
one roof, the 36 Building at the south end of the beautiful
This move of the scattered facilities into the building
brought about a centralization of the Neuropsychiatric ad-
ministrative offices, an admission ward, the closed wards,
the Neurology Clinic and wards, the Electroencephalography
section, the convalescent and rehabilitation psychiatric wards,
the offices of Clinical Psychology, and also made possible
space for occupational therapy in the building, as well as a
conference and study room for the Neuropsychiatric profes-
The Neuropsychiatric Service at this hospital is charged
with providing a diagnostic and testing service, the care, cus-
tody, treatment and disposition of patients with mental or
emotional disorders and nervous system diseases.
The Psychiatric Branch of the Service specifically provides
observation, care and treatment of mental and emotional dis-
orders, including the functional and organic psychoses, the
psychoneuroses, the character and behavior patterns, dis-
orders of intelligence and transient personality disorders. An
open admission ward, as well as a maximum security psy-
chiatric ward are maintained for observation, care and treat-
ment of all patients admitted with a psychiatric diagnosis. A
graduated open ward environment and a rehabilitation pro-
gram are maintained for patients recovering from acute
psychiatric disorders. Patients who are in need of prolonged
specialized treatment are transferred to the designated Spe-
cial Psychiatric Treatment Centers.
The records of patients not being returned to duty are
processed to appear before an appropriate Medical Board
with the proper recommended disposition. A Neuropsychiatric
Record Office is maintained for preparation of medical rec-
ords and the necessary reports.

DE TAL ERVICE
The Dental Service is an integral component of the
hospital command. It is headed by the Chief of the Dental
Service who is a board-certified oral surgeon with teaching
experience. The officer-staff comprises an allowance of eight
dental officers, all of whom are experienced, regular Navy,
The enlisted-staff includes a chief petty officer and a
crew of fifteen trained dental technicians. Four members of
this crew are qualified as dental prosthetic technicians, and
they are the skilled laboratory technicians who fabricate
varied types of dental appliances.
All phases of dentistry excepting orthodontia fustraighten-
ing of teethwl are practiced in the Dental Service. Teeth
are filled when required with precious metals, semi-precious
metals, or plastic materials as best indicated to meet the
individual need. Hopelessly degenerated teeth are removed
under local or general anesthesia. Missing teeth are replaced
by bridgework, partial dentures or full dentures.
All dental technicians receive particular instruction in
providing oral prophylaxis fucleaning teethvj. This service
is given by the dental technician under the supervision of the
doctor. ln addition to assisting the doctor during dental
operation, dental technicians take X-ray exposures and
process the films for the doctor,s examination.
One of the busy branches of the Dental Service in a large
hospital, like this, is oral surgery. This department provides
for the extraction of teeth and for the surgical care of varied
diseases of the mouth. Also, a large number of fractured jaw-
bones are treated here over a year's time. It is not unusual
to see from 20 to 25 fractured jaw cases in the dental Ward
at all times. Specialists with particular training in oral
surgery are assigned to this department.
The major objective of dentistry is to salvage teeth. Some-
times this is done by simply filling a tooth after all of the
decay has been thoroughly removed. But at other times,
when dental decay is markedly advanced, it may be necessary
to devitalize the tooth Curemove the nervewl in order to save
the tooth before filling it. Salvaging such "dead teethv for
CAPTAIN THEODORE A. LESNEY, DC, USN
Chief, Dental Service
many years of normal usage is a specialty of dentistry known
Since some teeth are lost from diseases involving the gum
tissues, rather than from decay, specialized care is required
in efforts at saving such teeth. This specialty within dentistry
is called Periodontia, and the periodontist treats upyorrheav
and such other dental diseases as cause teeth to become
loose. Hackneyed expressions like 'fthe teeth are OK but the
gums have gotta gofi are not wholly without truth. Often-
times, the periodontist does find it necessary to remove
chronically diseased gum tissue in order to prevent the loss
of bone that holds the teeth firmly in place.
Most human beings lose some or many of their teeth
throughout a lifetime. If only a few teeth are lost, it may
be possible to span such a space with a dental Hbridgef'
Dental bridgework is time consuming and it is an exact
lf several, but not all, teeth are lost, it may be possible to
replace the missing teeth with partial dentures. Such ap-
pliances are remarkably comfortable and are retained in
position through clasps that engage some of the remaining
sound and functional teeth.
Of course, when all of the teeth have been lost, the patient
requires full dentures. Modern techniques in this field permit
the fabrication of natural-looking dentures with a great de-
gree of masticating efficiency. Sometimes, one of the Iront
false teeth in an artificial denture is intentionally stained,
or a gold filling may be placed in it, so as to resemble one
of the patient's natural teeth, and thereby retain the "natural"
appearance of the artificial denture. The prosthodontist and
his team of dental prosthetic technicians are specialists in the
art of replacing missing teeth.
Many new and specialized techniques in modern dentistry
have dictated the need for post graduate study, further train-
ing and experience-so that today the Mall around dentist"
is becoming as rare as is the "all around surgeonf' Dentistry
has been required to provide specialists such as oral surgeons,
prosthodontists, endodontists, periodontists, and orthodontists
-to treat particular dental problems that frequently require
more than the usual knowledge of dentistry. All such spe-
cialists fexcept orthodontistsl are available within the Naval
Service-and more specifically, within this hospital.
Every year, two dental interns and one oral surgery resi-
dent receive training within the Dental Service of this com-
mand. The interns are recent graduates of dental schools and
have been licensed to practice dentistry in one or more of
the States of this country. They receive this intern training
so as to better prepare themselves to provide the best pos-
sible dental services for members of the Armed Forces. The
oral surgery resident is an experienced dentist undergoing
extensive training for ultimate specialization and certifica-
tion by the American Board of Oral Surgery.
It is generally agreed that the best dentistry in the world
is practiced in the United States, and the U. S. Naval Dental
Service is highly respected by civilian, component societies
of the American Dental Association. Every effort is exerted
toward providing the best possible dental care for members
of the Armed Forces-and the soldier, sailor, marine and
airman can get this service from the combined efforts of
dental officers and their dental technicians stationed with
our troops throughout the world.

The Orthopedic Service cares for patients with injuries,
diseases, degenerative processes and neoplasms affecting the
motor skeletal system. This comprises bones, joints, muscles
and their component parts such as tendons and tendon
sheathsg joint capsules, ligaments, cartilages and synovial
Congenital and developmental anomalies of the compon-
ent parts are of frequent occurrence. Abnormalities of gait,
posture and appearance provoke frequent consultation. Sur-
gery, splinting, bracing, protective or corrective casting, spe-
cial shoeing as well as provision of artificial limbs are
modalities of orthopedic treatment.
The department is subdivided into male, female and
pediatric services. These in turn are subdivided into officer,
enlisted, service women and dependent Women.

Inpatient care is also provided at this activity for Veterans'
Beneficiaries and "on the jobn injuries to civilian employees.
A tremendous work load is contributed by the high per-
centage of retired service personnel and their families in this
area. Medicare does not cover the retired personnel.
This is the Navy's biggest hospital and the patient load is
reflected in the Orthopedic Department. An average daily
census of inpatients is in excess of 225. A minimum of 700
outpatients are seen each month.

CAPTAIN JOHN W. KOETT, MC, USN
Chief, Radiology Service
Radiology Service is divided into three basic functional
components: Diagnostic, Therapeutic and Training Sections.
The Diagnostic section provides all types of X-ray examina-
tions. When a ward medical officer refers a patient to the
department for examination, many persons may not realize
it, but the X-ray technician who takes the films is following
a procedure prescribed by the radiologist-a medical officer
with post graduate radiological training. The radiologist's
interpretation of these X-ray films Qoften supplemented by
his personal and fluoroscopic examinationj is an important
part of the information required by the referring medical
officer for diagnosis.
Some specialized functions of the diagnostic section are
examinations of the spinal cord for tumors, herniated discs
and other abnormalities. Here, a spinal tap is made and
the withdrawn fluid is replaced by a dye. This dye casts a
shadow on the X-ray films and fluoroscopic screen, thereby
helping the radiologist and neurosurgeon to locate the ab-
normal site. The procedure is commonly known as a "myelo-
Another specialized examination is an nangiocardiographic
studyfll This is a study of the different chambers of the
heart. It differs from the "myelogram" in that the dye is
injected into a vein, whence it promptly flows into the heart.
At this precise moment rapid X-ray films of the heart are
made, outlining the individual chambers. ln this connection,
of special interest is a Swedish-make X-ray machine capable
of taking views in two planes on a continuous roll of film,
not too dissimilar in principal to the rapid exposure method
found in ordinary movie cameras. The roll of developed
film obtained from this device provides valuable information
to the cardiologist, surgeon and radiologist in arriving at a
more accurate diagnosis, particularly in suspected congenital
The Therapeutic section is responsible for treatment of
all patients presenting abnormal pathological states, from
benign to malignant conditions. "Cobalt bomb,', radium,
X-ray and radioactive isotope therapies are available in the
department for daily use.
Of interest is the training section. The department is
approved for a full 3 years' residency training for medical
officers in radiology as approved by the American Board
of Radiology. The Department also maintains a training
school for enlisted personnel, approved by the Bureau of
Medicine and Surgery. Upon satisfactory completion of a
one-year training period, the student receives an official
Though the radiologist and X-ray technician may frequently
figure in our lives, many of us remain unfamiliar with their

Chief, Nursing Service
NURSI G SER ICE
The Nursing Service makes an important contribution in
the care of the patients.
Nursing itself is multivalued. It deals with healing, pre-
vention and rehabilitation for patients and families, yet it is
seldom a solitary performance.
The total plan for Nursing Service to the patients entails
not only cooperation among the nursing personnel, but with
every phase of hospital service and allied workers, as Well as
community agencies. By working with all services, direct
nursing care is performed with the patient and indirect
nursing care is performed away from the patient but in his
behalf-totaling comprehensive nursing care.
Nursing is recognized in large dimensions, being one of
the largest services in any hospital. ln administration it
involves a variety of personnel including nonprofessional
personnel needing the direction that will ultimately be car-
ried on to the patient.
Many factors and many changes call for continuous analysis
and evaluation of Nursing Services in order to formulate
and recommend policies and procedures for the improvement
of patient care.
In and for specific working situations Nursing Service
provides personnel, professional and nonprofessional, with
programs of preparation. Scheduled orientations, on-the-job
training, continued education and management development
contribute to the educational needs of a wide Variety of per-
sonnel. The immediate consumers of the programs reap
many benefits, but the ultimate beneficiaries are the patients
who are served with increased confidence and performance.
Nursing Service is not only performance in skills and
technics. Nursing is care of people, understanding of
people, in an operation which involves comfort, safety,
therapeutic effectiveness, economy of materials, organization
and adaptivity of planning.
,lust as the Nursing Service is concerned with actual patient
care, it is concerned with the problems encountered. All
nursing activities, administration, supervision, Ward manage-
ment and education benefit by the studies and programs in
research which Nursing Service carries out to formulate the
basis for the best in patient care.
Analysis of Nursing Service leads one to believe that this
is not just one service but an interwoven complexity of
services. Yet each part has a tie. And Nursing Service
through its functions serves, "That the Nursing Needs of
People May Be Met.

DEPE DE TS SERVICE
The Dependents Service at this hospital renders outpatient
and inpatient service for eligible dependents of Armed
Forces personnel, both active duty and retired. While the
majority of patients are dependents of Navy and Marine
Corps, a considerable number are dependents of other uni-
formed services. Most of the patients seen are from the
San Diego area, although many are referred from other
Armed Forces activities throughout Southern California,
Arizona and Nevada.
Dependents Service cooperates with and is assisted by
every service and division of the hospital. An average of
1,000 patients present themselves for treatment each day.
The majority are seen in Buildings 22 and 38, in Pediatrics,
Obstetrics, Gynecology, Surgery, Medicine, Orthopedics, En-
docrine, General Clinic, lnoculation Clinic, and Screening
and Emergency. Large numbers are referred to specialty
clinics in other parts of the hospital, such as Eye, ENT,
Dermatology, Chest Service, Proctology, Urology and Neuro-
The Administrative Branch is headed by the Adminis-
trative Assistant to the Chief, Dependents Service. It provides
an appointment system for dependent outpatient treatment
in the various clinics of the hospital. It maintains all depend-
ent outpatient records, transmits to and requests from other
service activities, private hospitals and doctors, records of
dependent patients. It handles medical insurance claims for
dependent patients and departmental correspondence and
compiles statistics for the service. It performs administrative
procedures in regard to admission of dependent patients,
averaging 700 per month. It maintains liaison with public
health authorities, Red Cross and other county and federal
agencies in matters pertaining to dependents. It assigns,
supervises and maintains discipline of enlisted and civilian
personnel throughout the Dependent Service.
The Administrative Branch, in short, performs all the
administrative procedures that assist the flow of dependent
patients through the inpatient and outpatient facilities.
The Administrative Assistant is aided by two HMC's,
civilian clerical and stenographic personnel, and corpsmen.
The Emergency Clinic consists of 5 rooms, which include
1 surgical, 1 gynecological, 1 recovery room, and 2 medical
rooms. It operates on a 24--hour basis for emergency care
of dependents and averages between 5,000 and 6,000 pa-
tients a month.
A Screening Clinic is maintained during regular working
hours for the purpose of expediting the flow of patients by
referral to speciality clinics or to Emergency, and for treat-
ment of minor complaints. This is staffed by one or two
residents, detailed from other services, and a Navy nurse.
Two General Clinics were established for the treatment of
non-emergent conditions not requiring speciality clinic treat-
ment. Patients are seen by appointment by two staff medical
officers, and the monthly average of visits is slightly over
The lnoculation Clinic gives immunizations, routine, over-
seas and polio, as well as therapeutic inoculations. Immuniza-
tions in 1957 averaged 4,000 per month, and therapeutic
inoculations, 600. This Clinic is staffed by a Navy nurse and
There are two Internal Medicine Clinics f5V2 days a
weekl, Surgery Clinic Q5 days a weekl and Orthopedic Clinic
f2 afternoons a weekl, staffed by medical officers of the
respective services and administratively controlled by De-
X-ray and Laboratory facilities for dependents are located
in the basement of Building 38. These are staffed by members
of X-ray and Laboratory Service.

The Family Hospital located at South Field, U. S. Naval
Air Station in Coronado, was put in operation in August,
It was financed by private subscriptions, the "taken from
the slot machines in the Officer's Club on the Naval Air
Station and donations from some of the ships stationed in
the Pacific area. There was also a small hospital fee which
was paid by the patients.
In 1944 when the Family Hospital was taken over by the
Navy it was placed under Civil Service and was a well
equipped and solvent hospital with a large surplus in the
bank and in bonds.
In 1951 the Family Hospital was torn down to build more
runways at South Field for the ,Iet Planes and the Family
Hospital was transferred to Bldg. "YN until Bldg. 602 located
just inside the gate on U. S. Naval Air Station could be

Chief, Obstetrics and Gynecology Service
The Obstetrics and Gynecology Service is primarily con-
cerned with the proper care of all Obstetrical and Gynecol-
ogical patients coming under its management and with the
training of Interns and Residents in the specialty of Ob-
stetrics and Gynecology.
The Chief of the Service is normally the Senior Attending
Obstetrician-Gynecologist and is directly responsible to the
Commanding Officer via the Executive Officer for the proper
management of the Service.
The Assistant Chief of the Service is normally the next
Senior Attending Obstetrician-Gynecologist present and is
directly responsible to the Chief of the Service for the proper
and efficient management of both the Obstetrical and Gyne-
The Service consists of both an Inpatient and Outpatient
Section. The Obstetrical Inpatient Section consists of four
well equipped air conditioned delivery rooms and ten labor
beds arranged semiprivately in five rooms. A Recovery Room
is located on the Labor and Delivery Room floor for the
immediate care of puerperal patients and a Recovery Ward is
operated in the general Post Partum Ward area. There are
I0 beds in the Recovery Ward and 28 beds on the Post
Partum Ward. These latter beds are all semi-private in
individual cubicles. A separate ward for antenatal complica-
tions is also maintained. On this ward there are 30 beds and
adequate precautions or isolation of contaminated cases are
carried out when required. The nursing personnel on all
obstetrical wards are separate from those assigned to general
hospital nursing functions.
There are 32 beds for the care of gynecological conditions.
These beds are generally in great demand due to the Very
adequate amount of clinical material available for teaching.
The Obstetrical Division consists of both an Inpatient and
Outpatient Service. The Inpatient Service includes the Labor
and Delivery Room Suite, the Abnormal Obstetrical Ward
and the Post Partum Wardg the Outpatient Service includes
the New and Old Prenatal Clinic, the Post Partum Clinic
and the Abnormality Prenatal Clinic.
The Obstetrical Division is normally administrated by a
Senior Attending Staff Obstetrician who is responsible for
the performance of the Division.
The General Prenatal Clinic is supervised and operated
by the Head of the Obstetrical Division and his house staff
with the help of all currently assigned attending Staff Ob-
stetricians and Obstetrics and Gynecology Outpatient Clinic
Service. It functions as a combined Attending and Resident
The Gynecology Division consists of both an inpatient and
outpatient service. The inpatient service is both medical and
surgical and is called the Gynecology Ward, Building 38-2.
The outpatient service includes both Resident and Attending
Staff Gynecology Clinics. The Gynecology Division is admin-
istered by a Senior Attending Staff Gynecologist.
The Outpatient Service consists of the New Prenatal Clinic,
Old Prenatal Clinic, Abnormality Prenatal Clinic, and Post
Gynecology Clinic consists of Walk-In Gynecology Clinic,
Cancer Detection Clinic, Sterility Clinic, Gynecology En-
docrine Clinic, Gynecology Tumor Board, and Presurgery
The secondary mission of this Service is to train Interns
and Residents in the fundamentals of good obstetrical and
gynecological practice and to afford ample opportunity for
residents to become eligible for certification by the American
Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology after the completion of
three years of satisfactory supervised training.
The training program is approved for three years by the
American Medical Association, American Hospital Associa-
tion, American College of Surgeons, American College of
Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and American Board of Ob-
stetrics and Gynecology. During this period of training the
Resident rotates through a planned series of assignments in
both Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as spending a mini-
mum of six months on General Pathology. An opportunity
is also available for elective work in Urology and General
The Interns on Obstetrics are responsible for all histories
and physical examinations of labor patients and accomplish
a minimum of 12 uncomplicated deliveries under the super-
vision of the Resident Staff. They also complete all labor
records and charts and are responsible for all initial new-
born physical examinations and circumcisions.
The Interns on Gynecology are responsible for the histories
and physical examinations on all Gynecology admissions and
perform minor surgical procedures under supervision of the
The First Year Residents are normally four in number
and in the event of a great influx of patients or a shortage of
Interns they assist in writing admission histories and phys-
icals. They examine all unusual cases on the wards.
The Second Year Residents are normally four in number.
They supervise the activities of the First Year Residents
under their immediate jurisdiction. They write an admission
summary and progress note on all patients on the Service to
which they are assigned. They assure that all interns, his-
tories and physicals and First Year Residents' notes are
properly written on each patient's record.
The Third Year Residents are also four in number. The
Senior Third Year Resident is designated the Chief Resident
and is responsible for the supervision of all residents junior
to him and for the management and care of all patients on
the Service. The Third Year Residents are expected to visit
all patients on their assigned wards daily.
They are responsible for the closing out of all charts on
their wards and personally countersign all discharge sum-
maries. They keep the Chief Resident informed of all ad-
missions and discharges on the Service.

The Pediatric Service is divided into three main branches,
the Pediatric wards, Pediatric nurseries, and Pediatric out-
There are two complete adjoining pediatric wards. Each
has its own nurses, assigned staff and facilities.
One 29-bed ward is devoted to the care of medical prob-
lems Cor the strictly pediatric patienti, with the exception of a
separately enclosed nursery area which handles all bassinette
and incubator-sized problem cases regardless of their diag-
nosis. This ward has one isolation room for semi-contagion.
It also contains a treatment room for special diagnostic or
The other pediatric ward of 22 beds is devoted to the
general or specialized surgical services. Each service has an
allotted number of available beds according to their needs.
There is a separate room with separate full-time nursing
facilities for tonsillectomy patients. There is also a separate
room for infected surgical cases.
Both wards are well-equipped with necessary facilities,
such as piped-in oxygen, incubators, croupettes and other
special equipment. Both wards have assigned residents and
interns, supervised by a staff man.
There is a main nursery which handles all routine full-
term newborns. It is divided into an admitting room plus
two other rooms. Routine circumcisions are done here. This
nursery handles 30-plus newborns, dependent on need.
The nearby premature nursery, which has a separate staff,
is divided into five areas, one of which is used solely by the
staff and two of which are used for isolation of suspect cases.
It is supervised by one or more specially trained nurses.
There is space available to care for I4 premature infants,
although this number exceeds the usual census.
Both nurseries have an adequate number of incubators,
isolettes and rocker-beds. One pediatric resident, assisted by
an intern and supervised by a staff man, is in charge of both
A large and well-staffed pediatric outpatient clinic is main-
tained in a separate area. It includes seven examining rooms,
plus two staff offices with examining facilities. One full-time
staff man, one part-time staff man, one or two residents and
two to three interns maintain the care of the clinic. Residents
or interns assigned to other pediatric branches may be added
as needed, providing it does not interfere with their other
duties. One hundred fifty to 200 patients a day are seen here,
by appointment or on a walk-in basis.
In addition, there is a separately located well-baby clinic

facilities and geographic location, acts as a diagnostic and
treatment center for pediatric problem cases from other serv-
ice activities covering a very broad area. Along with the
very large number of service dependents in the San Diego
area, this provides the service with a continual supply of
excellent teaching cases as well as an abundance of the more
routine type of case. All but a selected few patients under 13
years of age are admitted to the Pediatric Serviceggiving

FOOD ERVICF, DIVISION
Occupying the entire first-basement level of the new surgi-
cal wing, the Food Service Division is the largest naval hos-
pital food service facility in the United States, preparing and
serving more than 2,500,000 meals and special diets annually
for the patients and staff of the hospital and the students of
the Hospital Corps School.
The division, which operates under the direction of a
Medical Service Corps officer, consists of three main
The Administration and Stores Branch orders, receives,
inspects, stores, issues, and accounts for approximately
351,000,000 worth of perishable and non-perishable provisions
each year. Under the supervision of a Chief Medical Service
Corps warrant officer the personnel of this branch also sup-
port the operation of the divisionis other branches by pro-
viding essential services in many phases of the divisionis
Headed by ia Chief Quarterman CCommissaryD and staffed
completely by career Civil Service employees, the Food Prep-
aration and Service Branch is responsible for all aspects of
food preparation and service, except those relating directly
to special diets. This branch, by far the largest in the divi-
sion, operates the main galley, butcher shop, bake shop,
salad unit, vegetable preparation room, four dining rooms,
two large dishwashing pantries, and the ward food service
The planning, preparation, and service of special diets is
accomplished by the Therapeutic Diet Branch under the
supervision of qualified Nurse Corps and Medical Service
Corps dietitians who maintain liaison with the professional

Chief, Food Service Division
staff of the hospital on all matters of diet therapy and who
also provide instruction in dietary planning and treatment to
patients and staff members requiring it. The therapeutic diet
kitchen, which is located adjacent to the main galley and
staffed 'by Civil Service employees, prepares and serves an
average of 1,000 therapeutic diets of various types each day.
The work of the division extends virtually around-the-
clock, seven days a week. A full meal is prepared and served
at midnight to the seventy members of the hospital night
crew. Preparations for breakfast begin as early as 0400
daily and employees of the division work as late as 2000
following service of the evening meal.
One of the most interesting features of the main galley is
the ward tray assembly table where, using assembly line
techniques, employees assemble from 800 to 1,000 regular
and therapeutic diet trays each meal for delivery to the
wards by means of fifty tray carts.
A monetary ration allowance for provisions, prescribed by
the Secretary of the Navy, governs the amount of money
which may be spent for the food used in the regular and
special diets and the supplementary nourishments which are
furnished to patients on the wards.
The division has undergone a complete reorganization dur-
ing the past year and a complete physical relocation. Five
separate kitchens were closed and their functions assumed
by the central galley and the ward food service was con-
verted from a decentralized bulk food cart system to the
centralized tray assembly operation.

Public Works Officer
The Public Works Division is the engineering, maintenance
and construction organization of the hospital. lt employs I50
civilians, four enlisted men, the Public Works Officer and
In order that adequate medical care for patients can be
assured, it is essential that electricity, heat and water are
available at all times and that hospital buildings and equip-
ment are kept in a proper, safe working condition.
Ambulances and other official motor vehicles must be
properly maintained and operated safely.
Besides the busy present, there is always the future to
plan for. Many weeks each year are spent under the direction
of the Public Works Officer in assessing the needs for build-
ings and improvements, replacements and major repairs.
Each year a submission to the Navy Department must be
made of a long range plan for major improvements. Upon
this plan depends the money which will be granted by Con-
gress to carry out these improvements.
During the past two years a Controlled Maintenance Pro-
gram has been implemented. Its purpose is to obtain the
most maintenance for the least cost. It aims to discover and
correct discrepancies while they are still little ones, thus
avoiding costly repairs and disruptions of service. This pro-
gram requires the constant and energetic effort and coopera-
tion of Maintenance Control personnel, supervisors at all
levels, and in fact, everyone in Public Works.
PUBLIC WORKS DIVISION
The Public Works Division has the following branches:
Administrative, Insect and Rodent Control, Maintenance Con-
trol, Building, Utility, Grounds, Transportation and Design.
All these branches, with the exception of the Administrative
and Insect and Rodent Control Branches, are under the direc-
tion of the Foreman Mechanic. He is assisted by the Main-
tenance Scheduler who schedules work to be done by the
shops at a time when men of different trades can be made
available and all necessary material is on hand so that jobs

PECIAL ERVICE DIVISIO
LIEUT. JAMES W. RICHARDSON, MSC, USN
Special Services Officer
The Special Services Division is charged with providing
and administering a well-balanced program of indoor and
outdoor recreation for staff and patient personnel.
The Division is headed by a Medical Service Corps officer
who is assisted by an athletic director, a stenographer-book-
keeper, a property clerk, two librarians, two Station-paper
editors, and several other enlisted personnel, who are well
qualified to perform their share of the various functions of
the Divisions. All personnel are military, except the two
librarians and the stenographer-bookkeeper.
The Division is divided into an Administrative Branch, a
Recreation Branch, a Library Branch and a Property Branch.
The Administrative Branch administers the Recreation
Fund, maintains accounting records on all receipts and dis-
bursements of recreation funds, and accomplishes the neces-
sary clerical procedures for the efficient administration of
The Recreation Branch is charged with administering the
Recreation and Entertainment Program and exercising con-
trol over the use of the Recreation Fund for recreational
purposes. This branch is responsible for periodic shows,
nightly movies and arranging parties for all hands. The
physical fitness program is also administered by this branch.
These activities include the operation of a nine-hole golf
course, two tennis courts, a swimming pool and the hospital
athletic field. Both intramural and varsity sports are in-
cluded in the program.
The Library Branch furnishes patients and staff members
with adequate organized collections of books and other
materials intended for educational, informational, technical,
reference and recreational reading.
The Property Branch maintains prescribed records of all
recreation fund equipment and supplies and maintains an
adequate stock of such materials. Numerous supply and
equipment items are maintained for checking out to author-
ized personnel on a returnable basis. This is a very popular
service in that it obviates the necessity of many personnel
buying items, such as camping equipment.
Many of the programs and activities performed by the
division stem from recommendations submitted by the En-
listed Recreation Committee, which is composed of enlisted
members from the various departments, who represent all en-
listed personnel on the compound. The Committee meets once
each month and submits recommendations to the Recreation
Council which is composed of three officers. The Recreation
Council meets and recommends action on the Enlisted Com-
mitteeis report to the Commanding Officer. This system af-
fords representation to all hands, since each person can voice
his opinions and desires to his committee representative.
Most of the expenses connected with Special Services
functions are paid from the Recreation Fund, which con-
sists of profits derived from the operation of the Navy Ex-
change. Each month the profits from the Navy Exchange
are forwarded to the Navy Ships' Store, Brooklyn, New York,
John H. Jackson, HMC, Athletic Direc-
torg Woody H. Medley, HM1, Petty
Officer in Charge, Mrs. Bessie Hudson,
where apportionments are made between the Ships' Store,
the Bureau of Naval Personnel Central Recreation Fund, and
this hospital. The funds received by the Hospital each month
depend largely on the Navy EXchange's profit as well as on
the number of military personnel attached, quartered or in a
transient status at the Hospital, Hospital Corps School and
Preventive Medicine Unit No. 5. A certain percentage of all
funds received from this source is forwarded to the Eleventh
Naval District- Fund, which is known as the Command Fund.
The Chief of the Division coordinates the Hospital Recrea-
We RWE -W :L-Qisoi , f N .Q
tion Program with that of the Hospital Branch of the Ameri-
can Red Cross in order that the maximum benefit may be
afforded to all eligible personnel.
It is obvious that the Special Services Division plays an
important role in maintaining the desired state of morale of
all hands. It follows that the personnel charged with per-
forming Special Services functions must have a keen under-
standing of the recreational and entertainment needs of
patient and staff personnel in order to administer a successful

The Office of the Counsel provides legal services for the
command, and for active duty and retired military and
naval personnel and their dependents upon request.
This office consists of two main branches, a military law
branch and a civil law branch. It also has a reporting and
secretarial unit whose personnel consists-of two civil service
employees. All other persons assigned for duty in the Office
of the Counsel are members of the naval service.
The officer in charge has dual titles, "legal officer" and
"legal assistance officerf'
The title "legal officerv has application to his being head
of the military law branch. Whether he bears the title of
fclegal assistance officer" or "legal assistance referral offi-
cer" depends upon Whether or not he is a qualified lawyer,
the former title being applicable in the event he is and the
latter being applicable in the event he is not. The incumbent
is a fully qualified attorney.
The function of the military law branch is to handle all
official matters of a legal nature pertinent to the command.
It handles liaison with other military and civilian law en-
forcement agencies, and is responsible for receiving, inter-
viewing, and assisting all persons who come aboard this
station on legal matters, including naval and military in-
vestigating officers, police officers, adjustors, attorneys, and
other individuals in similar capacities.
Likewise, the cases of military personnel attached to this
command, staff and patients, who have been reported for
commission of alleged offenses, are processed through the
military law branch in preparation for disposition by the
LIEUT. COMDR. WOLFGANG E.

commanding officer. The military law branch also prepares
appointing orders for courts-martial and various types of
investigative boards, and prepares such reports and other
correspondence as are necessary to carry out its mission.
At the present time, there is an assistant legal officer as-
signed to the Office of the Counsel for training purposes. He
assists the legal officer in matters over which the military
law branch has cognizance and, in the legal officeris absence,
takes action on such military law matters as he is qualified
to handle. The enlisted members of the military law branch
are under the direct control and supervision of a chief petty
officer whose responsibility it is to see that the Work assign-
ments given by him to those members are carried out, and
to assist in the smooth functioning of this branch.
The function of the civil law branch is to provide legal
assistance for active duty and retired military and naval
personnel and their dependents who have personal legal
problems. By regulation, service personnel who are not law-
yers are prohibited from counseling individuals in respect
to personal legal problems and from rendering any other
legal service ordinarily provided by an attorney. Accordingly,

most of the services provided by the civil law branch are
performed directly by the legal assistance officer. These
include counseling persons in various fields of law, some of
which are domestic relations, injury due to negligent situa-
tions, contracts, federal-state taxation, landlord and tenant
regulations, real estate transactions, agency, wills, partner-
ships, trusts, and negotiable instruments.
Under certain conditions, letters relative to legal disputes
in which they are involved are prepared for the signatures
of the persons seeking legal assistance. The legal assistance
officer may not file pleadings or make court appearances
for such persons or otherwise actively represent them in
legal controversies. ln those occasional instances in which it
appears the services of a civilian attorney are necessary, the
person seeking the legal assistance is advised, after his case
has been discussed with him, to obtain the services of a
civilian lawyer of his own choice or, if he knows none, he is
directed to a civilian agency established for the purpose of
referring persons to civilian lawyers upon request.
The number of persons availing themselves of the services
of the civil law branch has steadily increased in the recent
past, and now averages eighty persons a month. The legal
assistance officer also prepares opinions on various medico-
legal matters for the Command from time to time as the, need
The reporting and secretarial unit, as its name implies,
furnishes to both the military law branch and civil law
branch all clerical services. This includes the taking, trans-
cribing and typing of records of courts-martial and of investi-
gative proceedings and hearings. Also, all correspondence
initiated by the officer in charge of the Office of the Counsel
and all legal documents prepared for persons who have
sought assistance from the civil law branch, are dictated to
and typed by personnel of this unit.
Mission and History of the U. S.
Naval Hospital Corps School
The primary mission of the Hospital Corps School is to
train selected men in the basic duties of the Hospital Corps.
The present Hospital Corps School was established at the
U. S. Naval Hospital, San Diego, California, on 1 September
1928 and operated until April 1935, when it was placed in
an inactive status. ln April, 1935, the school was re-activated
and has been the only Hospital Corps School in continuous
operation since that time.
On December 7, 1941, the school was located in Building
119 on the hospital reservation. It had a student body of
327, and the staff consisted of six male officers, four nurse
corps officers, and seventeen enlisted men.
In January, 1942, the school was moved to Buildings 211
and 219 in the hospital annex of Balboa Park. During 1942,
the average number of students was increased to 616 and
6,476 hospital corpsmen were graduated that year. In 1943,
the average number of students increased to 1,3003 9,544
were received and 8,918 graduated.
The year 1944 brought many changes to the school. To
meet the needs of a rapidly growing organization, the school
was again moved to Unit No. 3 of the hospital, which was
well suited to the needs of an expanding school, consisting
of 33 acres of park land in Balboa Park. Five former exposi-
tion buildings were utilized to house administrative offices
and berth a majority of the personnel. One tent section was
retained to house approximately one thousand men. Five ad-
ditional buildings, built while this area was occupied, were
utilized as heads, showers, commissary, and mess-halls.
Thirty-two temporary buildings were moved into the area
and equipped as classrooms. During this year, a total of
10,245 students were received and 8,897 graduated.
In July, 1944, the Hospital Corps School, Great Lakes,
Illinois, was closed and 456 students were transferred here
from that school command to complete their course of in-
1n 1945, the school reached its peak enrollment, with an
average of approximately 3,400 students on board. During
this year, 13,332 students were enrolled and 14,907 were
graduated. The staff at that time consisted of eighteen male
officers, thirty Nurse Corps officers, 200 enlisted men, and
In 1946 the average strength dropped to approximately
600 due to demobilization. In J une, 1946, the school vacated
its quarters in Balboa Park and moved to its present loca-
tion on the hospital reservation. From 1 January 1947 to 1
July 1948, the average student strength dropped to 337, and
the staff was reduced to six male officers, five nurses, eighteen
enlisted men and five civilians.
In February, 1949, enlisted women began reporting for
instruction. They were trained under a co-educational plan
until August, 1953, when all basic training of enlisted women
was undertaken by the Hospital Corps School, Bainbridge,
Maryland. A total of 678 enlisted women were graduated
Since moving to its present location in 1946, the Hospital
Corps School, San Diego, has operated under four different
training schedules: an 8 week schedule consisting of 320
hours of instructiong a 12 week schedule consisting of 480
hours, a 16 week schedule encompassing 640 hours of in-
struction, and a 20 week schedule with 760 hours of in-
At present, the school operates under two schedules, a 16
week course for volunteers, and a 12 week course for reserv-
ists. There is also a 2 week accelerated course for inactive
reservists performing annual training duty.
There are presently 8 classes under instruction, classes
ranging from 45 to 80 students each. Among the students
there are members of friendly foreign services undergoing
instruction. At present, there is a Chief Hospital Corpsman
from the Chinese Navy, and also a Mexican physician. ln the
past, the school has graduated members of the Korean Navy,
Colombian Navy and Peruvian Navy.
During the past year, an average of 1,260 students gradu-
ated. They were transferred to naval hospitals, station hos-
pitals, and large dispensaries, for additional practical train-
ing before going to sea or to duty with the Fleet Marine
The subjects taught are Anatomy and Physiology, Minor
Surgery and First Aid, Preventive Medicine, Principles and
Technics of Patient Care, Materia Medica and Toxicology,
Pharmacy and Metrology, Basic Bacteriology and Elementary
Laboratory Technic, and Radiological Safety. All instructors
are well-qualified graduates of the lnstructor's School, most
of whom have had previous teaching experience.
Instruction in the Principles and Technics of Patient Care
is begun in the first week and continues throughout the six-
teen week curriculum with a total of two hundred hours pro-
vided in didactic instruction and practical experience. A
nurse is assigned to each class and is assisted in demonstra-
tions, supervision of student practice and administration of
examinations by other nurse instructors.
During the first fourteen weeks instruction is confined to
the school but in the fifteenth and sixteenth weeks a total of
six days clinical experience is provided at the naval hospital.
To reinforce the learning experience of the student the nurse
instructor for the class furnishes follow-up ward supervision.
Lectures and lecture-demonstrations embrace the develop-
ment and application of sound principles and associated
skills necessary for giving competent care to the sick through
learned techniques and procedures. Included are: introduc-
tion to concepts of patient care team, admission, transfer and
discharge of patients, baths and bedmakingg vital signs,
charting, administration of medications, oxygen therapy,
use of suction apparatusg diet in health and disease, selected
diagnostic tests, including selected laboratory procedures,

patients with specific diseases requiring special nursing care.
To enable the student to develop manual dexterity and
skill, supervised practice follows demonstration in bed mak-
ing, bed baths, technic for taking temperatures, pulse, res-
piration and blood pressure, administration of oral, sub-
cutaneous and intramuscular injections, surgical aseptic
technic and charting.
Clinical facilities available for practice consist of one
ward with forty bed units and a nursing supply room which
is equipped with such items as dressing carriage, stretchers,
oxygen tent, suction machines and demonstration trays set
up for use in the teaching of nursing procedures, catheteriza-
tion and bladder treatments.
All nineteen nurse instructors hold baccalaureate degrees.
In addition to the above officers, there are 5 male MSC
officers, a chief medical service warrant, and 63 enlisted
men on the staff.
On 9 September 1957, a class "Cn Pharmacy School was
established, with an enrollment of thirty-two hospital corps-
men. Designed to train them in sciences necessary to qualify

The quota for the second class which convenes on 30 June
1958 was established at 35 and there is a strong indication
that future classes will be expanded to sixty.
In March, 1958, the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery au-
thorized the establishment of a class "Bw Advanced Hospital
Corps School, the first class of fifty students to convene in
September, 1958, with an additional fifty students every
three months. The purpose of this six month course is to
give additional training to senior hospital corpsmen, qualify-
ing them for duty independent of a medical officer.
