Emergency Care


Emergency Care is NOT available at Naval Hospital Bremerton.

It is imperative that anyone with a potential threat to loss of life, limb or eyesight go immediately to the nearest Emergency Department - or call 911 – and not travel to Naval Hospital Bremerton (NHB).

An available resource for you to help determine if you should use an Urgent Care Clinic (UCC) OR an Emergency Department (ED) is the Nurse Advice Line (NAL). The NAL is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The nurse will discuss your concerns and provide recommendations for home treatment/care if applicable, and whether the issue should be addressed via an ED or UCC visit. The Nurse Advice Line's toll-free number is 1-800-874-2273, and then select option one.

Conditions that require emergency medical care include:

  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Suicidal or homicidal feeling
  • Compound or open fracture (bone broken in multiple places or protrudes through skin)
  • Convulsions, seizures or loss of consciousness
  • Fever in newborn (less than three months old)
  • Uncontrolled Bleeding
