PORTSMOUTH NAVAL SHIPYARD, Maine – Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNS) hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Naval Branch Health Clinic (NBHC) Portsmouth on Thursday, Jan. 6.

Surgeon General for the U.S. Navy, Rear Admiral Bruce Gillingham and Chief of Staff, Small Market and Stand-Alone Military Treatment Facility Organization for the Defense Health Agency (DHA), Mr. Eric Stringer served as guest speakers for the event.

“The completion of this beautiful military treatment facility is a significant milestone in our journey together with the DHA to enhance the healthcare delivery and readiness in the communities we serve,” said Rear Adm.

It’s their expertise, compassion and mission-dedication that will bring this facility to life and will provide patient-centered medical care to all of its beneficiaries.”
