The Navy Eyes Replacing Its Hospital Ships With A Fleet of Smaller Medical Vessels

Recommended Posts

As the U.S. Navy considers retiring one or both of its purpose-built hospital ships, it has established a formal team to examine whether a larger number of smaller ships could provide a viable alternative in at least some situations. A number of proposals already exist, including a conversion or purpose-built medical derivative of the San Antonio-class amphibious ship, a similar variant of Spearhead-class Expeditionary Fast Transport, and a modular hospital package for the service’s new giant Expeditionary Sea Bases. http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/20156/the-navy-eyes-replacing-its-hospital-ships-with-a-fleet-of-smaller-medical-vessels
