Navy Takes Another Look at Bremerton Hospital Cuts After Lawmaker Cites Miscarriage, Readiness Issues

Recommended Posts

Wow! 😮

The lawmaker whose district includes Naval Hospital Bremerton has challenged the Navy over years of downsizing and staffing cuts at the facility, saying it has not only hurt readiness but also endangered patients.

"I had a service member who said that she was pregnant. ... With the closure of labor and delivery, she ended up seeking care from a local provider where she sat for eight hours in a waiting room and miscarried," Rep. Derek Kilmer, D-Wash., told Military.com in an interview Thursday.
