Health Care Heroes | A salute to Hampton Roads workers and volunteers


“From March 2020 to today, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) staff established a COVID treatment unit for COVID inpatients, a car triage unit that ultimately became our drive through testing center, a call center that has fielded more than 100,000 calls, and we were one of the first military treatment facilities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Today, we are operating multiple vaccination sites. In addition to our main campus, we have three others at the Branch Health Clinics located in Norfolk, Little Creek and Oceana, in order to directly reach the high numbers of fleet assets. Additionally, NMCP staff were deployed to New York, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Wisconsin for Defense Support for Civil Authority (DSCA) missions during the year, and recently deployed staff members in support of FEMA vaccination sites.”
