Military hospital

A military hospital is a hospital that is reserved for the use of military personnel, their dependents and other authorized users. They may or may not be located on a military base; many are not.


In the United Kingdom and Germany, British military hospitals have been closed; military personnel are usually treated in a special wing of a designated civilian hospital, in UK referred to as a Ministry of Defence Hospital Unit. Service personnel injured in combat operations are normally treated at the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine.
