Medical Care


Civilians are not typically seen at the U.S. Naval Branch Health Clinic Bahrain on-base so you’ll most likely be seeing one of the providers listed in the next, off-base section. The U.S. Naval Branch Health Clinic Bahrain on base is the most forward deployed clinic of U.S. Naval Hospital Sigonella, Italy and responsible for providing care to Naval Support Activity Bahrain, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, Commander Fifth Fleet, and 91 tenant commands, providing medical support to more than 12,000 fleet Sailor, Marines, and other DoD personnel operating in the Central Command theater. All inpatient care is provided by local, host nation facilities and must be coordinated by the TRICARE/ Health Benefits Office. The base clinic does not provide emergency services but does work closely with local hospitals. In case of an emergency, US citizens in Bahrain are directed to find their closest emergency services or dial 999 for an ambulance. On base you can call 439-4911.
