Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune would be expanding services to become a regional trauma center.

According to officials, the reason for the change is to accomplish medical readiness. It will be only the third trauma center in all of eastern North Carolina.

The facility will change names to become the Naval Medical Center of Camp Lejeune.

I know nothing about Naval Hospitals, but does that mean civilians will be treated there?

I thought only military personnel could use that hospital. Or would they be stabilized there, then sent to Greenville?

It is my assumption Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, as Naval Medical Center of Camp Lejeune, will remain limited to military members. There would be many hurdles to jump to open for civilians.

Naval Hospital at Camp Lejeune transitioning*into trauma center

WNCT says it's for civilians too. Otherwise the article is exactly the same.

My concern would be security with non-military personnel coming on base.

Maybe its trauma vs non-trauma patients. And/or Ambulance vs self-driving patients.

Like I could see an ambulance going there with a MVA patient. But if someone broke their bone, they would have to go to Onslow Hospital. But I am purely speculating.

I assume there's a helipad too and some patients could be flown there instead of Wilmington or Greenville. It's probably closer to the crystal coast beaches, not to mention incidents in Onelow County itself.
