As an active duty Sailor, I spent almost 6 months there in 1958-1959 with a broken back. Had good treatment but it was a long recovery. I remember visiting with lots of WWII Vets.

I was stationed at st albans (1966)....after hospital corps school, there was a great
bar outside the main gate called sig & eddies. Great nurses, doctor's and staff, along
with many wounded marines. Remembered a young nurse by the name of jill jarrett.
Great memories before shipping out to field med school, then onto west-pac.

Does anyone remember that place in the 50s, 60s and 70s.
I remember it! I was born there in 1950 and my brother was born there
in 1952. Our Dad was a Naval Recruiter in Freeport, Long Island during
the 1950's and we lived in Massapequa. Great memories of there and
Jones Beach State Park, riding the Long Island Railroad into the city,
and trips to Coney Island and Freedomland amusement parks!

As well, my father recovered there after being wounded in RVN in 1968.

The doctors, nurses and staff was the best. The "Godfather of Soul" James Brown lived across the street. The statue representing the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima used to stand at the front entrance. My brother climbed it every chance he got. Drove the sentry crazy. Fun talking to the vets. One of the best memories of growing up in Queens.

There are a few here:
St. Albans Naval Stock Images – Corbis (http://www.corbisimages.com/Search/SearchResults.aspx?q=St.+Albans+Naval - broken link)

I found the above by looking through Google images, but there are a lot not related, take a look here:
