As a pre-game to the official Army-Navy football game held Dec. 14, Naval Hospital Beaufort has challenged Army Winn Hospital (Ga.) to a friendly game of football. The Army has accepted the Navy’s challenge.
As a result, on Saturday, Dec. 7, Naval Hospital Beaufort will host the first Lowcountry Army-Navy Flag Football Game at Naval Support Facility Beaufort. Opening ceremonies start at 11:30 a.m., and kickoff at is a noon.
As of October 1, 2019, Naval Hospital Beaufort and it’s outlying clinics transitioned from under the Military Health System (MHS) to the Defense Health Agency (DHA). This transition created an opportunity for Navy Medicine to increase focus on operational support and keeping our Service members healthy and on the job.
This transition has also created a “Lowcountry Market” and a partnership between Naval Hospital Beaufort and the Army Winn Hospital, where resources will be shared throughout the region.
