U.S. Naval Hospital (USNH) Sigonella is a 22-bed community hospital located in the heart of the Mediterranean in Sicily, Italy. We are comprised of our main facility in Sigonella and have satellite clinic and branch clinics located in Souda Bay, Greece and the Kingdom of Bahrain. Our staff of almost 500 military, civilian and contract staff provide high quality, patient-centered care and operational support to approximately 7,492 active duty, family members, NATO forces, retirees, and other eligible patients through international collaboration and status of force agreements.
We take great pride in keeping our patients in the Sigonella area healthy, ready and on-the-job -- the Navy Medicine mission. We are fully accredited by The Joint Commission-our nation's premiere accrediting body for hospitals across the U.S. Our Medical Home Port teams have earned the highest level of recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). NCQA's recognition programs are built on evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical standards of care.
USNH Sigonella provides a continuum of care: primary care for the whole family, specialty services, surgery, maternity care, pharmacy, laboratory and radiology. Preventive services include wellness and nutrition.
When care is something outside of the scope of our services, we partner closely with our Host Nation health care facilities to ensure the best experience possible for you and your family members by providing patient liaisons, case managers, translation services and more to support continuity of care and the best patient outcomes. This guide is designed to help you navigate care in the Host Nation network.

When you move, TRICARE moves with you. No matter where you go in the world, TRICARE is there before, during and when you get to your next duty station.
There are steps you need to take to make sure changes to your TRICARE coverage go smoothly. Understand that when you move, you may have to use a different TRICARE option. Visit TRICARE Moving to learn more.
Before you move, you should take care of any routine medical needs, including immunizations, and fill your prescriptions so you have enough while traveling. If you need care during your move, visit TRICARE Getting Care When Traveling to learn what to do.
Filling prescriptions while traveling
You should refill prescriptions before traveling. But if you run out of a prescription drug while traveling, visit TRICARE Filling Prescriptions When Traveling.
Getting dental care while traveling
Getting dental care while traveling depends on your location and whether you are a service member or family member.
With permanent change of station orders, ask for a copy of your medical and dental records from your military treatment facility and the dental treatment facility. Do this at least one month before your PCS date. The MTF should also transfer a copy of your record and any family records to your new duty station or you may be able to hand carry them to your new duty station.
If you want someone else to be able to get medical or dental information on you or your family while you are moving, you need to complete a DD Form 2870, "Authorization for Disclosure of Medical or Dental Information."
For more information on getting copies of medical records, visit TRICARE Request Copies of Medical Records.
