NS Mayport Community
The Naval Branch Health Clinic is one of Naval Hospital Jacksonville’s five branch health clinics. Our priority is to heal our nation’s heroes — Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, Guardsmen (active and retired) — and their families. Our clinic is at Building 2104 (on Massey Avenue) and includes a state-of-the-art pharmacy outfitted with the latest automated systems, a laboratory with increased in-house testing capabilities and an expanded medical records area. Branch medical, dental, community counseling, the Substance Abuse and Rehabilitation Program (SARP), physical therapy and occupational health services have been brought under one roof for added convenience of one-stop services.
If you have a primary care manager (PCM) at our branch health clinic, you’re part of our Medical Home Port (Gray, Orange or Pink) team of caregivers. Led by the PCM, the team focuses on meeting your preventive, routine and urgent needs.
Convenience options include the 24/7 Nurse Advice Line, TRICARE Online Patient Portal, secure email messaging, pharmacy home delivery, and a website and app with a doctor directory.
Naval Branch Health Clinic Mayport consistently earns the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval, and its Medical Home Port (Gray, Orange and Pink) teams have earned highest-level recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

TO OUR PATIENTS
We are strictly an outpatient clinic and not an emergency room. For treatment requiring more urgent care, please seek your closest treatment facility with the appropriate TRICARE authorization. All emergency ambulance services, on or off base, can be reached by calling 911. Secondly, your care is important to us, so it is essential that you show up for scheduled appointments so that we may follow your care. This past year we experienced more than 11,000 no-shows, which reflects an average loss of $60,000 per month. Thirdly, we ask that our patients adhere to the SOPAMYPTINST 5440.3F instruction for civilian attire when visiting the clinic. The information desk has a complete listing of clothing not permitted in the clinic. Lastly, the uniformed services ID card is required to establish eligibility for medical care. Please be sure to always bring your ID card or you may be refused nonemergency treatment.
