The current medical facility was opened at Naval Submarine Base New London on April 1, 1974, when it was a naval submarine medical center. The facility became Naval Hospital Groton in 1983. In 1998, it joined with Naval Hospital Newport and Naval Medical Clinic Portsmouth to be called “Naval Health Care New England.” In 1998, inpatient care was discontinued and the clinic became the Navy’s first free-standing ambulatory surgical center. On Oct. 1, 2006, under guidance from the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, the clinic name officially changed to Naval Branch Health Clinic Groton.
