The Shortest Distance to Far Away, Check out Oak Harbor!

The Community Oak Harbor, Washington

Oak Harbor is a city located on Whidbey Island in Island County, Washington, a large island just north of Seattle. Situated between the mainland and the Olympic Peninsula, it is Washington's largest island. With the surplus of state parks, charming storefronts, and stunning sunset views, it's also a top-weekend destination for the Seattle metro. Explore Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve, or check out Deception Pass State Park, one of Washington's best state parks which occupies Whidbey Island's northern tip and the southern tip of Fidalgo Island. Or, if you're looking more for the city experience, Seattle is just 35 miles away via WA-525 and I-5 South where you can dive right into the unrivaled natural beauty and world-class attractions to major sports teams, a thriving arts and culture scene, and beyond, where there's always something to do in Seattle.

About the Facility Naval Branch Health Clinic Oak Harbor

The provision of healthcare was established at the time Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island (NASWI) was commissioned in 1942. Originally a department under the Naval Air Station and funded by the Bureau of Weapons and Docks, the hospital was located in the building that now houses Skagit Valley College, just outside the main gate to the Seaplane Base. The Family Practice Clinic, consisting of Pediatrics, Medical Clinic, Aviation Medicine, and Dental, was located on Ault Field across from where the base gas station is now. The hospital at the Seaplane Base had Surgical and Outpatient Clinics, OB/GYN, Operating and Delivery Rooms, Pharmacy, Laboratory, Supply, and administrative offices. Today, Naval Health Clinic Oak Harbor continues to push forward with hard work and dedication as we transition under the new leadership of Defense Health Agency and into a new decade of success focused on Readiness, Quality and Health.
