NMCP Pediatrics Department Receives Donation

Members of the Joint Base Langley-Eustis Sergeant Audie Murphy Club donated a Nintendo Switch to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth’s (NMCP) Pediatrics Ward.
“The purpose behind the donation is to give the kids that go there for treatment something to do while they are up there receiving their infusions or other procedures,” said Army Staff Sgt. Chris Lynch.
Lynch said the Sergeant Audie Murphy Club is designed to acknowledge non-commissioned officers who have achieved the highest level of leadership.
“The purpose of the club is to be stewards of the Army profession by doing community volunteer events, mentoring younger leaders and giving back to the community, as well as building the non-commissioned officer corps,” Lynch said.
As the U.S. Navy's oldest, continuously-operating military hospital since 1830, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth proudly serves past and present military members and their families. The nationally-acclaimed, state-of-the-art medical center, along with the area's 10 branch health and
TRICARE Prime Clinics, provide care for the Hampton Roads area. The medical center also supports premier research and teaching programs designed to prepare new doctors, nurses and hospital corpsman for future roles in healing and wellness.
