About Us


What is an Ombudsman?
Ombudsmen are dedicated volunteer who is trained to assist Navy families to successfully navigate the challenges of a Navy lifestyle.  (The Commanding Officer appoints ombudsmen to be the official liaison between the Command and its families.)  As the information link between the command leadership and the command families, Ombudsmen are trained to disseminate information about the command, its activities, local quality of life improvement opportunities, and "good deals" around the community.  Ombudsmen are here to provide you communication, outreach, resource & referral, and advocacy.

Should anyone have concerns, comments or any questions, your hospital ombudsman is here to help and connect you to the resources you need.

What an Ombudsman is not?

But I am a great listener
I am not an enabler
But I can provide tools to empower you
I am not a master of anything
But I know many experts who understand your needs
I am not a Recreation or Health Specialist
But I am concerned about your Morale, Welfare, and Health
