The Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center is a registered PMSR / RRA with a large diversity of patients. The site is merged with Naval Station Great Lakes which provides 40,000+ potential new patients per year. It is the only facility of its kind in the country, where both VA as well as active duty patients are being treated. There is a high clinic volume and high variety of surgical cases with a higher emphasis on reconstructive surgery, trauma surgery and sports medicine. Residents are able to follow patients pre-operatively and post-operatively for a complete surgical training regimen with good continuity of care. All core rotations are completed at the main hospital except vascular which is done at Vista Health Center. Multiple surgery centers in the greater Chicagoland area are affiliated with the Residency Program.
