Sponsoring Organization History
The Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center (FHCC) is a first-of-its-kind partnership between the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense (DoD), integrating all medical care into a fully-integrated federal health care facility with a single combined VA and Navy mission.
Located in North Chicago, Illinois, the Lovell FHCC was established on Oct. 1, 2010. The arrangement incorporates facilities, services and resources from the North Chicago VA Medical Center (VAMC) and the Naval Health Clinic Great Lakes (NHCGL). A combined mission of the health care center means active duty military, their family members, military retirees and veterans are all cared for at the facility. The health care center ensures that nearly 40,000 Navy recruits who transition through Naval Station Great Lakes each year are medically ready. We care for nearly 67,000 eligible military and retiree beneficiaries each year, and bring Veterans throughout Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin first-rate care.

As the first integrated health-care federal facility, we are proud to provide comprehensive, compassionate, patient centered care to our veterans and DoD beneficiaries while maintaining the highest level of operational readiness.
