Kitsap County offers excellent access to healthcare services. For example, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) awarded Harrison Medical Center a score of 99 out of 100. Harrison has medical care units in East Bremerton, Silverdale and Port Orchard and serves the counties of Jefferson, Kitsap and North Mason. Services include open heart surgery and two level 3 emergency facilities.
The Bremerton Naval Hospital was recently chosen by a joint services commission as an example of how other DoD treatment facilities should be run.
