Routine prenatal care can be done at BHC Chinhae, but patients will need to deliver at a local Korean Hospital or larger Military Treatment Facility.
Many patients will establish care with a local obstetrician, but will also be seen at the BHC Chinhae to ensure pregnancy-related counseling and testing meets American standards of care. Routine pregnancies may be able to transfer and deliver on a case-by-case basis to Naval Hospital Yokosuka, Naval Hospital Okinawa, the Brian All good Army Community Hospital on USAG Yongsan in Seoul, or most local Korean hospitals. Please contact BHC Chinhae for more information about this program.
Per USFK policy, single members who become pregnant will generally be transferred from Korea before 20 weeks gestation.
Obstetric emergencies are seen by a local Korean obstetrician at St Mary’s Hospital or Pusan National University Hospital in Busan.
