YOKOSUKA, Japan (NNS) -- U.S. Naval Hospital Yokosuka and its Branch Health Clinics in Atsugi, Sasebo, Iwakuni, Yokohama, and Camp Fuji have resumed normal operations. Hospital services will be available during their normal hours of operations.

Out of an abundance of caution, routine outpatient services were temporarily suspended at the core hospital facility in Yokosuka following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami warnings.

Emergency Services have remained operational without interruption. Inpatient wards including the maternal infant and newborn unit, multi-service ward unit and intensive care unit have remained operational without interruption.

Additional safety precautions have been implemented in the event of aftershocks or additional tsunami warnings.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our close friends in Japan during this difficult time and we are standing by to assist if needed.
