The U.S. Navy is using Chicago's Stoger Hospital to train and prepare doctors, medics, and nurses for battlefield conditions.

As with so many of the experiences awaiting military medical personnel once overseas, "Stoger Hospital... stands in the middle of a war zone... in its own way."

According to the AP, "the Navy doesn't have any trauma training facilities in the U.S., [so] military medical teams" have to be sent elsewhere for "experience dealing with penetrating wounds." And these teams have found that bullet wounds--"even a single bullet wound"--"[unleash] the same kind of massive infection inflicted by roadside bombs in Afghanistan."

There are plenty of bullet wounds to learn from in Chicago, where Stoger Hospital has "one of the busiest... trauma units" in the country. In 2013 alone, Stoger Hospital "treated nearly 600 gunshot victims," over 260 stab victims, "and almost 900 people injured in traffic [accidents]."Scissors-32x32.png
