Hospital Point

The US Navy Hospital was at Hospital Point on the eastern side of the entrance to Pearl Harbor facing the Waipio Peninsula, with the Navy Yard to its east and north east and Hickam Field Army Air Force base to the south east. The battleship Nevada was beached nearby on 7 December to prevent her sinking and blocking the harbor entrance.
