One of Mexico’s Coronado Islands is in the backround. The ship’s medical personnel treated more than 100,000 patients following the devastating tsumani on Dec. 26, 2004. (AP Photo/Denis Poroy)
The US Navy’s floating medgadget–the biggest of them all–that we covered earlier, is one of two General Dynamics supertankers converted into a hospital for the US military. For more information on the facilities provided on the ship and many additional photos, take a look at the ship’s own homepage.
