The first purposely built hospital ship (AH) in the US Navy was the USS Relief was commissioned in 1921. [Most hospital ships in the US Navy during World War II were converted passenger liners. Hospital ships primary function is as a floating medical treatment facility or hospital. Attacking a hospital ship is a war crime. However, belligerent navies are entitled the right to board such ships for inspections. The U.S. Navy's two current hospital ships, the USNS Mercy (T-AH-19) and USNS Comfort (T-AH-20), are operated by Military Sealift Command. Each ship contains 12 fully equipped operating rooms, a 1,000-bed hospital facility, digital radiological services, a medical laboratory, a pharmacy, an optometry lab, an intensive care ward, dental services, a CT scanner, a morgue, and two oxygen-producing plants. Each ship is equipped with a helicopter deck capable of landing large military helicopters. The ships also have side ports to take on patients at sea.
