This thesis focuses on the identification of perceived health care needs among military retirees residing on the Monterey Peninsula and within the catchment area of Silas B. Hays Army Community Hospital. Military retirees are expected to be the primary health care users of military health care services in the Monterey Peninsula after Fort Ord closes sometime in 1994. This thesis identifies their perceived health care needs and determines how they vary demographically. By identifying their perceived health care needs, DoD officials can determine what military medical resources may need to remain in the area to meet those needs; if Silas B. Hays Army Community Hospital, also located on Fort Ord, should close.
