Combat Support Hospital

A Combat Support Hospital (CSH, pronounced "cash") is a type of modern United States military field hospital. The CSH is transportable by aircraft and trucks and is normally delivered to the Corps Support Area in standard military-owned Demountable Containers (MILVAN) cargo containers. Once transported, it is assembled by the staff into a tent hospital to treat patients. Depending upon the operational environment (e.g., battlefield), a CSH might also treat civilians and wounded enemy soldiers. The CSH is the successor to the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital.

Famous quotes containing the words hospital, combat and/or support:

    Time rushes toward us with its hospital tray of infinitely varied narcotics, even while it is preparing us for its inevitably fatal operation.
    Tennessee Williams (1914–1983)

    In any combat between a rogue and a fool the sympathy of mankind is always with the rogue.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    I support all people on earth
    who have bodies like and unlike my body,
    skins and moles and old scars,
    secret and public hair,
    crooked toes. I support
    those who have done nothing large.
    Naomi Shihab Nye (b. 1952)
