Military field hospitals provide medical care and emergency support to soldiers injured on the battlefield.
The hospitals can be either temporary structures or mobile medical units. One of the main requirements of a field hospital is to provide immediate medical attention to the injured personnel to save lives.

Military mobile hospital design and features
Mobile hospitals can be designed in the form of tents and containers. The field hospitals can be deployed on trucks and aircraft, or in containers and tents.
The field-deployable hospitals have a modular and flexible design, with relevant equipment integrated to meet the specific requirements of the customer.
Different configurations can be set up to cater to the different levels of treatment required in military conflict zones and during humanitarian and natural crises.
Primary level hospitals can be used to provide preliminary care for injured persons to stabilise them before being transferred to a larger medical facility.
Level two hospitals provide triage, resuscitation and stabilisation, and advanced care, including life-saving surgical interventions, and intensive care. Level three hospitals provide a greater capacity when compared to level two. They are designed to provide full-scale, multi-speciality surgical facilities, with extended capabilities.
