Post Naval Hospitals - General
From The Life, Voyages and Travels of Capt. John Myers, who speaks of the naval hospital:

"....if any department of the Navy, or Army of this nation deserves particular praise, every man whose opinion is formed from experience, will without hesitation declare, the the Hospital department has superior claims... whenever any necessity, or situation required medical aid, I always experienced attention; whatever was requisite for comfort, was instantly supplied....."

Incidentally, he does not state which hospital, as far as I can see.

The Times, July 17, 1786:

" ... The building of two naval hospitals for the use of the fleets in time of war, are resolved on: the one is to be at Deal, and the other at Sheerness, at both which places great inconveniences have been complained of for want of such accommodation, particularly during the late war with the Dutch, and especially after the engagement between Admiral Parker's and Zoutman's fleet, off the Dogger-Bank, when the sick and wounded were poured in in such numbers, that private lodgings were obliged to be hired for the men, which were complained of as both incovenient and expensive.. ....."

The Times, November, 1785:

" ...... A new hospital for the reception of sick and hurt seamen and marines, is going to be built the ensuing spring at Deal, in Kent; and there is a proposal for another at Harwich for the same purpose. The reasons assigned are, an expectation of war with the Dutch being much more frequent in future than heretofore, and in that case as engagements with the squadrons of that nation are expected to be near home, those places are looked upon as the most eligible for the men of war landing their wounded after an engagement, ...."
