Navy Hospitalman Recruit Cote A. Casavant, daughter of Heidi Lynn and Robert A. Casavant of Lewiston, recently graduated from the Basic Hospital Corps School at Naval Hospital Corps School, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the 14-week course, Casavant learned medical procedures used to provide first aid and assist Navy doctors and nurses.

She also received instruction for service in a variety of medical environments, from fleet hospitals and shipboard medical departments to fleet Marine forces and medical administration offices.

Casavant’s newly acquired skills and knowledge will enable her to help provide quality health care to Navy and Marine Corps personnel and their families. Her first assignment after school will involve direct patient care, but with her training, Casavant can work in several areas, including first aid and assisting with minor surgery, pharmacy and laboratory analysis, patient transportation and food service inspections.

Casavant is a 2004 graduate of Lewiston High School and joined the Navy in August 2004.
