PEARL HARBOR (HawaiiNewsNow) - A floating hospital pulled into Pearl Harbor Saturday.

The USNS Mercy is here as part of a Navy humanitarian effort called "Pacific Partnership 2010."

The massive ship has operation rooms, x-rays, and a staff of more than 500.

It will deploy to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Indonesia to provide medical services, and to improve the Navy's relationship with those countries.
