The local English Language paper, the Aug, 31, 1936 of the "Panama American", two days after his birth, stated that "Lt. and Mrs. John S. McCain of the Submarine base are the parents of a son born Saturday at the Submarine Base Hospital".
That's also what his mother claims. You could ask her, she's still around.
Other research indicates that there was indeed a medical facility of some sort at Coco Solo, before that hospital was built not long after his birth, because records were found showing that there was a medical officer assigned to it in 1936.
However all that is likely irrelevant, since McCain's father was serving the country in the military, and the same document, Vattel's "Law of Nations" which defines the "Natural Born Citizen" to be one born in the country of parents who are citizens, also states that those born "in the armies of the state" "are reputed born in the country; for a citizen who is absent with his family, on the service of the state, but still dependent on it, and subject to its jurisdiction, cannot be considered as having quitted its territory."
