The Guam Memorial Hospital Authority is taking its plans to modernize and expand facilities and health programs to the people of Guam in a series of village meetings.
Tonight, GMHA Administrator PeterJohn Camacho and his team will meet with the people of Agana Heights at 7 p.m. at the Senior Center.
“We want to share the plans we have for the hospital and the service provided to the people of Guam,” Administrator PeterJohn Camacho stated. “This is the first time we’ve considered a project as large as this and we want to make sure our people – the people we serve – understand how Bills 141 and 142 will help us upgrade and modernize our hospital. These plans will allow us to expand and improve our services to those who walk in through our doors.”
The plans include expanding existing services for health conditions effecting many on Guam: diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
In order to expand those services, the long-dilapidated Z-Wing will have to be torn down and that space used to build more labs and rooms. Additionally, equipment will be needed and the hospital’s existing 40-year plus electrical system upgraded (the first time ever) so it can support the new machines and facility.
Camacho thanks Mayor McDonald for his help in reaching out to the Agana Heights community. Residents from throughout the island are welcome to attend tonight’s meeting or any of the upcoming meetings.
Two other meetings have already been scheduled and confirmed:
- Dededo Senior Citizens Center,7 p.m.Sept. 6
- Inarajan Community Center,7 p.m.Sept. 13
