Guam – GPA AND GWA are now threatening the Guam Memorial Hospital with letters of final demand to pay their utility bills or face disconnection.
Earlier this morning, on the K57 breakfast show with Ray Gibson, GPA PIO Art Perez said that GPA has served GMH with a demand letter to pay their power bill, which, according to Pérez, is about a half a million dollars. Similarly the Guam waterworks authority has also served GMH with a demand letter due to a delinquent bill. Governor Eddie Calvo’s spokesperson Oyaol Ngirairikl tells PNC that GovGuam has already paid $50,000 towards GMH’s hospital bill and plans to pay another $50,000 by the end of the month. Ngirairikl says that Governor Eddie Calvo has told GMH administration to work with both GPA and GWA to figure out a solution. However, in a letter of final demand obtained by PNC, GWA has told GMH that the planned $100,000 payment on an account that’s built 10 months in arrears is not good enough and their service will be disconnected by Thursday, January 21. The letter also states that GMH’s last payment to the utility was September 21. GMH spokesperson June Perez wants to reassure the public that GMH is working with GPA and GWA to ensure hospital operations continue without utility interruption. Perez tells PNC that they have until the end of the month to become current on their bills.
