Guam – More good news from the Guam Memorial Hospital–over $80,000 in much-needed upgrades have been made to their med-tele ward that help to create a more conducive environment for patient healing and caring.

Thanks to the generous donations from the Filipino Community of Guam and GTA TeleGuam, the Med-Tele unit got a face lift with $50,000 from the FCG for window treatments, padded benches in patient rooms, 32-in TVs for all 33 patient rooms, wall clocks and shower curtains. With those upgrades includes $31,500 in cable TV service and connection courtesy of GTA.

“I’d like to express an un dangkulu n si yu’us ma’ase para GTA, para i Filipino Community of Guam, from the bottom of our hearts. We truly appreciate all this. We’d like to let our community know that this is important for our hospital. It is hard time that we have to come together and make the donation and help our hospital,” said GMHVA President Joyce Crisostomo .

Through lobbying and fundraising efforts, the GMH Volunteers Association has provided millions of dollars in medical equipment and support to the Guam Memorial Hospital over the last 50 years.
