Governor Lou Leon Guerrero met this afternoon with the 13-member team from the Army Corps of Engineers who began their assessment of the structural integrity of Guam Memorial Hospital on Monday.
GMH administrator Lillian Perez Posadas told the Pacific News Center that today’s meeting was meant to provide the governor and the board of trustees with a briefing on their initial findings.
“They are taking a look at every corner of the hospital, every wall of the hospital, every column. And just everything that they want us to let them see and then to help us to get them to come to a comprehensive determination of the facility,” Perez-Posadas said.
Gov. Leon Guerrero said: “The goal of this inspection is to give us scientific information, professional information, expert information about the integrity of the structure because then the decision would be either to invest in massive renovation or to just build a new hospital.”
Perez-Posadas told K-57’s Patti Arroyo this morning that a more extensive briefing for hospital staff and physicians will be given on Friday.
