GRMC will not be sold

Republican Gubernatorial candidate Felix Camacho’s proposal to fix Guam’s Healthcare infrastructure might not happen.

GRMC Vice President, Eric Plinske, in a statement to PNC says that GRMC will not sell the hospital.

The question on whether or not the GRMC is up for sale, stems from recent comments made by former Governor, now Gubernatorial candidate, Felix Camacho.

Camacho recently went on record proposing that Guam Memorial Hospital should “buy out” Guam Regional Medical City to expand the island’s bed capacity. Rather than Governor Lou Leon Guerrero’s one stop medical center at Eagles Field.

GMH administrator Lilian Posadas, in an interview with NewsTalk K57’s Patti Arroyo – says that Camacho’s plan will make little change.

Saying that GRMC also struggles to get patients a bed.

Adding, that Guam needs a new hospital.

PNC reached out to the Camacho-Ada Campaign for a comment but none was given as of this time.
