The equipment was worth thousands of dollars, according to Senator Dennis Rodriguez’s office.
Guam – Just in time for the reopening of the Northern Community Health Center following a renovation and expansion project, the public health agency received a donation of brand new medical equipment today.
Presented by Senator Dennis Rodriguez Jr. during a board meeting today, Guam Traveler’s Clinic donated two examination tables, an audiometer, a urinalysis machine and a digital scale, among other items.
Dr. Akio Osio, medical director of Guam Traveler’s Clinic explains that when they first opened their Tumon clinic about six years ago, he overestimated their needs for medical equipment.
So he and GTC Managing Partner John Ko decided they would donate the items to the Guam community.
“I ask senator is there any place I can donate two exam tables and a couple of audio machines and urinary system machines and he said he’ll find it and that’s why I’m here,” explains Dr. Osio.
“Every time [we] really makes a profit, I really like to help out the community,” says Ko. “We’re glad we came to give something back to the community. We’ll continue to work with different agencies as well.”
The Guam Community Health Center Board also presented Guam Traveler’s Clinic with a resolution thanking them for their generous donation.
