The Naval Hospital Guam is reviewing its operations in light of the COVID-19 situation on Island.
The Hospital says in an effort to decrease the risk of infection and slow the spread of COVID-19, the following appointments are being reviewed and will possibly be rescheduled:
• Routine Medical Appointments
• Routine Dental Appointments
• Elective Surgeries (procedures that postponing for weeks or even months will not directly lead to a worse outcome)
• Military Entrance Processing Appointments
The facility said healthcare staff will be reviewing each case and physicians will determine if appointments could be satisfied via telephone consultation, or if the appointment will need to be rescheduled.
In a statement to PNC News, officials said anyone with questions, should discuss their situation with their physician.
If in doubt, about what “routine” or “elective” means, the Hospital is encouraging you to ask your medical professional.
The Hospital’s Emergency Department remains operable and is available 24 hours a day for those with acute illness.
