Guam- Navy Medicine has existed in Guam since August 1899, one year after the United States took possession of Guam when the USS Yosemite arrived with two medical officers. Fast forward to now, the next evolution of Military Medicine has already started as construction begins on the island’s new Naval Hospital.
The project will be done in two phases. The first phase will construct the replacement hospital. The second phase will demolish the old hospital and construct parking. The last phase is expected to be completed by Fall 2014.
