VIDEO: Site Clearing Work Begins for Guam Medical City


Guam – It is not the official ground breaking yet, but dck construction has begun to clear the vegetation and debris from the property where Guam’s new private hospital will soon rise.

The cite preparation work began Monday for the Guam Medical City, which will be Guam’s first private hospital.

dck’s Vice-President for Micronesia, Louis Demaria said the 8-acre property in Dededo at the intersection of Route’s 1 and 3 will soon be teaming with construction workers and equipment as the new hospital begins to take shape in the coming months.

The construction is expected to take 2 years to complete.

But even after construction of the $150-million dollar hospital is finished in 2014, it will take another $40 million or so to furnish and equip it. And then it will have to get inspected and certified, and staff will have to be hired before its doors will be open to patients.
