Guam seeks grant from military to plan new hospital

Guam plans to seek a grant from the military’s Office of Economic Adjustment to start drawing up plans for a new Guam Memorial Hospital, including how large it would be and how much it might cost, according to hospital Administrator Lillian Perez-Posadas.

Perez-Posadas provided an update on the new hospital project during an oversight hearing Thursday with lawmakers.
