Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital's Board of Trustees met last night and approved plans to expand the facility's intensive care unit and emergency room.  The $7 million expansion will add up to 6 beds to the ICU and additional trauma rooms, exam rooms, and isolation rooms to the ER.

Spokesman Connor Murphy told KUAM News, "What we're looking at is issuing the RFP next month. We're working on finalizing it right now and then we're going to be awarding the contract sometime around summertime, July. And the project will be finalized by late 2011."

The ER sees more than 28,000 patients a year, but that number is expected to increase with the military buildup.
