Posted: Updated:

Guam - While the request for proposal for the expansion of the Guam Memorial Hospital's emergency and Intensive Care Unit remains tied-up at the Attorney General's Office, the island's only public hospital is looking at other ways expand its capacity down the road.  GMH spokesman Connor Murphy says the hospital has issued an RFP to find consultants to help evaluate their options.

He described the priorities of the projects by saying, "A- to continue to build on the existing site at GMH in Tamuning; B - to build a whole brand new hospital at another site; C - to build a satellite hospital at another site to complement the facilities we have here at GMH."

GMH has already identified funding for the research from the U.S. Department of the Interior. The deadline for proposals to be submitted is September 10.
