Guam - Within the next 45 days, the developers of a new private hospital intend to close on the purchase of a lot they've identified for the new facility.  The Guam Healthcare and Hospital Development Foundation has identified ten acres of land that was deemed to be the best location after land use consultants did a survey of the island. 

Foundation president Peter Sgro told KUAM News, "They looked at a number of different sites. There's a lot of consideration that goes into building a hospital.  Not just with respect to infrastructure and power but also with respect to financing."  He added, "Out of almost 20 different sites, the land use consultant chose the corner of Route 3 and Marine Corps Drive for a number of different reasons. You can't just build a hospital anywhere."

Sgro says Phases 1 and 2 will have up to 300 beds, but the location is big enough to accommodate up to 700.
