Governor searches for financial balance

Posted: Updated:

Guam - While the Calvo Administration reviews the various transition reports that were compiled and made public this week, Governor Eddie Calvo says he wants to ensure there's a balance between implementing some of the recommendations proposed in the reports with doing what's in the best interest of the agencies. The subcommittee reviewing the Guam Memorial Hospital recommended the governor invoke his Organic Act authority and remove all of the management at GMH and replace it with an interim management team.

The governor isn't so sure though about making major changes in the leadership at the hospital just yet. He told KUAM News, "I think it's important that we look at these transition reports and we take in the information but with that also sit down and talk with the leaders of organizations such as the hospital and then ensure that whatever we do, we do it in such a manner, that when we strive to improve the quality of whether it's healthcare or the financial position of this community, or public safety, that we do it with the least disruption as possible."

Acting GMH board of directors chairperson Lou Leon Guerrero defended the competence of the current management and board, saying they just need time to get the finances back in order at the hospital.
