Guam - The project to expand the Guam Memorial Hospital's emergency room and its intensive care unit has run into a minor delay. The request for proposal evidently was extended from February 3 until this Thursday.
GMH spokesperson Connor Murphy told KUAM News, "It's such a complex project. A lot of vendors had questions and we just want to get those questions answered and make sure we get the best possible proposal to ensure we invest our money as wisely as we could. So we had notified all the vendors who picked up packets of the amendment and the deadline for that is February 17."
The expansion project calls for adding up to 4,000 square feet to the emergency room as well as four to six beds in the intensive care unit. Once awarded it should take about two years to complete construction.
