Guam - Freshman senator Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. is asking Governor Eddie Calvo for clarification regarding the takeover at the Guam Memorial Hospital Authority. Rodriguez sent a letter to Calvo, saying the recent takeover has many in the community confused or concerned about such actions.
The senator does not agree that the new board or management will instantly solve the challenges facing the hospital.
While Governor Calvo says the team will create progress, Senator Rodriguez says the financial shortfalls are due to long-outstanding receivables from Government of Guam agencies. He is calling on the governor to engage lawmakers in a joint effort to share his strategy on the 30-to-60 day turnaround solution.
