Guam - It looks like the Guam Memorial Hospital isn't the only medical facility in the territory clouded with a bit of controversy, the Government Accountability Office released a report on the military's proposed improvements to their medical capabilities in Guam. The title of the GAO report gives it away: "Defense Infrastructure: The Navy Needs Better Documentation to Support its Proposed Military Treatment Facilities on Guam".  

The report details the Navy's plans to build a new replacement hospital in Agana Heights and to construct two new health clinics: one at the proposed new Marine Corps base in North Finegayan and the other at Big Navy. In a nutshell the GAP found the Navy didn't provide adequate analysis or documents to support the staff, size, cost or configuration of their plans for their new medical facilities in the territory.
