Guam - Lawmakers were supposed to hear public testimony on Bill 158 today that seeks to create an urgent care outpatient medical center at the Guam Memorial Hospital, but the Healthcare Committee will wait for the new board of trustees to meet first.  The recently confirmed hospital board is scheduled to meet tomorrow evening to discuss a variety of issues and lawmakers are hoping to get their position on the legislation. 

The bill would help provide revenue for the hospital by obtaining proposals from interested companies, private medical centers or groups of physicians who would like to operate an urgent care outpatient medical center at GMH.  The board is scheduled to meet at six o'clock Thursday evening.
