GEDA reviewing all comments for GRMC's QC application

Posted: Updated:


GUAM - The comment period for the Guam Regional Medical City's qualifying certificate application ended earlier this week and according to the Guam Economic Development Authority, a total of 65 comments were submitted - the most ever for a qualifying certificate request.

GEDA's business development manager Tina Garcia says overall a majority of the testimony submitted both during and after the public hearing were in favor of the new hospital's QC application. She says those in opposition mostly represented private doctors and clinics. She adds because QC abatements and rebates are important, GEDA appreciates the public's participation. GEDA will now prepare a case analysis that will then be forwarded to its credit review committee who will provide a recommendation to the GEDA board. The matter will be addressed during the board's July meeting.
