Verga disputes deadline for payment

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Today may have been the deadline for the Guam Memorial Hospital to pay up or lose critical services, but that's not the case thanks to Bill 250, which was signed into law a couple weeks ago.

According to GMH administrator Joseph Verga, with the recently passed legislation that pushes the GMH $25 million loan forward, hospital operations will continue as usual.

Verga says he's been in contact with vendors who understand the pending legislation necessary to pay their bills.

As we've been reporting, some vendors issued GMH an ultimatum to pay their debts by today or lose critical services.

Verga remains confident the paperwork will be completed by the end of the week.
