Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital has four new emergency room physicians, and according to hospital administrator Joseph Verga there's many more doctors to come. "So far we have several new physicians in the pipeline but nothing I can confirm at the moment except for emergency physicians we have recruited several and there are several ne physicians in the emergency room now on staff," he said.

The hires are a result of the increased volume of patients being seen in the ER. Verga says GMH is at 90 percent or more capacity every day and the ER is typically at its highest volume from 4pm to midnight especially on weekends. As far as the urgent care unit it is still in the planning phases, the final plan was recently approved by the hospital's board. He says the plan and services are in place at this time they have received over $300,000 which will be used to hire the staff clinicians and nurses.
