Qualifying certificate for new hospital almost finalized

Guam - It was last month when the Attorney General's Office returned the contract for the qualifying certificate for the new Guam Regional Medical City.

Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas had completed the review but did not sign off as it was missing a signature from GRMC representatives. GEDA business development manager Christina Garcia tells KUAM she's pushing for the proper signatures today from GRMC on the slightly revised contract. As for why its taking so long to finalize, she says the parties are going back and forth on the type of activities and health services the new hospital will provide. GEDA had previously noted the AG, which is the second to last signature needed before the governor's, did not appear to have any problem with the content of the contract. The governor has also indicated he was in favor of the QC for the new hospital. It was late last year when the GEDA board initially approved the QC request.
