Guam - Free 4-D Ultrasounds that were initially going to be performed by Dr. Tom Shieh at Vice Speaker BJ Cruz's office today has been moved to Majority Leader Senator Rory Respicio's office instead.

Doctor Shieh is offering the free service as an effort to raise awareness for the need for renovations at the Guam Memorial Hospital's Labor and Delivery Ward. According to a press release, he will visit all the Senators offices to include the Governor's office and then rotate until lawmakers and the Calvo administration make the renovations a priority.

"I want to thank Dr. Shieh for offering these free 4-D ultrasounds in order to bring attention to the need to renovate the Labor and Delivery Ward at the Guam Memorial Hospital," Senator Respicio said. "GMH is our island's public hospital and over 200 babies are born at GMH on a monthly basis.  These babies and especially our pregnant women deserve a renovated first-class facility."

All women who are past 12 weeks of pregnancy are invited to take part in the free high-tech ultrasound procedure beginning today at 1:30pm at Respicio's Senatorial Office located inside the Guam Legislature in Hagatna on an first come basis.
