GRMC announces major leadership change

Posted: Updated:

There's been a major leadership change at the Guam Regional Medical City. President and COO Dr. Michael Cruz has been promoted to CEO effective immediately. In a news release, GRMC thanked ousted CEO Margaret Bengzon for playing a "huge role in the design and development of Guam's only private hospital which opened three years ago. 

The move comes amid reports from Manila news media that GRMC's Philippine parent company, The Medical City, is embroiled in an ownership battle between founder, Alfredo Bengzon, Margaret Bengson's father in law, and his nephew Jose Gonzalez.

GRMC also announced that Gonzalez is the new Board Chairman.

In a statement Cruz says that the leadership by local health care professionals has been the plan from the beginning.
