GMH waits on temp waiver request
by Krystal Paco
Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital is still waiting on word from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services on its request for a temporary waiver of their recent survey findings. GMH Spokesperson Ed Crisostomo tells KUAM News that while they wait for a response, the hospital continues to address concerns from re-modifying structures, replacing 200 door latches and adjusting fire penetrating walls.
"So it will take a little more time on that, but everything right now seems to be ongoing and we're on track and we feel that we're confident that we have addressed the deficiencies that they found in the survey recently," he said.
Crisostomo adds that GMH encourages customers to take advantage of the 20% discount on outstanding self-pay accounts that will be in effect until November 7.
