USACE recommends construction of replacement hospital

It will cost $761 million to renovate the 46-year-old Guam Memorial Hospital. The price tag for a brand-new medical facility is $743 million.

For the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it’s no brainer.

“The optimal solution to enhance health care services on Guam is the construction of a new medical campus on a site to be determined,” USACE states in a draft report presented to GMH officials on Thursday.
