A settlement to give a family of a 5-year-old boy $300,000 because his leg had to be amputated due to negligence at the hospital evidently was the trigger that led to the governor's decision to remove the agency's entire leadership.

AGANA HEIGHTS, GUAM (June 27, 2014)-- Just two short months after the ribbon cutting, the staff of the U.S. Naval Hospital Guam held a change of command ceremony in the hospital's atrium, June 27. During the ceremony Capt. Jeannie B. Comlish assumed command of the hospital from Capt. Jeffrey M. Plummer, marking the end of two years of command for Plummer. During his command Plummer oversaw the construction and historic transition of hospital staff to a new facility. The hospital became operational in the spring of 2014, with the first patient seen April 21. In his final speech to the staff Plummer said, "A young Corpsman once asked me what made me stay in the Navy past 20 years. At the time I gave him some kind of answer like, 'I'm still having fun' and I am, but thinking over it a lit...
Anjelica gave birth to her first daughter while living abroad on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Though she originally wanted to deliver with a midwife, she had to make adjustments based on her location’s cultural norms and her Spanish language barrier. Anjelica’s story takes some crazy turns that involve driving two-hours to the hospital, her husband paying for a private labor room while she was in labor, and her doula almost delivering their baby. As she shares what birth is like for many women on the island we get an idea of what it takes for some women outside the continental U.S. to achieve a low-intervention vaginal birth. Anjelica gave birth to her second daughter on another lush island, Guam. This time around she was able to have a midwife provider like she’...
Doctors Vanessa Concina and Katrina Ibonia, Neonatologists at GRMC, were guests this week on Your Healthcare Partners, the weekly radio program sponsored by the hospital. The neonatologists spoke with host Patti Arroyo about the most common causes for expectant mothers to go in to premature labor, which include high blood pressure, stress, and illnesses or infections, but noted it is usually nothing specific. The doctors, who were friends before moving to Guam from Kentucky to work for GRMC, also shared how important the last three weeks of pregnancy are and why preterm babies often face such critical issues like respiratory distress, sepsis, and temperature changes. GRMC’s NICU has specialized equipment to care for sick and critical neonates and premature infants.
The tragic story of Ricky Naputi, one of the worlds fattest men. At nearly 65 stone, bedridden and confined to his home on the Pacific island of Guam, Ricky had limited access to obesity medical care. Even finding a doctor to give him the weight-loss surgery he so desperately needed would prove to be a massive challenge. Ricky lived with Cheryl, his wife of ten years, on a beautiful tropical island, but for the last five years of his life he never would never be able to appreciate it. He had become a prisoner in his own home, trapped in his bed, morbidly obese and unable to walk. In a desperate effort to get help, Ricky and Cheryl tracked down campaigner Angie Flores, herself a former weight-loss surgery patient. However, she lived 10,000 miles away in Houston, Texas. Angie promised Ricky ...
