Guam - A hearing was held on a bill that would allow the hospital to utilize recruiting agencies to help them hire certified registered or licensed health care professionals and pharmacists.
Bill 45 would exempt the Guam Memorial Hospital from the procurement laws that prevent GMH from procuring professional medical services.
The bill would allow the hospital to contract with an outside person or agency to help them recruit certified registered or licensed health care professionals.

Hospital food services administrator Catherine San Nicolas says that the measure would only produce favorable results after years of unfavorable experiences with recruiting registered dieticians. She says that over a span of ten years from 1995 to 2005 GMH was only able to recruit and employ a total of six registered dieticians.
"The bill seeks the necessary legislative action to support the hospital out of it's recruitment nightmare with the direct assistance of recruiting agencies or outside persons it's a vital move and the right move for the Guam Memorial Hospital Authority to be given exemption to engage with a recruiting agency or an outside person in the procurement of medical and healthcare professional services at the hospital that would not be in violation of any procurement law,” testified San Nicolas during the public hearing.
