Access To Care

All patients presenting for treatment (age ten and above) are required to show a valid Uniformed Service Identification Card before treatment will be rendered. The only exception is in the case of a serious medical emergency. The health record is required for all visits to the hospital. If the dependent health record has not been transferred from your previous military medical facility, you may arrange to have this done in the Medical Records Department. A temporary record will be prepared for use in the interim. The legal age of adulthood in Guam is eighteen (18) years. All dependent children under the age of eighteen (18) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian when presenting for health care. There are exceptions to this rule which can be explained to you by the patient Admin Department. Parents who are planning a vacation or other absences (where dependent children might potentially require medical care when a parent is not available) are advised to obtain a Medical Power of Attorney, through the Legal Officer located in Patient Administration to give to the person that will be caring for the children.
