NBG Security adjusts access procedures for Naval Hospital June 25-30, July 5-9 and July 11
SANTA RITA, Guam – U.S. Naval Base Guam (NBG) Security Department is adjusting the U.S. Naval Hospital Guam’s base access procedures from June 25-30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, and again July 5-9 and July 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily in order to accommodate Munitions of Explosive Concern (MEC) operations on and around the Naval Hospital and Guam High School’s complex. These critical MEC operations will allow contractors to install artificial turf to the Guam High School’s baseball/softball field. July 12 is a contingency day in case of delays or weather.
Only during the periods of June 25-28 will access to the hospital main gate and the Veterans Administration Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) be impeded. Traffic to the hospital will use the back gate or Guam High School entrance (see map enclosure), whereas traffic to the CBOC may experience slight delays during this time. Additionally, visitors requiring temporary access June 25-28 will have to get a temporary pass at the main base Visitor Control Center located outside of the NBG Main Gate, opposite the T. Stell “War in the Pacific” Museum along Route 1, Marine Corps Drive. As a reminder, the VCC is only open on weekdays.
Patients are being asked to arrive 30 minutes early for appointments and to expect sometimes lengthy delays on the main road (Farenholt Ave.) to and from the hospital.
