Guam Memorial Hospital signed a memorandum of understanding with Taiwan’s Adventist Hospital this afternoon.
The MOU establishes a collaborative arrangement between GMH and the Taiwanese hospital which is one of the largest medical facilities in that country.
Unlike GMH, Taiwan Adventist Hospital is Joint Commission-accredited. It is located in Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei.
Under the terms of the agreement, Taiwan Adventist Hospital will accept GMH patients and seek payment from the patients directly, or their insurance provider. GMH will not be held liable for the services provided in Taiwan.
GMH and TAH retain full control of their own “assets and affairs of their respective institutions” and neither hospital “assumes any liability for any debts or financial or legal obligations incurred by any other party.”
The term of the agreement is one year from January 1, 2020 and it will “renew for an indefinite number of additional one-year terms” unless one or the other party provides a 30-notice to terminate.
GMH Administrator Lillian Perez-Posadas signed on behalf of GMH. Dr. Hui-Ting Huang M.D. signed on behalf of TAH.
