USACE continues site assessments of Guam sites for potential future use as Alternate Care Facilities
Representatives from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Honolulu District, the government of Guam, FEMA, NAVFAC Marianas, U.S. Department Health and Human Services, 18th MEDCOM, Dept. of Homeland Security, Guam Air National Guard, and Guam Fire Dept. conducted a site assessment of the Lotte Hotel Guam in Barrigada April 30 for potential use as an Alternate Care Facility. An alternate care facility is a facility that’s temporarily converted for healthcare use during a public health emergency to reduce the burden on hospitals and established medical facilities. USACE is prepared to assist the nation in times of crisis and is working with the White House, Department of Defense, FEMA, and other federal, state and local partners in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The FEMA mission assignments provide support nationwide to address possible medical facility shortages. Photo by Lt. Col. Woodrow Pengelly, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu District
