New U.S. Naval Hospital Agana Heights, Guam

Type: Health Care

Size: 281,153 GSF, Three stories


To better serve the Pacific Rim in meeting the medical needs of the present and projected patient population, this new, modern replacement hospital of 281,153 GSF (Phase 1) replaces a 1950s-era facility.  This three-story replacement hospital consists of inpatient medical facilities, ancillary departments, emergency care, specialty care clinics, support spaces, and facilities to provide a variety of medical services for surgery, patient overnight stays, intensive care, and general medical and emergency care.  It meets current code and criteria requirements to provide a safe and comfortable environment for the delivery of medical services to DoD beneficiaries.


Specific project elements include:

– 42 Inpatient Beds

– 6 Bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

– 4 Modern Operating Rooms, 2 C-section rooms

– Full Diagnostic Imaging with MRI

– 5 Dental treatment rooms

– Efficient patient/staff circulation patterns and departmental layouts

– New Central Utility plant, electrical, and medical infrastructure

– Improved patient drop-off and convenient patient parking access, with 912 parking spaces


The new facility’s compact, efficient and modern arrangement emphasizes on outpatient care.  The new layout features a central waiting area attached to two easily accessible levels.  The first floor houses high-volume clinics and ancillary services, while the second floor houses lower-volume clinics and inpatient services.  MRI services are located on the 1st Floor.  The facility, which was designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver certification, features sustainable elements including rainwater capture system, solar reflective roof materials and native vegetation surrounding the structure. The work also included the expansion of the Central Utility Plant (CUP) building, new boiler (2,330 kh steam/hr – 200hp), three (3) emergency generators (System Capacity 4,500 KW), required ancillary equipment, and utility service lines from the CUP to the new hospital building.
