The populations of Guam and the Western Pacific are changing and with it the need for health services.  Health care on Guam is provided by the local government via the Department of Public Health and Social Services, the Guam Memorial Hospital, the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse and to some extent the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation; through the growing number of private providers; and through the Naval Hospital and other military connected clinics.
