GRMC Announces New Leadership Positions at GRMC and BCG

(Friday, December 3, 2021; Dededo, Guam) In a follow up to yesterday’s press release announcement that Blue Continent Healthcare Guam Medical City (BCG) has acquired the hospital assets of Guam Healthcare Development, Inc. (GHDI), parent company of Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC), Mr. Jose Xavier B. Gonzales, Chairman of GHDI, and Dr.  Gilbert H. Mudge, Chairman of BCG, are pleased to announce new leadership roles at both BCG and GRMC.

Effective immediately, former GRMC President/CEO Michael Cruz, MD, MBA, will assume a visionary leadership role with BCG as its Executive Director. In this position, Dr. Cruz will support and guide the non-profit organization (NPO) to accomplish its mission to create centers of excellence at GRMC and expand its healthcare footprint within Guam and Micronesia.

“I am excited to take on this new role at BCG which allows me to continue working with GRMC’s executive team to accomplish the hospital’s goals to become a center of excellence for Guam,” said Cruz. “As BCG Executive Director, I will support GRMC’s strategic expansion, including increasing its inpatient bed capacity and expanding its healthcare infrastructure to better serve the key strategic island nations of the Blue Continent.”

GHDI will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of GRMC while BCG will maintain the assets and licenses as owner of the hospital. BCG plans to use its not-for-profit status to expand fundraising opportunities as a US-domiciled foundation to grow GRMC’s patient base and improve the breadth and scope of services throughout the Blue Continent.

GRMC also announces the appointment of Alan V. Funtanilla, MS, RN as its new President and CEO. Funtanilla has been with GRMC since 2014, beginning as its Chief Administrative Services Officer and Chief Patient Services/Nursing Officer. In 2018, Funtanilla was promoted to Executive Vice President and COO.

“I am honored to have been selected to lead GRMC and continue our mission to be the healthcare leader in Guam and Micronesia. In my seven years with GRMC, I have proudly supported our hospital in becoming the island’s first choice for excellent healthcare. I look forward to expanding our mission with the support of our parent NPO, BCG.”
