GRMC Promotes Lobaton to Vice President

(Friday, February 4, 2022; Dededo, Guam) Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC) is proud to announce the advancement of Bernie D. Lobaton to Vice President of Support Services. Lobaton has been with GRMC since 2014. Prior to his promotion, Lobaton served as Assistant Vice President, Materials Management.

Lobaton has been a force at GRMC managing the hospital’s supply chain, procuring all items necessary for the hospital’s continuing success, from medical equipment to medicines. Under his supervision, Materials Management has been able to secure hard-to-source items that are crucial to GRMC’s operations despite challenges in the supply chain due to COVID-19.

Several key departments are part of GRMC’s Material Management, Lobaton also oversees the hospital’s supply processing, distribution, purchasing, receiving, inventory management, housekeeping, linen, and food services operations. Lobaton’s ability to expertly oversee so many key departments was recognized in January 2015 when he was presented with the 2015 Executive Award. In 2018, Lobaton was recognized again with the CEO Award for his “tireless dedication to worthy causes and your willingness to share your knowledge.”

“Bernie has been a tremendous asset to GRMC since his first day. His ability to adapt to change and overcome any challenge that has presented itself has been remarkable. He effectively runs several of GRMC’s key departments and never says no to a challenge,” said CEO/President Alan Funtanilla. “His response to the current disruptions in the supply chain has not stopped him from using his vast experience to obtain what GRMC needs to operate effectively, efficiently, and safely.”

GRMC expects Lobaton will thrive in his new role as Vice President of Support Services and looks forward to the contributions he will continue to make towards GRMC’s goal to provide excellent healthcare to our patients and the community.
