Public hospital for Shah Alam


SHAH ALAM: Selangor's capital will have its first public hospital soon. It will be built on a 12ha piece of land in Section 7 to reduce the congestion at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in neighbouring Klang. 

State Health, Tourism and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Datuk Dr Lim Thuang Seng said yesterday that the project was approved by the Health Ministry last year and tenders for the construction have been awarded. 

Construction is expected to be completed in two to three years, he added. 

The new 300-bed hospital, costing about RM300mil, would be the 12th public hospital in Selangor. 

Shah Alam has several private hospitals but no general hospital. 

Dr Lim said the new hospital would have an emergency unit and various specialist sections such as paediatric, orthopaedic, ENT (ear, nose and throat), obstetrics and gynaecology, physiology and anaesthesiology. 

“The new hospital can provide better services to people here besides reducing the burden on the overloaded Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital,” he said.
