RESIDENTS in Manjoi can expect better delivery of healthcare services following the construction of a new RM27mil health clinic in Kampung Masjid.

The new Manjoi Clinic will replace the old building which was demolished to give way to the construction.

Newly appointed Perak Health director Dr Ding Lay Ming said some 40,000 residents in Manjoi would benefit from the new facility

“It will also help reduce the big volume of patients going to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital,” she said during the groundbreaking ceremony.

“The facility is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2020. Work on levelling the ground of the 0.5ha project site is currently at 4%,” she added.

The clinic is operating temporarily at a hall near the current site during the construction period.

The new five-storey facility will have an oral health clinic, maternal and children health clinic, rehabilitation unit, pathology lab and imaging unit, among others.

Dr Ding noted that last year, more than 35,000 patients sought emergency treatment at the clinic, while over 15,000 patients visited the clinic’s maternal and children health department. — By ALLISON LAI
