PUTRAJAYA: The RM104mil Rembau Hospital in Negri Sembilan will be opened in June, Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad (pic) said.

He said the 76-bed hospital, the construction of which began in September 2013, would be part of a hospital cluster with Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital in Seremban, which means specialists from there would visit the Rembau Hospital regularly to provide their services.

“The local residents will get the best health services,” he said, adding it was now 90% completed.

Speaking after a meeting with pharmaceutical industry players here, Dr Dzulkefly also said the proposed upgrading of two health clinics in Rantau and Bandar Baru Sendayan in Negri Sembilan to Type 3 facilities would start soon and each project cost RM35mil.

The health clinics would have quarters for staff and be able to provide support and clinical services to about 800 patients a day, he said.
