JOHOR BARU: Johor Corporation (JCorp) is looking forward to working with newly-minted Johor Mentri Besar Dr Sahruddin Jamal.

"We also hope to hold a briefing for him when he visits our headquarters here in the near future," he said Monday (April 15).

Kamaruzzaman, who is also KPJ Healthcare Bhd chairman, told reporters this at the topping-off ceremony for the additional building of KPJ Puteri Specialist Hospital here.

The RM60mil building on a 0.967ha site is already 60% completed and the new wing with 200 beds is expected to open for business in the first quarter of next year.

"We have never worked with Dr Sahruddin but looking forward to working with him," he added.

The Johor Mentri Besar automatically becomes the chairman of JCorp, which has diversified business activities including, among others, healthcare, quick service restaurants, plantations and property development.
