SEREMBAN: The Negri Sembilan government plans to build a second specialist hospital in the state to ease congestion at the existing one, the state legislative assembly was told.
State Health, Environment, Cooperatives and Consumerism Committee chairman S. Veerapan said the state government had made its proposal to the Health Ministry and was awaiting its approval.
“This second (specialist) hospital in Negri Sembilan is in our plans; we have proposed it to the ministry.
“If it can be built it will ease congestion at the (current) hospital and parking problems.
“I have visited a site in Bandar Enstek, Nilai, belonging to the ministry, which I feel is suitable for the second hospital,” he said.
He was replying to a supplementary question from Datuk Adnan Abu Hassan (BN-Senaling), who wanted to know whether the state government has any plans to build another specialist hospital. — Bernama
