BANTING: Shah Alam Hospital has changed its status from hybrid Covid-19 to the first fully non-Covid-19 hospital in Selangor.
Selangor Health director Datuk Dr Sha’ari Ngadiman (pic) said following the change in status effective yesterday, Shah Alam Hospital would now only receive non-Covid-19 cases while pandemic cases would only be attended to at the emergency department level.
“We will refer Covid-19 cases to Ampang Hospital, Sungai Buloh Hospital and the Low Risk Covid-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centre at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang.
“Now that Shah Alam Hospital has been made a fully non-Covid-19 hospital, it can carry out surgeries and operations like a normal hospital,” he said after visiting a Selangor vaccine outreach dispensing centre here yesterday.
He added that the decision was made following a change in status for Ampang Hospital, which was made a fully Covid-19 treatment hospital effective Wednesday.
He said his department was aiming to convert two more Covid-19 hybrid hospitals – Kajang Hospital and Banting Hospital – to fully non-Covid-19 hospitals. — Bernama
