More parking bays, other upgrades for JB's Hospital Sultan Ismail, says MB

Patients and visitors at Hospital Sultan Ismail will be able to enjoy a more comfortable parking situation starting Thursday (Feb 2).

JOHOR BARU: Patients and visitors at Hospital Sultan Ismail (HSI) will have more parking bays starting Thursday (Feb 2).

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi said the upgrades, which included more parking spaces, came from the state government’s allocation of RM500,000 in August last year.

"I hope the upgrade will also reduce traffic congestion, which has always been an issue at the hospital for years.

"With the cooperation of state health and unity committee chairman Ling Tian Soon as well as the relevant agencies such as the Health Department, Public Works Department, we can make a difference," he said after visiting the site on Thursday (Feb 2).

Aside from the parking lot upgrades, the state government had previously allocated RM95,000 to replace HSI’s polycarbonate roofs and RM75,000 on linked chairs for its waiting area, said Onn Hafiz.

"We always try our best to assist the Health Ministry in providing quality service, not just in terms of healthcare but also infrastructure, for the comfort of the people of Johor," he said.
