KUCHING: A new Timberland Medical Centre (TMC) will be built in a 5-acre area within Naim Group of Companies’ Kuching Paragon, it was announced on Friday.

Established in 1994, TMC is currently situated at the 3rd mile roundabout at Rock Road here.
Charis Goh, board director and member of the executive committee of TMC said the new site was confirmed after an in-depth study of various site options.

’For the past 26 years, the founding doctors have steadfastly built up the current TMC facility with a firm belief in affordable and quality healthcare for all. Looking ahead, notwithstanding the Covid-19 situation, we stay committed to build on that legacy for future generations, so that TMC remains the hospital of choice for our patients, doctors and staff in Kuching and beyond.

Naim Kuching Paragon was selected due to its strategic location in the heart of the city, a short drive away from the Sarawak General Hospital and the Kuching International Airport, as well as the existing site which can be re-developed as a complementary healthcare facility.’

Goh added that the new purpose-built hospital will provide a state-of-the-art healing environment, and is expected to be completed by 2024. The proposed 200-bed hospital will offer a wider range of healthcare services such as radiation oncology to complement TMC’s existing suite of medical services, and will improve the private healthcare offering in Sarawak.

Meanwhile, Naim’s group deputy managing director, Christina Wong, thanked TMC for making Naim Kuching Paragon the home of its new hospital.

‘We are excited to have a reputable brand like TMC as part of our Naim Kuching Paragon family. Indeed, we are honoured for TMC’s trust towards Naim Kuching Paragon. We greatly look forward to welcoming TMC in time to come.’
