Sri Aman Hospital 2 expected to be operational in August



THE SRI AMAN Hospital 2 has been physically completed and it is expected to be operational in August 2022.

Deputy Minister for Public Health, Housing and Local Government II Michael Tiang said the authorities were currently conducting final inspection, testing and commissioning of the hospital.

He said when answering questions from Lingga assemblywoman, Dayang Noorazah Awang Sohor during the second day of the 19th State Legislative Assembly (DUN) sitting here today.

When asked on the placement of specialist doctors, Michael said Sri Aman Hospital has already been upgraded into a Minor Specialist Hospital since 2011.

“To-date, Sri Aman Hospital has four different specialities namely, Internal Medicine, Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Psychiatric.

“When the upcoming Sri Aman Hospital 2 is fully operational, an additional three specialities will be included namely, General Surgery, Orthopaedics and Anaesthesiology,” he added.

He also pointed out that Sri Aman Hospital is currently having 11 dialysis machines and the upcoming Sri Aman Hospital 2 will have extra sixteen 16 dialysis machines.

“Therefore, the dialysis machines are sufficient to cater the total number of dialysis patients in Sri Aman including dialysis patients from DUN N.28 Lingga,” he said.

Meanwhile, he mentioned that there are two health clinics in DUN Lingga area, which are Lingga Health Clinic and Tanjung Bijat Health Clinic.

“Both clinics are manned by two Medical Officers and provide basic medical services such as Outpatient services, Maternal and Child services and Pharmacy,” he added.

On Lingga Health Clinic, he said that the renovation for the clinic was approved under Rolling Plan 2 of the 12th Malaysia Plan (RMK-12) in 2022 and expected for completion toward the end of 2022.

“The plan to upgrade Lingga Health Clinic includes renovation of physical structure of the building such as floor repairing, repainting and upgrading of car parks,” he explained.

He said apart from that, there is a plan to replace the current Tanjung Bijat Health Clinic into Health Clinic Type 5 with quarters under Rancangan Malaysia Ke-12 (RMK-12).
