The Penang Adventist Hospital has officially introduced its new RM3.3 million Heart Centre to meet the increasing needs in heart health among patients.
Its president and chief executive officer, Ronald Koh said the hospital's current Heart Centre had been operating at the maximum capacity for a while and due to demand, it decided to invest in the new centre.
He said the hospital's cardiac team currently treated between 3,000 and 3,500 outpatients on a monthly basis.
"As the need for cardiac care service grows exponentially, it is imperative we upgrade our facility to continuously provide the increasing demand of our local, as well as international patients.”
"The new state-of-the-art facility is equipped with leading-edge technology to detect and diagnose heart disease with its 10 consultation rooms and eight new procedure rooms which also feature additional space for a rapid patient assessment," he said,
Koh said all the heart equipment worth more than RM7 million would be placed in the newly completed 8,700 sqft Heart Centre.
