Port Dickson Hospital’s additional building to start operating by 2020

A new four-storey building to be built at the Port Dickson Hospital in Malaysia is expected to begin operations by early 2020, Malaysian Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr. S. Subramaniam announced. The new building will help accommodate the high bed occupancy rate at the hospital.

The additional building will be built in a two-hectare area with an allocation of RM150 million. It will be equipped with 140 beds and will house specialist clinics, four wards, four operating rooms and other facilities, Dr. Subramaniam said.

"Currently, the building that was built in 1994 has 90 beds and has a high rate of usage reaching 100%," he added.

Dr. Subramaniam said the Health Ministry also planned to increase the number specialists in the hospital to ensure that it becomes a comprehensive minor specialist hospital.
