Malaysia-based international healthcare provider, Columbia Asia Group today officially opened its new Columbia Asia Hospital-Bukit Rimau in Shah Alam, developed at a cost of RM67 million.

"There is an increasing demand for affordable healthcare services and we are excited to bring this new hospital to residents in Bukit Rimau and the surrounding communities," said Chief Executive Officer, Southeast Asia, Columbia Asia Group, Kelvin Tan.

"This facility will also augment our other seven hospitals in Malaysia in line with our goal of becoming the preferred choice for employers, insurance companies and middle-income families across Asia," he said in a statement here today.

The hospital in Bukit Rimau is the eighth Columbia Asia community hospital in Malaysia after one each in Miri and Bintulu in Sarawak, Seremban, Taiping, Shah Alam, Puchong and Nusajaya (Johor).

It plans to open three more hospitals namely in Cheras Selatan and Setapak in Kuala Lumpur and in Seremban. These hospitals are expected to be operational in phases from early next year to 2012.
