KPJ to open 4 new medical centres

KPJ Healthcare Bhd, Malaysia's leading private healthcare provider, is on target to open four new medical centres by 2012 to add to its stable of 20 hospitals.

KPJ Healthcare, a member of the Johor Corp Group, is expected to spend nearly RM500 million on the hospitals in Bandar Baru Klang in Selangor, Pasir Gudang and Muar in Johor, and Sabah Medical Centre in Kota Kinabalu.

Its managing director, Datin Paduka Siti Sa'diah Sheikh Bakir, said it had other hospitals in the pipeline but they would be built later.

"The construction of the four hospitals is in progress and the Klang hospital, which costs nearly RM100 million including equipment, is expected to open next year.
"The RM200 million Sabah Medical Centre and the Muar and Pasir Gudang hospitals, which cost RM70 million and RM90 million respectively, are expected to open in 2012," she told reporters in Kota Baru, Kelantan, yesterday.

Siti Sa'diah was speaking after the presentation of the Malaysian Society for Quality in Health (MSQH) accreditation to its hospital, Perdana Specialist Hospital, and the subsequent change of its name to KPJ Perdana Specialist Hospital.

KPJ Perdana is the ninth hospital in the group which has received the international-standard accreditation. The others are KPJ Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital, KPJ Johor Specialist Hospital, KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital, KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital, KPJ Selangor Specialist Hospital, KPJ Seremban Specialist Hospital, KPJ Kajang Specialist Hospital and Kedah Medical Centre.

Siti Sa'diah said it had targeted four hospitals to achieve the accreditation this year and had managed to do so.

"We hope to get another four hospitals to receive the accreditation next year," she said.

The accreditation was presented by MSQH chief surveyor Dr Mary Abraham to the chairman of KPJ Perdana Specialist Hospital, Aminudin Dawam.
