Residents in the Kempas area can look forward to getting medical treatment and related services in with the opening of a hospital here.
Menteri Besar Johor Datuk Osman Sapian said the hospital will be built on a 19ha piece of land owned by the Health Ministry.
He said the hospital was very much needed as residents seeking treatment at public hospitals would have to go to the Sultan Ismail Hospital in Pandan or the Sultanah Aminah Hospital in Johor Bahru which is highly congested.
“The hospital will have 305 beds and is expected to cost over RM 500million,” added Osman.
He added that this will not be the only hospital being built by the government as there will be another hospital that will be built in Bandar Seri Alam, Pasir Gudang.
A public hospital in the Pasir Gudang area will cater to the medical needs of about 350,000 residents from Pasir Gudang and nearby areas such as Masai, Plentong and Kong Kong.
