A coincidence that would only occur once in a blue moon just happened at Columbia Asia Hospital Iskandar Puteri (CAH-IP) on 1st January 2020 where 11 couples had their babies delivered on the first day of the new decade.
All mothers and babies were well under the care of Dr. Rajesh Mahendran Radha Krishnan, Consultant Obstetrics & Gynecologist; Dr. Rohaini Md Jonit, Consultant Obstetrics & Gynecologist; Dr. Quek Yek Song, Consultant Obstetrics & Gynecologist; Dr. Razlina Johari, Consultant Pediatrician; Dr. Victor Gong Hee Hung, Consultant Pediatrician; and Dr. Azhar Napis, Consultant Pediatrician, who is also the Chief of Medical Services of CAH-IP assisted by well-trained midwives and nurses of CAH-IP.
“What a way to start the New Year. We felt excited with the new arrivals for all the parents, but most importantly was the safe delivery and care for the mothers. At CAH-IP, we have a passion for making people better and our mission is to deliver the best clinical outcomes in the most effective, efficient and caring environment for our patients. I am also glad to inform that CAH-IP will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year,” said Puan Rahani Yaacob, Regional General Manager.
In a double celebratory spirit, CAH-IP extended a gift pack for each of the families filled with heartwarming notes.
The 135-bedded CAH-IP is a multi-specialty hospital built in accordance with Columbia Asia’s prototype community hospital design.
