Expecting couples will be pleased to hear about the newest delivery package offered by KPJ Johor. Held at KPJ Johor Specialist Hospital on the 16th of November, the launch was hosted and endorsed by three resident veterans of obstetrics & gynaecology medicine; Dr Shahrifah Shahirah, Dr Mohanraj Krishnasamy and Dr Lim Keng Joo who shares more than 25 years of experience from the United Kingdom, Malaysia and Australia between them.
Having been in operation for 38 years in Johor, “KPJ’s aim has always been to be the premier healthcare provider in the region, being the first choice after the government hospital for those seeking to welcome their new baby,” said Mohd Azhar Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer of the Johor Specialist Hospital. By taking into consideration the current climate of the economy, the delivery package aims to be affordable to all levels of income and prioritises safe delivery complete with professional care for soon-to-be mothers and infants by qualified physicians and staff members.
The launch saw a positive turnout with 28 soon-to-be parents who were excited about the delivery package with a lucky few bringing home gifts such as baby mattresses, baby blankets and a manual breast pump through the lucky draw organised. An antenatal class was also organised and held by Dr Mohanraj after the launch to further assist parents going through the pregnancy period.
The Delivery Package is split into two different categories. One being a normal delivery and the other, a lower segment caesarean section (LSCS) delivery priced at RM3000 for a 2 Day 1 Night stay and RM8800 for a 3 Day 2 Night stay respectively.
