Hospital in Kuantan to cater for heart patients

Heart patients can look forward to better care at a new facility in Kuantan, Pahang.

The KPJ Pahang Specialist Hospital, which opened officially in Tanjung Lumpur on 6th October 2016 will have specialists to attend to such patients.

KPJ Healthcare Bhd chairman Abdul Wahab Baba said the hospital would be developed for healthcare tourism.

The hospital will be able to cater to between 200 and 250 patients. “Presently, we can only provide 110 beds but we will increase the capacity soon,’’ he said.

The hospital was built at a cost of RM110mil, with RM70mil more spent on its clinical information system. He said there had also been an increase in the number of patients needing oncology and kidney treatment in the east coast. “This has prompted us to provide such treatment at our centre in Alor Akar,’’ he added.
