Women and Children's Hospital: To be Opened in Q3, 2017

The new Wo­­men and Children’s Hospital within Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) will be ready as early as August, 2017.

Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam said the facility is 99% completed and will open its doors in August or September, 2017.

“All maternity and children’s services will be moved there,” he said during a visit to HKL’s emergency department yesterday.

The RM848mil complex for women and children will have 600 beds and help ease congestion at the existing Paediatrics’ Institute.

Another project that has been approved is a new operating theatre complex, which will have an intensive care unit and additional wards. “The tender process for the project will be called in a few months,” he added.

Another RM40mil to upgrade the emergency department. has also been committed.

The outpatient, non-emergency clinic in Jalan Flet­cher, built at a cost of RM50mil, was opened last month, April 2017, to ease the congestion at the emergency department.

An MRT station would be built for HKL, scheduled for completion in 2022. Meanwhile, DUKE Highway had also been requested to build an access road to the Hospital.
