SHAH ALAM: Shah Alam Hospital is expected to start itsÂ operations next year with the delivery and certification of facilities and
equipment in full swing now.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam said here today that the 2,300Â rooms at the RM410 million hospital complex required thorough inspection and theÂ equipment to be tested to ensure they would function well.
“Hopefully the delivery and certification process for the facilities andÂ equipment will be completed in the next five months.
“The department involved in building the hospital complex will apply to theÂ Shah Alam City Council for the Certificate of Compliance and Completion,”Â he said.
Subramaniam was speaking to reporters after visiting the hospital project,Â which is now 94 per cent completed and in the final stages of beautificationÂ before being opened to the public.
According to him, the hospital should have commenced operations in 2011 butÂ failed to be ready on time and hence a new contractor was apppointed to completeÂ the project.
Meanwhile, he said the assets control system whether for hospital buildingsÂ or equipment needed to be tightened as these government-owned assets wereÂ costly.
Dr Subramaniam said for assets control, the government had to emphasise theÂ use of the latest sophisticated technology as the system currently in use wasÂ rather outdated.–BERNAMA
