UNIVERSITI Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) plans to set up its own teaching hospital soon to complement its medical and health sciences faculty.

Unimas board of directors chairman Tan Sri Bujang Mohd Nor said the university was applying for the teaching hospital under the 10th Malaysia Plan.

“We hope it will be approved. Currently the Sarawak General Hospital and other hospitals in the state serve as our teaching hospitals,” he told reporters after opening the Unimas Daily Treatment Centre at Green Road in Kuching yesterday.

On the centre, Bujang said it was set up by Unimas’ wholly-owned subsidiary Sebayor Holdings Sdn Bhd to provide healthcare services while enabling the medical faculty’s specialist doctors to practise.

He said the centre was not meant as an undergraduate medical student training centre or solely for Unimas staff but offered general outpatient specialist services to the public.

This is how it works: (From left) Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Dr Khairuddin Ab Hamid, Bujang and the treatment centre’s medical director Dr Kamarudin Kana looking at the ultrasound facility at the centre.

“To avoid further confusion, we have agreed to change the name of the centre to Sebayor Medical Centre. The application has been submitted to the relevant authorities and we are now awaiting approval from the Health Ministry,” he said.

He added that the centre aimed to be client-friendly and offered reasonable rates for its services, which range from obstetrics and gynaecology to radiology and minor surgery.

“I hope the centre will be conscious of its commitment to corporate social responsibility. In addition to keeping the medical fees at affordable levels, you should also organise community-based activities such as health checks, blood donation drives and public talks,” he said.

Sebayor Holdings board of directors chairman Datuk Stephen Wan Tet Kyung said the centre had three consultation rooms for visiting specialists, in-house pharmacy and treatment rooms.

He said it was currently staffed by a full-time medical officer, two staff nurses and other personnel as well as 20 visiting specialist doctors.

“Today, we only occupy the ground floor but in the future we will expand our facilities to three upper floors so that more consultation rooms and services can be accommodated,” he said, adding that forthcoming services included haemodialysis, CT scans and major surgery.

The centre is open from 9am to 9pm from Monday to Friday and from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays. It is closed on Sundays and public holidays.
