SIBU: KPJ Sibu Specialist Medical Centre has installed state-of-the-art medical equipment called 64 Slice CT Scan which has better radiology and imaging capabilities.

KPJ Healthcare Berhad’s senior group general manager Abdol Wahab Baba said this RM2 million marvel offered faster image acquisition, better image quality, and higher accuracy rate when compared to the older version.

"Since taking over Sibu Specialist Medical Centre, KPJ has also invested in a modern mammogram equipment, stress test machine, and a 3D ultrasound gadget valued at RM563,000," he said at the official launching of the CT Scan by Second Minister of Finance Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh here yesterday.

Also present were KPJ Sibu Specialist Medical centre’s medical director Dr Wong Chya Wei, senior manager Mohamad Hafiz Zaini, director Dr Sengkathir Subramaniam, and director of KPJ Love Care Centre Dr Henry Toh Yew King.

Abdol said KPJ Sibu Specialist Medical Centre was the 21st hospital under the flagship of KPJ Healthcare Berhad.

The hospital was acquired early this year, he said, adding that currently the hospital had 35 beds, nine resident consultants, and 11 visiting consultants.

As of today, KPJ Healthcare Bhd boasts 24 hospitals in Malaysia and two in Indonesia.

Abdol revealed that as of last month, KPJ Sibu had generated revenue totaling RM15.6 million, an increase of 37 per cent as compared to the corresponding period last year. The number of patients increased from 11,739 to 61,886, an increase of 427 per cent.

On quality standards, Abdol said KPJ had been striving for international standards in its various sections over the years.

At present, 10 of its hospitals have been accredited by the Malaysian Society for Quality in Health (MSQH), namely KPJ Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital, KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital, KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital, KPJ Johor Specialist Hospital, KPJ Selangor Specialist Hospital, KPJ Seremban Specialist Hospital, KPJ Perdana Specialist Hospital, Kedah Medical centre, KPJ Kajang Specialist Hospital, and KPJ Penang Specialist Hospital.
