allocation for a new hospital
Kuala Lumpur, Mar 10, 2009:
Sepanggar Member of Parliament Datuk Eric Majimbun, said he hoped that a
building for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) as the existing building
had been declared unsafe.
"Although the 10th Malaysia Plan is 18 months away from implementation,
the Government should use the opportunity under this stimulus package to
forward its allocation for a new building for this hospital.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital is the only hospital in Sabah where the rural
folk can afford to go. We need it (the allocation) urgently," he said.
Majimbun said QEH, which is the main referral hospital in the State,
was declared unsafe last December and its patients had been transferred to
various district hospitals and the privately-owned Sabah Medical Centre
