Irked by delays in Sarawak hospital projects

Three high-profile hospital projects in Sarawak are seriously delayed for a variety of reasons.

The Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) in Kuching is the main referral hospital for the entire state besides being the only public hospital for the 700,000 or so residents of the city. Finding a parking space in the vicinity of the hospital is a daily nightmare for those city folk who need access to it.

And talk of adding a multi-storey car park to the hospital – a most obvious solution to the unending woes of a greatly inconvenienced public – has been going on for close to a decade now, with no action in sight. It is a no-brainer why this matter has become something of a cause celebre for the political opposition.
