KUALA LUMPUR: Tambun Indah Land Bhd and Taiwan-based Show Chwan Medical Care Corp have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to set up a private specialist hospital, Penang Show Chwan Hospital, at Pearl City in Seberang Perai Selatan.
Pearl City is a township being developed by Tambun Indah.
In a filing to Bursa Malaysia today, Tambun Indah said the project is envisaged to be a multi-disciplinary medical centre with about 250 beds on 1.62ha at Pearl City Business Park.
“The project, if established, shall cater to the population in Seberang Perai Selatan and Seberang Perai Tengah and also several well-established and large-scale industrial parks such as the Prai Industrial Park, Penang Science Park and Bukit Minyak Industrial Park,” it added.
Tambuh Indah said the project shall also contribute to promoting Penang as a major medical tourism destination or hub in the region.
The MoU shall be for six months unless extended by both parties.
