Sarawak General Hospital upgrades close to completion

The Sarawak General Hospital upgrades which include roads and buildings will see much improvements to one of Borneo’s biggest referral hospitals.

Road in particular will be wider from 24 May as Asaljuru Weida Sdn Bhd (AWSB), the concessionaire for the upgrading of Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) announced that roads within the hospital compound will be open as two-way streets from that date.

In a news carried out by the Borneo Post, the company was quoted as saying that the road works within the hospital compound are completed and ready to be used.

The roads in mention can be seen in the map below, with the company also adding that traffic wardens will be on duty to guide traffic during the initial period.

About the SGH upgrade

On another note, construction works on a medi-hotel, seen above to be known as Serapi Verdure Hotel, and a multistory carpark in for the hospital is now close to completion.

The construction of all the physical upgrades in the hospital was supposed to start in July 2014, but eventually only started when the WEIDA Group was awarded the contract worth RM351 millions in April 2017.

The Edge then reports that the project involves building a daycare centre, a medi-hotel with a multi-storey car park and a multi-storey car park complex for the Sarawak General Hospital in Kuching.

WEIDA will then also provide asset management services to the new buildings and facilities upon completion, as well as operate the medi-hotel and car park.

Work has since progressed well with AWSB announcing that both projects would soon be completed hence further increase parking slots available for patients and staff of this hospital which is the biggest hospital in Sarawak.

Sarawak General hospital upgrades had been an outstanding issue for years, and the completion of a multistory carpark, and the Serapi Verdure Hotel, which also has a multistory carpark, will hopefully solve the problem in the future.
