M.P. Shah Hospital has boosted its bed capacity through the opening of their new KPJ Medical Centre. This is part of the hospital’s strategic plan to transform health care over the next decade. The Medical Centre, which has brought an additional 68 beds to the hospital, was launched on 25th February 2022 .
The launch of the 8-floor KPJ Medical Centre serves to curb the increasing demand for healthcare services through introducing dedicated maternity wards and a theatre for the same, which is a 100% increase in the current maternity bed capacity. It also hosts a modern physiotherapy centre that is set to be a hub for sports medicine, neurology and other speciality clinics.
“Our region is changing. A growing, ageing population and an increased incidence of chronic disease are among our greatest challenges. At the core of our operations, however, is our commitment to meet these and other challenges by supporting the ‘right workforce’ with the ‘right processes’ and the ‘right resources to provide the best healthcare for patients and their families. This project will bring tremendous benefit to patients, our hardworking and dedicated staff, and the communities we serve” Said Dr. Toseef Din, CEO of M.P. Shah Hospital.
The construction of the new centre began in November 2016, with its primary aim is to cater to the rehabilitation, oncology, surgical and medical needs of our patients. A part of the tower has also hosted COVID-19 patients, who have been treated and repatriated in excellent health, supported by the team of doctors and nurses.
The KPJ medical centre is also home to a dedicated one-of-a-kind paediatric cancer centre that is soon to be launched. This Cancer Centre is set to be among the largest in the country providing complex children’s cancer care. The centre will also be actively participating in the research and treatment of childhood cancer, aiming for the highest standards in diagnosis, research, treatment, and support. It comprises an inpatient ward with a day oncology unit, an outpatient clinic area, a dedicated oncology pharmacy, and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
