Star: KOTA MARUDU: The controversy over the handing over of Alor Star’s new RM500mil Hospital Sultanah Bahiyah has been resolved. The hospital is now in the hands of the Health Ministry.
Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said yesterday that the letter on the handover had been sent to the Health Ministry.
“The matter is settled. I already called my D-G and the official handover letter was sent on March 15 (Thursday),” he said after a briefing at the district office here.
“We do not have any more problems regarding the land issues.”
The new hospital, which will replace Hospital Alor Star, had initially been scheduled for completion in 2003 but had been delayed several times.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek had expressed regret over the delays in the handing over of the hospital.
Samy Vellu, meanwhile, said that the RM330mil works on upgrading the Kota Marudu-Ranau road would be implemented soon.
