Government to build $8 million clinic


SERDANG - In about two years, the residents of Bandar Tun Hussein Onn will receive a new clinic after the Government gave the approval for its construction.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, who made the announcement, said that the clinic, expected to cost RM20mil, would serve the 200,000 residents in the area and its surrounding neighbourhoods.
"The then Serdang MP told me back in 2006 that the area needed a health clinic. Now the Government has committed and promised to build one," he said at the ground-breaking ceremony for the clinic here yesterday.
Liow said the time taken to have the project approved was long because of the bureaucracy involved, including submitting the plans to the state government and getting the land to be alienated to the ministry. Once completed, the clinic would serve about 500 patients daily.
Liow said the clinic would provide, among others, x-ray scans, blood tests, physiology, maternity and nutrition counselling services.
