The community of Cyberjaya will see the completion of its first hospital in the area by 2020. Spanning 12.8 acres in the vicinity of Cyber 11, the 288-bed facility will not only serve the residents of Cyberjaya but also those in Puchong, Dengkil, and Sepang. The public hospital will consist of a 9-storey complex and will be complemented with an 8-storey multi-level carpark, for a total of 965 parking bays.
“Hospital Cyberjaya is an example of efforts by the government in providing smart facilities and solutions for the rakyat as the country forges ahead in increasing the standards of our healthcare system,” said Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam, Minister of Health Malaysia at the groundbreaking ceremony of the hospital.
According to the Health Minister, this hospital will be built with attention to environmental sustainability and energy-efficient design features.
“Apart from Hospital Cyberjaya, there are approximately 10 other hospitals being built in the country that are designed with green features, adhering to the Green Building Index (GBI) certification standards of sustainability. On that note, I am pleased to announce that Hospital Cyberjaya will be the first hospital in the country to achieve Platinum Rating under the GBI certification standards,” said Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam.
Sustainability features of the RM475 million facility include optimal solar orientation and solar energy harvesting technology. Upon its expected completion in November 2020, the hospital will also help to reduce congestion at public hospitals in neighbouring Putrajaya and Serdang by serving a broader community beyond Cyberjaya.
“Announcement for Hospital Cyberjaya could not have come at a more significant time as the city celebrates its 20-year journey of transformation,” said Mohd Najib Ibrahim, Acting Managing Director of Cyberview Sdn Bhd.
“As we continue our focus towards Cyberjaya’s transformation into a Global Tech Hub, we remain fully committed in ensuring that the city continues to meet the evolving needs of our communities. This includes infrastructure like the Hospital Cyberjaya here which will stay true to our roots by featuring innovative and sustainable features for the benefit of the people,” added Mohd Najib.
According to Mohd Najib, the word ‘innovation’ has become a buzzword which is synonymous to patents and profits, but in Cyberjaya’s smart city setting, what is beneficial for the community must take precedence. Hospital Cyberjaya will be the pioneer hospital to use full modules under HIS@KKM, a government hospital information system platform used to efficiently manage systems including the Pharmacy Information System, Patient Management System, and Critical Care Information System, among others.
Hospital Cyberjaya is one of Cyberjaya’s many upcoming developments to further the city’s offerings, which is inclusive of the 11 major announcements made by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at Cyberjaya’s 20th Anniversary celebration back in May this year. The announcements - which include Phase 1 of the Cyberjaya City Centre, an establishment of an R&D and Innovation hub, regional fintech hub, as well as a centre for big data projects, aim to catalyse strategic collaborations and accelerate Cyberjaya’s offerings as a Smart City and a Living Lab for innovations across its infrastructure, economy, sustainability, and social elements.
Last August, Cyberview Sdn Bhd confirmed the appointment of Gadang Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd as the principal contractor for the hospital.
“It is always important for us to work with strategic partners who are capable in delivering in ways that meet Cyberjaya’s smart city infrastructural needs. We look forward to this collaboration and we are confident that Gadang Engineering has the ability to meet and deliver against expected requirements,” said Ahmad Faizul Ramli, Head of Project Management Division, Cyberview Sdn Bhd.
According to Ahmad Faizul, the 288-bed facility will also have an area allocated for future expansion to accommodate an additional 150 beds.
