Collaboration between City Council and Pantai Hospital has resulted in the establishment of Ipoh’s first community clinic located at the lobby of MBI’s main building. The clinic was officially opened on June 3 by Mayor Dato’ Roshidi Hashim and Pantai Hospital CEO, Dr. Dilshaad Ali. Roshidi thanked Pantai Hospital for its commitment in ensuring the success of the clinic, a project under the hospital’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme and in line with MBI’s Local Agenda 21. The clinic is the first to be established at a local council in the country. Its primary objective is to provide free medical service to members of the community and to raise the level of awareness on health care. It operates every Wednesday between 9 a.m. to 1p.m. and is managed by Pantai Hospital’s medical staff. Each week the clinic will focus on a different theme such as general wellness and healthy lifestyle.
