CSR at KPJ Ipoh Specialist


The management of KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital took advantage of Chinese New Year to organise a gotong-royong with Rumah Sejahtera, Council of Voluntary Welfare Association of Peninsular Malaysia (MPKSM) Jelapang, Ipoh recently. The home is occupied by 41 occupants ranging in age from 60 years and above. Thirty staff and nurses from various departments, led by Mr. Ng Chee Hoong, the Asst. Operations Manager and Ms. Phoo Siew Kwok, the Chief Nursing Officer, teamed up for this good cause. The gotong-royong saw ISH’s Housekeeping Services clean the home as Engineering Services carried out a full inspection of the electrical circuitry and changed faulty light bulbs. Meanwhile, Nursing Services provided a free health screening on blood pressure and glucose for the residents, led by Medical Officer, Dr. Sumathi. Recreational activities such as “poco-poco” dance and “chicken dance” were enjoyed by all residents followed by a lunch. On closing, each and everyone from the home received a hamper and Red Packet from the management.
