The Ipoh City Council (MBI) allocated RM300,000 to upgrade the Manjoi Multipurpose Hall as the Manjoi Temporary Clinic.
Executive Councillor for Health, Science, Environment and Green Technology, Muhammad Akmal Kamarudin said the state government had appealed to the MBI to help implement the upgrading works of the clinic.
“The building currently housing the temporary clinic is formerly the Kampung Manjoi Multipurpose Hall. It was made into a temporary clinic in 2016 when the old Manjoi Health Clinic was demolished to make way for new construction.
“The building is owned by the Ipoh District and Land Office. It is located about 80 metres from the new building construction site of the Manjoi Health Clinic under the Public Works Department (JKR).
“The construction works of the new clinic building began on March 6, 2018. However, it was postponed and involved the termination of contract on February 12, 2020. To continue the project worth RM26,427,805, JKR appointed a new contractor. The construction began on September 17, 2021 and is expected to complete on September 14, 2023,” he told the media after the upgrade project handover ceremony recently.
Meanwhile, Mayor Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin@Md Daud stated that the Manjoi Temporary Clinic receives about 250 to 300 patients a day.
“The completed upgrade can bring motivation to the frontliners, as it is equipped with better facilities and comfort.
“The MBI also contributed four units of wheelchairs for the use of the clinic. The donation will further facilitate the management of patients who visit the clinic for treatment,” he added.
