Did you know:
- There is a heated Hydrotherapy Pool inside Hospital Fatimah?
- Hospital Fatimah’s Radiology Department is the only Radiology Department in Malaysia which has an “Underwater World” ambience?
- Hospital Fatimah provides Fango Heat Therapy? What is Fango Heat Therapy?
The Hospital is showcasing its Radiology Department, Physiotherapy Department and the laboratory of Gribbles Pathology to the corporate clients of the Hospital, general practitioners, specialist doctors, partners in service and the community of Ipoh.
The Hospital’s Radiology Department will be introducing its spectrum of diagnostic services on this one-day-only event. Some of the modern diagnostic technologies available in Hospital Fatimah are the 128-slice Computed Tomography Scanner, or better known as the 128-slice CT Scanner, the Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI, Computed Radiography System and lots more. This Department is unique due to its “Underwater World” ambience and for having the fastest 128-slice CT Scanner in town.
While the 128-slice CT Scanner is the star of our Radiology Department, the heated Hydrotherapy Pool is the main attraction of our Physiotherapy Department. The heated pool, which has been refurbished, was built since the Hospital’s inception in 1974. When your joints are stiff and in pain, even gravity can seem to be against you. Hydrotherapy will help you feel light again. Water provides a buoyancy and weightlessness, which are useful for people with stiff joints. In a heated pool, the joints can become supple and flexible.
The other star of our Physiotherapy Department is the Fango Heat Therapy. Fango is Italian volcanic mud made from volcanic ash imported from Germany. Fango, when directly applied on affected joints, produces rapid heat induction and pain relief.
The Gribbles Group was established in 1936 in Adelaide, Australia and was acquired by Healthscope Limited (second largest private health care operator in Australia) in December 2004. Gribbles Malaysia was established in 1996 and now is a part of Healthscope Group, Australia. Gribbles Pathology in Hospital Fatimah was accredited with MS ISO 15189 standards by the Department of Standards, Malaysia in 2010.
