KUALA LUMPUR, May 8 – The Ministry of Health (MOH) today rebranded Serdang Hospital as Sultan Idris Shah, Serdang Hospital.
At the rebranding ceremony officiated by Selangor ruler Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah and Selangor Tengku Permaisuri, Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin, the MOH said Serdang Hospital began operations in 2005 with 668 beds.
“Serdang Hospital began its first service with the nephrology specialty and now has 22 clinical specialties,” MOH said on its Facebook page.
“Serdang Hospital is the main referral centre for private medical services, and is also the referral centre for public cardiology services nationwide.”
Sultan Idris Shah, Serdang Hospital recently established a Heart Centre that can reduce waiting time for angiograms from 18 months to nine months for stable elective cases. Emergency cases are still given immediate treatment.
“The Heart Centre, which began operations on December 12, 2022, in phases – in terms of the filling of vacancies and equipment – is expected to make cardiac services at Serdang Hospital to be among the best in not just the country, but also Southeast Asia,” MOH said.
Sultan Idris Shah, Serdang Hospital’s Heart Centre, with eight storeys, has 262 beds and 536 car park spots.
