The Petra Jaya Hospital is currently in its design process and will be up for tender once the design has been finalized.
A design consultant has been consulted to look into the matter.
The hospital will be located on a 40-acre land in Petra Jaya and should be fully completed in three years. It is said to boast of some 300-beds, with all the basic specialist services.
Previously, there has been a lot of speculation of the location of Kuching’s second general hospital with Pehin Sri Taib Mahmud saying he would prefer one at Semariang.
