(1/20/2003)

In a ceremony presided over by Indonesia's Minister of Health, Ahmad Sujudi, and the Minister for State Owned Enterprises, Laksamana Sukardi, Rp. 56 billion (approximately US$ 6.4 million) was handed to Bali's Sanglah General Hospital to help establish an international standard medical facility for the Island.

In partial fulfillment of a promised made by Minister Sukardi at the Bali Memorial Concert held on November 15, 2002, that Bali would soon be the site of a world class medical center, the donation was received by Sanglah's President Director, Dr. IGN Lanang M. Rudiartha, in a ceremony at the hospital held on Monday, December 30, 2002.

The funds were comprised of Rp. 50 billion donated by local business groups and an additional Rp. 6 billion from the State Budget.

In delivering the fund to Bali's main hospital, the Minister of Health said that despite the praise heaped on Sanglah Hospital by international agencies for their heroic efforts following the terrorist attack of October 12th, those working at the facility must be the first to admit that their current resuscitation and restoration capabilities fell below international standards. The badly needed funds will be used to accelerate the ongoing efforts to upgrade Bali's medical facilities and services.

The Sanglah General Hospital in Bali currently employs 167 specialist doctors and 200 nursing and paramedic staff. In recent years the hospital have established modern trauma and reproductive health centers, and a modern blood donor center donated by Rotary Clubs from Bali, Japan, the United States, and Canada.

Also attending the ceremony marking the substantial donation for improving medical services was Mr. Taufik Kiemas, a Member of the Indonesian Parliament and husband to Indonesia's President.
