Despite recent reports that the Government would forgo plans to build a new international-standard hospital and instead focus on improving the facilities of the existing Sanglah General Hospital, indications have now surfaced that Bali's Udayana University is actively pursuing plans to build a world class facility connected with the island's main school of higher learning.
A committee, operating under the supervision of Bali's Governor and representatives from the Provincial Parliament, is busily compiling plans for a medical center expected to cost Rp. 250 billion (approximately US$ 24.4 million).
Funds for the proposed hospital are expected to be secured via loans from the State's Social Security System Jamsostek with the final shareholding in the facility projected to be comprised of a 48% share for Jamsostek, 1% for the regional government in Bali, and the remaining 51% in the hands of local business groups.
