On Thursday, March 14, 2002, in town to visit the Indonesian-Australian Business Council Conference being held at Nusa Dua, Australia's Minister for Trade, Mr. Mark Valle, accompanied by Australia's Ambassador to Indonesia, Mr. Richard C. Smith, AO, paid a call on the Bali International Medical Center (BIMC), centrally located on Bali's Ngurah Rai Bypass road.
Their visit to the very successful Australian-Indonesian joint-venture allowed a first-hand opportunity to view the clinic recognized as the leader in the provision of international standard primary healthcare services to residents and visitors to Bali.
A recent expansion program has resulted in a more than 600% increase in size of the medical facility and a significant expansion in the range of medical support services available to the public.
A dedicated emergency medical and trauma care center is now backed up by x-ray, pathology and pharmacy facilities together with a small fleet of Bali's best equipped emergency care ambulances. To ensure their critical care team of doctors and nurses are as good as the BIMC's sophisticated medical technology, the Center hosts an ongoing program of skill and technology transfer with visiting emergency room physicians from the University of California (UCLA) in the United States.
Fortunately, the majority of BIMC's patients never see the emergency and trauma section of the center, receiving treatment in their Doctor's consultation rooms that offer a complete range of polyclinic services.
In order to keep pace with the growing demand for international medical support for Bali's visitors, the BIMC will soon introduce a dialysis unit, allowing international travelers requiring this service to enjoy their holidays in Bali with a minimum of fuss.
