Bali’s provincial government says it will build an international hospital for residents entitled to free healthcare and for foreigners.
Governor Made Mangku Pastika said in Denpasar on Wednesday that the planned “tourist hospital” would be built to accommodate an increasing number of tourists, antaranews.com reported.
The administration will allocate up to Rp 300 billion (US$33) and 3 hectares in a strategic location for the project.
“The hospital will provide an international standard of healthcare for the people, especially those who have references from community health centers or regency hospitals,” Pastika said.
Local residents were currently treated at busy Sanglah General Hospital, he said, which as a regional hospital accepts patients from East and West Nusa Tenggara.
