Bali Post says the final decision on a new name for Bali's Sanglah General Hospital now rests with the Indonesia’s Minister of Health. The Chief Executive Office of the Hospital, Dr. Lanang M. Rudiartha, said that from the seven names once under consideration starting from late last year two names have now been short-listed for a final selection by the Minister.
Saying he was in no hurry for the final decision to be handed down from the busy Minister of Health, Dr. Lanang insisted that main matter of concern is for the public in Bali to continue to well served by its main Health Center.
While refusing to divulge the two names on the short-list, Dr. Lanang suggested, "if possible, why not use both of the finalist's names in naming the Sanglah Hospital?"
The initial steps to rename the main hospital in downtown Denpasar got underway in October 2007 with the establishment of a select committee to narrow down the possible namesakes. The seven names eventually given consideration were:
• Dr. Soekardjo Mangoensudiro
• Dr. A.A. Made Djelantik
• Professor Dr. I Gusti Ngoerah Gde Ngoerah
• Dr. I.B. Rai
• Dr. Made Sudhiana
• Dr. I Gusti Made Brata Ranuh
• Dr. Kertahusuma
According to the Bali Post, the final two names forwarded to the Minister were those of Dr. A.A. Made Djelantik and Prof. Dr. I Gusti Ngoerah Gde Ngoerah.
