BIMC Hospital Offers Healthful Hints Should You Need Medical Help Over Nyepi Holiday Period.

Bali News:

As reported on, both local tradition and law dictate that Bali will come to an absolute standstill on Nyepi Day, March 26, 2009.

From Sunrise on March 26th until sunrise 24 hours later, the island will resemble a ghost town with all roads devoid of traffic, the sole airport closed and with residents confined to their homes or hotels. [See: There's a Kind of Hush, All Over the Isle]

An Announcement from the BIMC Hospital

Should an emergency medical situation arise during the Nyepi period the BIMC Hospital will remain open and fully staffed throughout the period.

The public are asked to note the following:

• As is the case through all other days of the year, you are welcome to call the BIMC Hospital at 0361 – 761263 to discuss any health concerns.

• Should a medical emergency arise, guests staying at Bali hotels and villas should first check with their accommodation provider for the availability of transport to the BIMC Hospital.

• If required, BIMC Hospital's fully-equipped ambulances and drivers are on stand-by for rapid dispatch to patient locations.

• While travel on Bali's roads is not allowed during the Nyepi period, local banjars and their Klian Dinas will normally facilitate transportation during medical emergencies. As a precautionary measure, it is recommended that the telephone number of your local Klian be kept at hand.

While the BIMC Hospital team hope you have no need for their services and enjoy a healthful and peaceful start to the Balinese New Year, we suggest you keep their number handy should the need arise.
