Bali House of Representatives Impatient with Delayed Plans for Bali International Hospital

Commission IV of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) have called on governor Made Mangku Pastika to realize his plan to build the Mandara Bali International Hospital (RSI).

Legislators also say that if, for whatever reason, the RSI is now considered too difficult to build the Rp. 200 billion already allocated for its construction should be diverted to other programs.
The DPRD-Bali plans to soon call the governor to seek an update on the RSI project.
Nusa Bali quotes Ketut Kariyasa Adnyana, a member of Commission IV of the DPRD-Bali, who said the RSI project, first proposed by governor Pastika should materialize during the second term of the governor.
Said Kariyasa: “We will ask the Head of the House to invite the Governor or the Head of the Health Department to explain the fate of the Bali International Hospital project. Let’s not have the project budgeted every year, but end up as an unspent item. If, indeed, it’s difficult to materialize, then let’s just stop the RSI Bali Mandara Project and use the money on other programs. I have also been told that efforts to tender the RSI project have failed on several occasions.”
NusaBali confirms that the building permit (IMB) for the RSI Bali Mandara project had been issued, after some initial delay over the building’s violation of the maximum 15-meter building height.
The location listed in the IMB is in the village of Sanur Kauh and is planned to house 200 patient rooms, with 25% of the total rooms reserved for the care and treatment of Balinese holding a provincial Medicare card (JKBM).
NusaBali reports that the Thompson Medical Singapore has agreed to invest in the project, but a formal joint-venture agreement has yet to be signed.
The RSI project will occupy a 29,530 square meter plot and will include a restaurant, hotel and other facilities, in addition to the 200-room hospital.
The three stated rationales given for establishing the RSI project are a) the need to enlarge the variety of medical treatments available to the public in Bali while increasing the carrying capacity of the Bali medical infrastructure, b) the desire to develop medical services that will end the current tendency on the part of the Balinese to seek medical treatment abroad, and c) a desire to create inbound medical tourism to Bali.
