Darul Ehsan Medical Centre (DEMC) is building a RM220 million Women and Children’s Specialist Hospital (WCH) in Shah Alam, targeted for completion by January 2018.

This is the first specialist hospital in the country where it is dedicated solely for women and children. It will offer a wide range of specialist services such as obstetrics and gynecology, Urogynae, maternal fetal medicine, infertility treatment, pediatric neurology, pediatric dentistry, pediatric surgery and child development.

The 19-storey DEMC WCH facility will include 150 wards, three operating theatres, eight labour rooms, four intensive care unit (ICU) wards, and four neonatal ICU wards.

This boutique hospital also features a health spa for mothers and children, a crèche, mini home-theatre for children, rooms for caretaker and a range of cafes and restaurants for visitors.

In a statement, DEMC WCH said

It hopes the hospital will help to boost Selangor medical tourism portfolio. It hopes to attract those seeking healthcare treatment from Indonesia, Australia and Middle East.

According to the Health Ministry, foreign patients increased to 770,000 in 2013 which amounted to RM690 million as compared to 393,000 foreign patients in 2010 amounting to RM379 million.
