Community Clinic for DUN Subang Jaya

Article from SJ Echo

SUBANG JAYA: The days of hefty and expensive health care bills for the poor living in Subang Jaya are over.

A joint effort by the private health care sector and Masjid Al-Falah in USJ9 will be setting up a community clinic to see to the needs of the poor in this neighbourhood, ADUN Subang Jaya Hannah Yeoh said.

"A joint partnership between KPJ healthcare group and Masjid Al-Falah has been formed to establish a community clinic at their premises in USJ9."

"We do not have a government clinic in Subang Jaya at this point. We are still asking for this from the Health Ministry but since we do not have one, I am so glad that the private sector has come forward to help," she said.

Hannah said the clinic is now serving the community twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from a cabin put up at the mosque in USJ9.

"It is open for all races who are poor and cannot afford hefty bills in private healthcare. They charge only RM5 per consultation."

"Please make full use of this facility but don't abuse it. If you can afford to go to private clinics, please go to private clinics and let the deserving people benefit from this new facility we have for them," Hannah added.

A new building will be constructed to house this clinic at the mosque compound by June this year to properly serve even kidney failure patients with dialysis machines at their disposal.
