沙巴医药中心变亚庇中央医院


政府终于批准收购沙巴医药中心(SMC)大厦。

对我来说,真是忧中有喜、喜中带忧。

喜的是,亚庇市民终于有了一所像样的中央医院。

忧的是,这条平时就交通繁忙的达迈路,从此将更繁忙,交通将更阻塞。

SMC就在我家的后面,平时就常听到忽然传来的救护车刺耳的警笛声。

甚至在三更半夜,也会被突如其来的警笛声惊醒。

既然是在深夜,救护车有必要开启警笛,惊醒周围居民的好梦吗?

老实说,我并不很赞同在此盖医院,不知SMC当初为何会获得当局批准?

首先,马路对面不远处已经有了一家Damai Specialist Centre(和平专科医院),SMC也是一家专科医院,政府为何会在这个高度稠密的住宅区批准两家专科医院?

令人百思不解。

这里还有学校,便是崇正中学。

此外,这条路也是从路阳到里卡士至少十多二十所中小学和幼稚园的必经之路。

每天,有三段最繁忙的时刻,就是早上、中午和傍晚的上下班和学生上学放学的时间,整条达迈路就可以塞上大半天。

试想想,每当有紧急事故,再遇上交通阻塞,岂不阻碍救护车救人?

当局是不是应该多开一条马路,至少当遇上达迈路交通阻塞时,救护车还有第二条路可跑?

其实,原本当年还有一条已经建了一半的马路,不知为何当局把它封死?

就是从金麟园的山坡直上,转进一条窄窄的岔路,原本可以通到Jalan Lintas的大马路,出来就是City Mall那儿。

当年SMC落成後,以为当局会把这条马路扩大,没想到反而被堵死。

在把亚庇中央医院搬来这儿的同时,当局有必要考虑重开并扩大这条马路,至少方便住在Lintas和Kelombong一带的居民穿过来,不需绕一个大圈。

The SMC may one day become the Sabah Cardio (Heart) Centre, or something else as the saying goes.

QEH definitely the referral or Tertiary hospital for Sabah, Labuan & Northern Sarawak, or it may be the name for KK General hospital.

There have been saying that Kota Kinabalu should have a new General Hospital in Kinarut (or elsewhere in KK area), and another General Hospital in the nearby Penampang district to supplementing KK needs.

Good suggestion that there should be an alternative route to SMC.

I think it's good if SMC remains a specialist centre, ie convert it into a Cardio Centre in the future.

As a long term measure, I think they should also consider the Bukit Padang as the General Hospital, as the QE Hospital is really congested.

Yes, indeed there are a lot of possibilities and options for Ministry of Health, main concern is if they could do them all with full thrust, and coordination.
