This brand new nine-storey women and children hospital is scheduled to begin construction in the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (Ripas) Hospital complex soon by the middle of this year to cater to the increasing needs and demands of the Sultanate. "The new hospital will also have two basements for parking which will help with the congestion as it will help ease traffic circulation," said M Jamarludeen Hj M Hussein, a representative from Arkitek Idris.
The new hospital, which is scheduled for completion 30 months after tender, will house a clinic on its ground floor, delivery and neonatal wards on the first and second floor respectively while the third floor will be used as administrative offices for CEO.
The remaining floors will cater to women and children wards which include services such as Obstetrics, Paediatrics and Gynaecology.
To address the shortages of parking spaces and the increase in traffic flow during the construction periods, MoH has introduced the RIPAS Hospital Link Shuttle Bus. For those visiting or seeking treatment from the hospital,can now park their car at the parking lot close to the Jame' 'Asr Hassanal Bolkiah mosque, and from there take the bus up to Outpatient lobby. Four buses from Ripas and two additional buses from JKR have been allocated and can hold a capacity of up to 29 people and will stop by the designated checkpoints every 10 to 15 minutes.
