RM365m extension for Putrajaya Hospital


KUALA LUMPUR: George Kent Malaysia Bhd has received a letter of award from the Works Department to design and construct a hospital extension complex, costing RM364.9 million, which will be connected to the Putrajaya Hospital.

The extended wing with a link bridge to the existing main building, will comprise 220 beds and a multi-storey car park.

In a filing to Bursa Malaysia today, George Kent said construction would take 36 months from Jan 16, 2017 to Jan 15, 2020.

“The contract will not have any significant effect on our earnings for the financial year ending Jan 31, 2017, but is expected to contribute positively to the future earnings of the group over the duration of the contract,” it added.
