The University Hospital, A Brief Introduction
Although the main hospital building was completed by December, 1966, commissioning of the Hospital and opening of the wards proceeded slowly mainly because of a shortage of nursing staff. The first patients were admitted in March 1967 and before the end of the year several wards had been opened together with the Polyclinic and Accident and Emergency Unit thus making available to the residents of Petaling Jaya and the adjoining area of Petaling Jaya and the adjoining area of Kuala Lumpur a hospital service on a 24-hour basis. By the end of 1969, all 758 beds were available for use. A new ward block of 112 bed was constructed in 1974 and commissioned providing for a total of 870 beds for the University Hospital.
Currently known as University of Malaya Medical Centre, it has 1,643 beds which is distributed by 44 wards throughout the medical centre serving a population of 1,782,375 for the district of Petaling.
