Singapore-Indonesia bilateral ties were further cemented when Foreign Minister George Yeo handed over the S$12 million Meulaboh General Hospital to the Indonesian health authorities in a ceremony in West Aceh Friday morning, Channel News Asia reports.

The Meulaboh General Hospital is a collaborative effort by the Singapore Red Cross (SRC), investment company Temasek, and the Singapore government.

As it is the main referral hospital serving a population of more than 200,000 in South and West Aceh, the community hospital remained operational throughout the construction.

Rebuilt and refurbished at its original site spanning two hectares, the 146-bed Meulaboh General Hospital will be staffed by 400 healthcare professionals.

The enhanced facilities and increased capacity will meet the growing needs of Acehnese for quality healthcare.

The handover of the Meulaboh General Hospital marks the closure of the Tidal Waves Asia Fund, which SRC and its Tsunami Reconstruction Facilitation Committee have managed since January 2005.

To date, close to 70 projects on healthcare, education, housing and community, and economic recovery and livelihood have been successfully implemented in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
