Penang Maternity Hospital




The Penang Maternity Hospital (GPS: 5.4202, 100.30954), or Hospital Bersalin Pulau Pinang, is one of the units within the Penang Hospital complex. It occupies a plot of land off Residency Road, next to the St George's Girls' School. Also in the vicinity are two other schools, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Tunku Puan Habsah and Sekolah Kebangsaan Jalan Residensi.

The Maternity Hospital moved here in 1955 from its original building, which was known as the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, along Macalister Road. The building there today houses the Museum @ Macalister.

As you enter the driveway toward the Maternity Hospital, you will see on your left the Obstetrics and Gynaecology (OBG) clinic (Klinik Ibu Mengandung dan Sakit Puan).

Updates on the Penang Maternity Hospital

December 2014: The Penang Maternity Hospital was closed down for a major upgrading. The Women and Children's block will be demolished and rebuilt in a RM250million Economic Planning Unit project. After the upgrading, the hospital will have 329 beds (as compared to 210 beds before the upgrading). As a first ever, the hospital will have a school in it, so that children who get sick will still be able to continue their education with in-house teachers.
