BOGOR - Deputy Governor of West Java, Uu Ruzhanul Ulum, accompanied the Working Visit of the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia, Jusuf Kalla, on the Opening Ceremony of Building A (Afiat Center and Kalla Ballroom) Hospital of the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI), located on Padjajaran Street No. 80 City of Bogor, on Monday (04/29/19).
In his direction, Vice President Jusuf Kalla encouraged better hospital services. According to Kalla, service is an important element besides technology.
"Because even though doctors are great, technology is advanced, but if the nurses are not smiling, that care will not be visited," said Vice President JK.
Jusuf Kalla, who is also the chairperson of PMI, gave an example of health services in Singapore which are full of interested people. According to him, medical treatment in Singapore does not mean a guarantee to recover. However, many people seek treatment there because they expect better service.
"It doesn't mean that Singapore (there is a guarantee) is cured. We think that hospitality is better, the doctors are more updated, the equipment is better," he said.
especially in Bogor City, which is densely populated, of course requires good health services and facilities, which can accommodate the needs of the community for excellent health services.
"Greater Bogor needs good service, he said.
The Deputy Governor of West Java, Uu Ruzhanul Ulum, said that PMI as a leading organization in the field of social humanity provided benefits that would certainly be felt by the community. Especially with the presence of the PMI Hospital and the New Building which is currently inaugurated.
"On behalf of the people of West Java, we thank PMI for presenting hospitals in the West Java region, as a solution to improve community health status," Uu said.
Public health, according to him, is a major aspect of development. This means that West Java can reach all its development goals if its public health index is good. So that a healthy society will be more productive in promoting development.
In line with that, continued Uu, the Regional Government of West Java Province, continued to strive to build health service facilities in various regions. So the presence of PMI hospitals in Bogor, became one of the supporters in the provision of health services, due to the limited reach of the Government in providing comprehensive services.
