Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha Hospital Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei
Officially opened in 1984, Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha Hospital (RIPAS) is the largest national hospital and the main referral hospital in Brunei. The hospital has more than 600 beds and offers a wide range of services to the indigenous population. Healthcare in the public sector is free for Bruneians and foreign government workers. The hospital is equipped with modern, cutting-edge medical technology, but those patients who require specialised treatment not provided in Brunei are sent abroad.
It is also a major teaching hospital in the country for doctors, medical students and nursing students in collaboration with University Brunei Darussalam. As of 2007, the senior medical staff of RIPAS hospital are mostly trained from the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Australia and the hospital also trains medical students from the University of Queensland, Australia.
