The Sri Aman Hospital is a general hospital in the Sarawak district of Malaysia and is quite an old hospital as it was built in 1959. The hospital is one of a number in the region that was earmarked, in 2011, for development projects to enhance the services offered and a new hospital may be built by 2013 to accommodate this development. The currrent hospital was built during the James Brooke administration of Sarawak and has only two specialist staff (a general medicine specialist and an obstetrics and gynaecology specialist, provided in August 2011), with many medical emergencies being transferred to the Sarawak General Hospital to undergo care. The majority of the staff at the hospital are medical officers, but the two specialists are now attached from their base hospitals on permanent weekly rotations, so the hospital always has a resident specialist in these two fields.
In addition, the hospital provides a flying doctor service to the local rural population; it is sometimes possible for students to be involved with this service during their elective. Please enquire with the hospital directly.
The new hospital is being constructed under the 10th Malaysia Plan and when the new hospital is completed (expected between 2013 and 2015), the existing hospital will be transformed into a polyclinic.
