KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (PRWEB) March 19, 2018
Public hospitals in Malaysia have faced an uphill task in upgrading health care services to levels compatible with international standards. Hong Poh Fan, a senior adviser on facility management for a hospital developer, explores the transition that public hospitals have undertaken with the support of the private sector in his book, “Privatization of Facility Management of Public Hospitals: A Malaysian Perspective.”
The author focuses on critical issues, including successes and challenges of privatization implementation, hospital experiences in a Southeast Asian context and how those experiences can be applied elsewhere, and ways that private development of hospitals has changed over time as well as the rationale of privatization.
“This book is very relevant today, as it provides the experience, knowledge, and relevant data and information for planners and implementers of healthcare facilities like hospitals and large clinics,” said Fan. “Specifically, the book provides insight on the execution and implementation of hospital support service and hospital facilities management in Malaysia, but can be relevant to any countries in the world, developed or undeveloped.”
Join the author as he shares lessons learned over a 15-year period of hospital privatization in this detailed examination of how to improve health care.
