“Non-COVID-19 patients from Tawau Hospital will be treated at this field hospital especially for obstetric and gynecological services, pediatrics, orthopedics and general surgery. This will give more space to Tawau Hospital to treat cases that require intensive care (categories 3-5) including those referred from nearby districts, especially Semporna.”

To further meditate the erection of the field hospital, ATM has shipped about 14 tonnes of medical equipment and the team, which is now in Tawau, immediately went into work to build the hospital which is due to operate next week.
