Columbia Asia today had a grand reopening and renaming for its hospital in Medan, Indonesia.
The 220-bed hospital is now called Rumah Sakit Columbia Asia - Medan.
The company bought the former Gleni International Hospital in 2008 and started a complete reorganization and reconstruction of the facility, which is still underway. The cost of the acquiring and refurbishing the hospital was more than US $35 million.
"We are committed to the delivery of high-quality healthcare in Medan," said Rick Evans, chairman of Columbia Asia. "Over the next few years, Columbia Asia will modernize all elements of this hospital, from the laboratory to the radiology areas, from surgical areas to the training of doctors and employees."
Columbia Asia has 19 facilities across India, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. Rumah Sakit Columbia Asia - Medan is the company's first hospital in Indonesia and only the second facility that the company did not build from the ground up.
