President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo):

Yes, I see that RSUD Tebo and RSUD Sultan Thaha have good layouts and are clean. Why are we here? Because we want to deliver, firstly, a CT scan, mammography [device], cath lab this year. Therefore, preparations here must be made, as these are large equipment that need electricity, space, and specialist doctors to manage them. That is why I came to ensure everything is in place. And, I see that everything is ready here.

Yes, this is sufficient, more than enough. It can cover all the services the locals desire, and it’s still good. This is, from the standpoint of its size, also more than 10 hectares. If more space is needed, we just add more rooms, develop it further. I think it’s very good, very good, very good.
