Future Developments in Negeri Sembilan

The Bandar Springhill development involves the setting up of Malaysia's first, state-of-the-art private teaching hospital with an initial 400 beds that would upon completion, accommodate 1,000 beds. Included in the first phase construction are a new building for the University's Faculty of Medical Sciences, student accommodations, an international school and a 5-star resort and convention centre. This entire development was recently listed by the government as Entry Point Project 14, which is purposed to establish a Premium Health Education Cluster under the Economic Transformation Programme's Education National Key Economic Area.
