Congratulations to Hospital Fatimah for 50 years of providing dedicated service to the community of Ipoh and Perak. I have been a resident orthopaedic surgeon in Hospital Fatimah for more than 40 years and have seen the hospital transformed into a major health care provider with modern facilities and a caring and dedicated staff. We are a family and I have enjoyed working with all the dedicated healthcare professionals. May the next 50 years be filled with continued success on your onward journey to provide the best to your patients. Happy 50th anniversary Hospital Fatimah.
