REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo) II (Persero) supports the merger or holding of state-owned enterprises (BUMN) hospitals. EVP Pelindo II Company Secretariat Ari Santoso said this could increase the role of BUMN in the field of national health security.
"With the formation of the holding, we hope to create a standardized service in all state-owned hospitals," said Ari in his written statement, Thursday (13/8).
Ari confirmed that currently, Pelindo II has signed the deed of sale and purchase of Port Hospital (RSP) shares. Furthermore, he said, RSP would merge under the management of Pertamedika Indonesia Health Care (IHC), which is the holding company for BUMN hospitals.
He said the process of merging state-owned hospitals has been initiated since 2018. "Before joining the holding, RSP was managed by PT RS Pelabuhan, which is a subsidiary of Pelindo II," explained Ari.
Ari said the Pelabuhan Hospital has four branch hospitals, namely the Jakarta Hospital, Cirebon Hospital, Palembang Hospital, and Port Medical Center Hospital. Also, there are 12 clinics spread across almost all IPC port branches.
"We are proud that the RSP that we have managed will be part of a state-owned hospital holding which has the second-largest hospital network in Indonesia," said Ari.
Previously, BUMN Minister Erick Thohir said that all state-owned hospitals could be managed professionally and transparently. Besides that, it must also be led by people who have expertise in the health sector.
Erick hopes that Pertamedika IHC can work together to build a good health ecosystem with private and regional hospitals. Pertamedika IHC as the holding company will also manage assets of around Rp. 5 trillion.
"In facing a series of corporate action processes, Pertamedika IHC is accompanied by PT Danareksa Sekuritas and other supporting consultants," said Erick, Friday (7/8).
Erick said that Pertamedika IHC as the holding company for state-owned hospitals will be in the second rank of hospital groups with the largest network in Indonesia and more than 4,500 beds.
Erick said the BUMN hospital holding that had entered phase two had increased the number of hospitals to be managed in the IHC group. Previously, the IHC group managed 14 hospitals to become a total of 35 hospitals and will continue to grow after the implementation of the BUMN Hospital holding roadmap.
