Meanwhile, Budi Gunadi Sadikin as Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia, expressed his appreciation to Jababeka for inaugurating Jababeka Medical City in order to help the presence of health services in the community more optimally. This is because the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia needs cross-sector cooperation, including the private sector, in providing optimal health services.
“One of these medical cities can be from the medical equipment, it can be from the medical education, it can also be the medical services. And medical education, I see that there are already state universities, I said to Mr. Darmono, ‘the need for doctors and specialists is very high’. I am very supportive that medical professional graduates from higher education in Jababeka can (later) flow to maintain good quality.
