Normah Medical Specialist Centre (NMSC) was officially opened in August 1988. It is the first and is currently the largest purpose built private medical centre in the State of Sarawak. Owned by Sarawak Medical Centre Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Sarawak State Financial Secretary (SFS) Incorporation, it operates as a not for-profit organization. It is 16 km from Kuching International Airport and 7 km from Kuching City downtown. This first local private hospital has come a long way — from being a 130-bed medical and surgical non-profit centre to a world-class healthcare provider today.
