In 1988, Bagan Specialist Centre, a 149-bedded hospital was built in the midst of a thick, green forest and mangrove along the Prai River. The vision then was to be the hospital of choice for the people of Butterworth and its surrounding region.

A hospital of choice that understands the healthcare needs of the local people; a healthcare provider that everyone can afford to turn to for quality and safe treatment in a comfortable, homey environment; a place where lives are celebrated with hopes and aspirations.
