Jabatan Pediatrik had its humble beginnings in two wards placed above the present car park in the main block of Hospital Kuala Lumpur. There was only one ward for all children under seven years of age, while the other ward had a few beds designated for the first and second class, and a section created for neonatal beds for out born nursery. A special care nursery for inborn was placed in the Maternity Hospital. By mid-seventies alongside with the commencement of various clinical departments in the medical faculty of the National University of Malaysia, the need for a better and larger area for Paediatrics was acutely felt.
Planning for Institut Pediatrik began in earnest and the foundation for the institute was laid down in 1982. Unfortunately, due to various reasons, this much wanted project was only completed in early 1991. Jabatan Pediatrik however had a temporary reprieve when it moved to Wisma Kayu in 1988. Though placed in an old building, the department had seven wards dedicated to patients. By then all children aged thirteen years and below were rightfully placed under the care of the pediatrician. By May 1991, Jabatan Pediatrik moved all its activities to the present Institute of Paediatrics. Today Jabatan Paediatrik has evolved into providing various subspecialty services, serving as tertiary referral centre for the country, while continuing to provide core services in General Paediatrics and the neonates. Beside services offered by Jabatan Pediatrik, the Institute of Pediatrics also serve as a tertiary referral centre for Paediatric Surgery, Orthopedics, Child Psychiatry and Pediatric Intensive Care.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is one of the largest departments in Hospital Kuala Lumpur. It is located within the Maternity Block of the Kuala Lumpur Hospital compound. It is the national referral centre for obstetrical and gynaecological services in the country.
As Kuala Lumpur Hospital is a tertiary level care institution, a number of our clinical activities are directed at providing consultative and teaching services for a number of Peripheral hospitals.
The Maternity Hospital Kuala Lumpur was officially launched on 18th January 1963 by the then Raja Permaisuri Agong. The project was first conceived in 1958 to ease the overcrowding of the Maternity Section of the General Hospital, and was completed in late 1962. It was build at the cost of RM 5 million. The Maternity Hospital plays an important role as the premier maternity hospital of the Ministry of Health in Malaysia. Its main purpose was not only to cater to the needs of the people of Kuala Lumpur, but also to provide facilities for seriously ill patients from the rural areas. It would also serve as a training centre for both midwives and nurses. For these purposes a well-equipped lecture theatre, a laboratory and museum, conference room and hospital accommodation were provided for trainees.
The hospital started off with 214 beds. Of these, 20 were first class beds, 64 second class beds and the remaining 156 were third class beds. A day after its official opening the first two babies were delivered. A total of 759,335 deliveries have been conducted in this hospital from 1963 to 2002, making this one of the largest and busiest maternity hospital in the world.
