HRPZ II Kota Bharu, Kelantan (3)

Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II (HRPZ II)

HRPZ II underwent a big building project to build its multistorey day ward complex. It took about 2 years to build (2011-2013). The new complex replaced the old TB ward which used to be flooded waist-deep from before the 1960s to the early 1980s.
