I spend an incredible amount of time at The General Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) last week. The reason was because my wife had some complications over her pregnancy and we finally had to decide our first baby go. It was kind of hard to accept the recommendation by the doctor at first, however after thinking long and hard, it had to be done sooner or later.
Anyway, what I wanted to write about in this blog post is the parking at HKL. If you’ve never been to HKL before, unlike Selayang Hospital, HKL is an old hospital and the different department are located further apart instead of just in one building. The parking inside HKL is rather limited and you’ll even have to fight for a space with the HKL staff themselves and that was at their open parking which is opened to the public.

Here’s a tip for you. If you want to visit any relatives or friends and you want to get a nearer parking space, try and come after 4pm. That is of course if the visiting hours are permissible for the ward you’re visiting.
Alright, here’s the HKL parking rate as of March 2011:

Information from my brother in law who works in HKL, the parking operator is newly appointed. The previous operator’s contract expired and the HKL management discontinued their contract. Hopefully HKL can improve their facilities in order to accommodate their ever increasing patients numbers.
