Medical Emergencies Procedure – Tourism Clinic at Bintan Resorts:

The doctor of the Tourism Clinic decides whether emergency evacuation is required to either a Bintan, Batam or Singapore hospital. The patient will be treated and stabilised prior to any evacuation.

Evacuation to a Bintan Hospital: An ambulance from the Tourism Clinic evacuates the patient to either BusungDistrictHospital or the GeneralHospital in Tanjung Pinang as decided by the medical officer.

Evacuation to a Batam Hospital: If the doctor feels that the patient should be evacuated to Rumah Sakit Awal Bros or any other hospital in Batam, then arrangements will be made for a speedboat. The speedboat sails from the Bintan Resorts Ferry Terminal to Pelabuhan Telaga Punggur in Batam.

Evacuation to a Singapore Hospital: Depending on the injury, patients may be evacuated to Singapore via the next available BRF ferry or by speedboat if immediate evacuation is required or if it is outside the ferry operating hours. The speedboat sails from the Bintan Resorts Ferry Terminal to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (or Harbourfront Ferry Terminal if the evacuation takes place between 10pm and 8am). An ambulance will be waiting to take the patient to the nearest hospital.
