World-class Quality Healthcare

Malaysia’s private healthcare institutions are all accredited by bodies under the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua), such as Malaysian Society for Quality in Health (MSQH), Joint Commission International (JCI), the Australian Council in Healthcare Standards (ACHS), the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) and more.

Our medical experts are mostly trained from renowned medical institutions in the US, UK, Australia, Malaysia as well as other parts of Europe. Having been trained overseas and then at home for long periods of time, our medical community have developed diverse skills and knowledge in their fields of expertise with a keen understanding of a variety of cultures.

It is this personal touch to bedside manners and understanding patients from a cultural point-of-view which makes Malaysia such an attractive healthcare destination - we care and more importantly, we understand.

Prioritising Patient Safety

Malaysia’s private healthcare is strictly monitored by the Ministry of Health Malaysia guided by the Private Healthcare and Facilities Service Act (1998). With this in hand, you can rest assured that Malaysia’s private healthcare is well regulated, protecting your rights and exemplifying patient safety for your benefit.

Since the pandemic, Malaysia has constantly adapted our policies and management strategies according to the situation of the pandemic, earning us commendations from World Health Organization.

As we embrace endemicity, safety still remains our priority. Masking up and maintaining a good physical distance from one another still applies in ensuring the safety of the greater community, and we encourage everyone to do the same.

Home of Warm Hospitality

Malaysia has a long-standing reputation as a renowned travel destination with warm hospitality being one of our many points of attraction. This is deeply rooted in the Malaysian way of living, where being welcoming and courteous is an integral part of our unity as a multicultural society. Malaysians speak English, and myriad of other languages such as Malay, Mandarin and other Chinese dialects, Indian languages and many more. Should you need a translator, this can be arranged for.

In Malaysia, you will be spoilt for choices - from the variety of cuisines available, the natural landscapes and shopping escapades to indulge in, you can always find a way to feel at home.

Competitive Affordability

Treatment costs in Malaysia are regulated under the Medical Fees Schedule 13 imposed by the Ministry of Health. As a testament to that, Patient Beyond Borders recorded in 2019 that healthcare travellers can save between 60% to 80% in treatments costs in Malaysia as compared to the US. For example, a Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) would cost roughly USD 20,800.00 in Malaysia as opposed to USD 92,000.00 in the US.
