Learn more about Malaysia Medical Tourism

Malaysia is well known for its beautiful landscapes, delicious food, and hospitable people. In recent years though, it has also started to garner more positive attention for its world-class medical tourism offerings. Since Kuala Lumpur became an international flight hub, and as Malaysia is one of the world’s top Muslim-friendly travel destinations, it is only natural that the public and private Health Sector decided to attract tourists specifically for health treatments.

To that objective, the quality of the facilities and staff has continuously improved over the years, to the point that now the country’s health industry consistently wins top rewards for the quality and value of its health services. From 2015 to 2017, Malaysia won the international award for Medical Travel Destination of the Year. In parallel, Sunway Medical Centre, one of the country’s most prestigious medical centers, was named International Hospital of the Year from 2016 through 2017.

When it comes to fertility treatments, once again Malaysia is at the forefront of technology and quality of treatment, with TMC Fertility and Women’s Specialty Centre being awarded in 2016 – 2017 with International Fertility Clinic of the Year. Lastly, Malaysia is no stranger to tourists looking for affordable, quality options for cosmetic surgery. In the 2015 to 2016 period, Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre won the award for the International Cosmetic Surgery Clinic of the Year.

Not all medical tourists come to Malaysia just to be treated and then leave. When considering retirement, many people from North America and Europe decide that they want to relocate to a warmer country. One of the important aspects to consider in the retiree’s potential new home country is the quality of the health services for elderly people. Malaysia has already thought of this, and in the 2015 to 2017 period, the country was selected as the Best Country in the World for Retirement Healthcare.

About 5 million medical tourists from around the world have already been provided with Malaysia’s award-winning healthcare. With extraordinary healthcare practitioners, there are virtually limitless possibilities and exceptional quality catered to your needs. Malaysia is home to more than 70 private healthcare service providers dedicated to ensuring medical tourists receive the very best experience.

Additionally, to being highly acclaimed, the healthcare services in Malaysia are also much more affordable than in competing medical tourism destinations. Not only that but with a very well-staffed industry, waiting times to see world-leading specialists in their fields are negligible.

Compared to getting treatment from the private healthcare industry in North America, Europe, or Australia, the savings that medical tourists in Malaysia’s healthcare system encounter range between 40 and 80% depending on the procedure.

One of the reasons that the savings are so pronounced is that the Malaysian Ministry of Health regulates how much the private sector is allowed to charge for certain procedures, ensuring the patient receives quality treatment at a fair price while still allowing the healthcare institution to turn a profit.

The awards that the Malaysian healthcare industry has achieved did not come overnight. To ensure that the highest standards are met, many private healthcare institutions in Malaysia have become accredited by international organizations that routinely check to make sure that the quality of the infrastructure and services offered to meet the organization’s requirements to keep the accreditation.

Some of these international accreditation agencies include the Joint Commission International (JCI), the Malaysian Society for Quality in Health (MSQH), the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS), and the Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee (RTAC) of Australia.

Malaysia’s universities have developed many great doctors, but to ensure knowledge on the latest procedures and technologies, many Malaysian doctors at the finest medical institutions have completed all, or a large portion, of their training at some of the world’s most reputable universities and institutes specializing in Medicine and Healthcare.

As Malaysia is a very multicultural country, and since its best medical practitioners have completed studies in Europe, North America, Australia, and elsewhere, the service that medical tourists receive in Malaysia is both culturally sensitive and multi-lingual.

Some of the languages that Malaysian healthcare service professionals are fluent in, other than English, are Mandarin, Bahasa Indonesia, Hindi, and Tamil. Translation services are also readily available for other languages.

For medical tourists, complete trip packages to Malaysia can also be tailored to suit each patients’ individual needs. This can include accommodation for family members, assistance with visa applications for medical purposes, and a whole range of logistical project management.

Finally, the Malaysia Healthcare Concierge and Lounge is a pre-booked service which can be found both at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the Penang International Airport, greets medical visitors as soon as they set foot in either of Malaysia’s two largest cities. The government approved representative will escort medical tourists through expedited passport and customs control.
