Malaysia medical tourism offers competitive medical and hospital charges for top quality medical care. Foreign patients consider Malaysia a wise choice due to the state-of-the-art private medical centers in the country. These establishments are well-equipped and staffed to serve the healthcare needs of people from all over the world. After a surgery or treatment or during the recuperating period, the patients become tourists, enjoying a spot of sightseeing, playing a round of golf or two, or going for spa treatments.
Healthcare in Malaysia
There are many advantages of choosing Malaysia for your private health and medical requirements.
Affordability is one of the key factors drawing patients to Malaysia due to the favorable exchange rate of the Ringgit (RM). Patients can undergo treatment, recuperate and enjoy a holiday in Malaysia for much less than what it would cost them for treatment alone in other countries. This results in healthcare costs in the country being one of the most competitive in the region. For example, a normal cardiac bypass surgery in Malaysia can cost between US$6,500 and US$9,000 which includes a two to three-day stay in the intensive care unit, up to seven days in the ward including consultation, cardiologist and anesthetic fees.
Medical Staffs and Specialists
Malaysia’s private hospitals provide patients with access to highly qualified staffs, both medical and administrative. These medical specialists are well trained with recognized post-graduate qualifications from UK, Australia and USA. Medical professionals possess not just experience in established medical practices, but also knowledge of cutting-edge developments. Most importantly, the medical staffs strive to provide a caring and friendly environment vital for a patient’s healing and well-being.
In Malaysia, all private medical centers are approved and licensed by the Ministry of Health. Internationally recognized accreditation such as the MS ISO 9002 and the Malaysia Standard Quality of Health (MSQH) certification based on the Australian Healthcare Standards are the reason foreigners and locals alike have placed their confidence in Malaysia’s hospitals. Such accreditation is a guarantee of the best in medical service and reliability.
Malaysian hospitals also possess an edge when it comes to the availability of services. Collectively the network of private hospitals here, offer comprehensive services in virtually all medical disciplines including internal medicine general surgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, cardio-thoracic surgery, orthopedic surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, ophthalmology, speech therapy, radiology, cardiology, dentistry, urology and nephrology among others.
