Private Healthcare in Malaysia

"The medical and dental services offered by healthcare facilities in Malaysia are on par with those in fully developed nations.

They cost considerably less than similar ones in neighbouring countries and are a mere fraction of the prices charged in the West.

Malaysian doctors and specialists are highly qualified, having received their training at overseas medical schools in countries such as Australia, the United Kingdom, United States and many others as well as in local universities.

All private healthcare facilities in Malaysia are required to be licensed under the Private Healthcare Facilities and Services Act 1998 and Private Healthcare Facilities and Services Regulations 2006.

Many of the private hospitals are accredited by either a National or International Accreditation Bodies, recognised by the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua). Examples are the Malaysian Society for Quality in Health (MSQH) Standards; Joint Commission International (JCI) Hospital Accreditation Standards; and other International Accreditation Body/Bodies.

Thus, patients are assured of optimum quality and safety".
