What is the level of medicine in the country?
Medical care in Malaysia is developing by leaps. Hospitals’ services are monitored by the Ministry of Health that improves the quality of health care in the country and promotes it nationally and internationally.
About 400 medical facilities accept local and intercontinental patients in the country. Private hospitals are accredited according to the Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia. 88% of Malaysian medical centers have ISO accreditation and 16 private hospitals out of 200 are JCI-accredited (compare, Germany has only 1 JCI-accredited facility).
Malaysia is a well-known medical tourism country due to excellent healthcare facilities and highly-skilled doctors. 90% of Malaysian specialists were trained in the UK, USA, and Australia.
Why is Malaysia trendy for medical tourism?
Malaysia has been recognized as a health and medical tourism destination of the year three times in a row by IMTJ (International Medical Travel Journal) and considered as a top country for international patients.
Over 1 mln medical tourists visit Malaysia every year. Most of them are from Indonesia, however, the country is also popular with patients from India, Japan, Australia, Europe, the USA, and the Middle Eastern countries.
Low-cost and excellent quality services are the main factors that attract millions of seekers. The health care here is up to 80% cheaper than in the USA without quality loss.
What hotel services are provided here?
In Malaysia, there are hotels of different price ranges and service levels. Most tourists choose 4 and 5-star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.
