Prince Court Medical Centre, which has received an international accreditation, expects to ride on medical tourism for growth following interests from overseas patients in quality healthcare services in Malaysia.

The Joint Commission International (JCI) is an authority on healthcare responsible for accrediting organisations which illustrate and practise high standards of medical care.

Through its collaboration with the Medical University of Vienna, the hospital also aims to be at the forefront of establishing innovative telemedicine, telepathology, teleradiology and telecytogenetics services in Malaysia.

The hospital, wholly-owned by Petronas, Malaysia’s national petroleum company, currently has 300 beds, of which 77 beds have been opened, 10 operating theatres and 63 medical consulting suites.

Prince Court has also invested in the Total Hospital Information System software that helps in managing patient information from admission to discharge making it a seamless operation.

Wow… amazing! Something that we perhaps should ponder upon. Even if it is not meant for medical tourism but more on the comforts of patients in our local hospitals.

Absolutely M, to a certain extent, JPMC WAS like that years ago. I remember when my first two kids were born at JPMC, the suites were so opulent… these days, its just like any other private hospital. I suppose they have to keep down their costs somehow 🙁
