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.
Chief executive officer Stuart D. Rowley, said the accreditation would serve as a competitive edge against other private hospitals in Malaysia to further penetrate the health industry market beside having cutting-edge technology for treatment.
"In order for medical tourism to be successful, insurance companies and large corporate organisations are looking for international accreditation.
"That's why it is imperative that we obtain the accreditation as quickly as possible.
"Besides, we also have many departments that have leading-edge technologies and these will really help put Malaysia on the map," he told Bernama.
