Benefits of Medical Tourism in Malaysia

Malaysia boasts state-of-the-art medical facilities, world-class healthcare professionals, and a reputation for delivering high-quality medical care at a fraction of the cost compared to nearby country. This combination attracts patients seeking treatments ranging from specialised medical procedures to general health screening.

Impact on Medical Tourism Growth

The burgeoning medical tourism sector in Malaysia highlights the nation’s strong position in the global healthcare market. According to Mohamed Ali Abu Bakar, the Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council, Malaysia has increasingly become a favoured destination for health tourists across the Asia Pacific region in recent years. Emphasising quality, affordability, and accessibility, Malaysia consistently attracts a diverse clientele seeking advanced medical treatments.

He reported a notable rise in health tourist arrivals in 2023, exceeding 1 million—an increase of over 15% from 2022, when arrivals totalled more than 850,000. The Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) aims to generate RM2.4bil in revenue from the health tourism sector this year, which is expected to contribute an economic spillover to other industries of about RM9.6bil.

The Vital Role of Accommodation in Medical Tourism

Importance for Patients and Their Families

For medical tourists, accommodation is more than just a place to stay—it’s a sanctuary where they can recuperate comfortably before and after medical procedures. It’s also a crucial factor for accompanying family members who provide support during the patient’s recovery period. Hence, factors such as proximity to medical facilities, affordability, and amenities tailored to medical needs are paramount in their decision-making process.

Novo Reserve by COBNB’s Partnership with Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur addresses this exact challenge by providing quality accommodation at the building that is walking distance from its hospital at Jalan Ampang. Novo Reserve by COBNB is also providing free shuttle services for all Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur’s patients & family members throughout the day to enhance their commuting experience.

As Malaysia strives to expand its medical tourism sector, Novo Reserve by COBNB’s partnership with Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur strengthens the country’s position as a preferred destination for healthcare solutions. As the industry continues to evolve, Novo Reserve by COBNB remains committed to delivering outstanding service and ensuring a positive experience for every medical tourist.
