Malaysia has emerged as a strong competitor in the global health and medical tourism sector. Given the potential of medical tourism as a foreign exchange earner, the Malaysian government has taken a series of proactive measures to enhance Malaysia as a preferred health tourism destination.

These establishments are well–equipped and staffed to ensure the highest level of professionalism, safety and care to patients. Malaysia is a popular destination for medical tourists because of its low cost, efficient staff and medical facilities that are on par with western standards. Some hospitals even offer luxurious accommodations with personal butlers and full–time nurses.
