The world's Top 10 hospitals for medical tourists

A Malaysian hospital has been named the top hospital for medical tourists for the second year in a row.

After reviewing top hospitals around the world, Prince Court Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur was again selected as the hospital that best provides medical tourists with outstanding care beyond standard clinical protocols as well as excellent medical treatment.

The annual ranking by the Medical Travel Quality Alliance (MTQUA) reveals five of the top 10 hospitals are in Asia.

After reviewing top hospitals around the world, Prince Court Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur was again selected as the hospital that best provides medical tourists with outstanding care beyond standard clinical protocols as well as excellent medical treatment.

“Prince Court is already known as an outstanding medical facility,” says Julie Munro, MTQUA president. “This award recognises that it also pays the utmost attention to key non-clinical aspects of care that influence good outcomes and a successful medical travel journey for medical tourists.”nMTQUA believes medical tourists are not ordinary patients, and require care beyond standard clinical protocols. Communication, cultural expectations, social practices, ethics, and post-discharge care coordination are some of the factors that affect good care for travelling international patients.n“It’s almost impossible for medical tourists to know how to find a good hospital that will truly provide the treatment and care they are travelling to get. We hope consumers and doctors will pay more attention to non-clinical factors that can significantly impact clinical outcomes and not just ask about hotels and airport pickups,” says Munro.

Thailand, often thought to be the most popular medical destination, continues its drop in standing as a leading medical tourism destination, creating opportunities, MTQUA says, for Thailand’s key competitors, Malaysia and Turkey.
