With cutting-edge equipment and a comprehensive suite of specialisations, Prince Court’s patient-first approach sets the gold standard for medical tourism in Malaysia
In partnership with Prince Court Medical Centre
In 2019, the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) recorded an impressive 1.3 million medical tourists to Malaysia, who in turn generated RM1.7 billion in spending. That number is only set to grow – reaching RM2 billion by 2025. There are many reasons why Malaysia is the preferred choice for medical tourists. There is a strong regulatory framework that ensures quality care at cost-effective prices. Malaysia is also well connected and offers many domestic attractions to enjoy before or after treatment.
But perhaps the biggest reason is its medical institutions. Top among them is Prince Court Medical Centre, which sets the gold standard in healthcare in Malaysia and beyond.
Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Prince Court Medical Centre has elevated Malaysia’s healthcare sector for over 16 years. This multi-award-winning quaternary hospital offers patient-first care with over 160 consultants, 1,100 employees and best-in-class medical equipment and technology.
The gold standard in healthcare
Patients at Prince Court are assured of a world-class facility that has been regularly recognised by the healthcare industry. The internationally accredited centre has received some of the top honours in the region. It was recently lauded as Medical Tourism Hospital of the Year 2023 by Healthcare Asia Awards, as well as by Global Health Asia-Pacific in 2021 and 2022. Other accolades include recognition as IMTJ’s International Hospital of the Year, and landing on the World’s Best Hospitals list by MTQUA. Among consumer awards, Prince Court has also received the Pa and Ma People’s Choice Award for Best Children’s Hospital two years in a row.
Comprehensive suite of specialities
Prince Court addresses emergency and non-emergency needs across 35 specialities and sub-specialities, such as cardiology, gynaecology and paediatrics. The oncology department is a one-stop cancer centre with top-of-the-line medical advancements such as a PET-CT and the latest radiotherapy equipment, while its renal and urology services include the first and only bedded dialysis treatment in Malaysia
Those with orthopaedic injuries will find a range of surgical and non-surgical options for both children and adults at Prince Court, as well as a dedicated sports medicine unit. The hospital also offers a full burns unit with plastic and reconstructive surgery, and a 24/7 stroke management service via its neurology and neurosurgery centre.
A pioneer in Malaysia – and beyond
Prince Court invests in the latest equipment and pioneers cutting-edge procedures. It’s among the few facilities in Malaysia to offer private lung valve insertions, and HIPEC surgery for colorectal cancer. It also has the distinction of being the first private institution to have performed over 100 living-donor renal transplants. Recently, Prince Court acquired the state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi for robotic surgeries, and is the first and only hospital with a weight-bearing CT scan and an indoor, full-scale hydrotherapy pool.
Clinical excellence aside, what sets Prince Court apart is its patient-first approach. With a sprawling campus near the KLCC Twin Towers, Prince Court offers an unparalleled experience. All 277 beds are in private, single-room configurations, and a dedicated doctor liaison ensures that each patient receives personalised care across specialists. Patients and visitors can spend time in a premier lounge with amenities such as restaurants, retail, concierge and valet services, as well as multi-lingual translators.
Most of all, Prince Court’s patient-first approach rests on its promise of safe, effective, high-quality and value-for-money treatment.

What sets Prince Court Medical Centre apart from other facilities in Malaysia?
We are renowned for our clinical excellence, providing access to the best team of multidisciplinary experts. Moreover, we continue to invest in cutting-edge medical technology. For example, we are equipped with state-of-the-art robotic and radiotherapy technology such as the da Vinci Xi and Elekta Versa HD Linear Accelerator (LINAC). Also, we are the pioneering hospital in Malaysia to perform ABO-incompatible renal transplants, allowing for the transfer of kidneys between different blood groups. Such remarkable milestones reflect the top-notch expertise of our multidisciplinary, team-based care in saving and transforming lives.
What are a few noteworthy international cases you’ve treated at Prince Court?
We have had multiple success stories. Take for example a patient who was diagnosed with early-stage pancreatic cancer. The patient came to seek a second opinion from our experts, who recommended tumour removal surgery. The patient responded well and was up and about in a few days.
Our care has also improved the lives of female patients who have had healthy pregnancies despite having one kidney. We even had the oldest living kidney donor who donated her kidney to her daughter at the age of 79.
How is Prince Court giving back to the community?
To help bridge the cancer care divide, Prince Court is collaborating with a government hospital in Kuala Lumpur by extending free radiotherapy services, giving underserved patients access to cutting-edge technology while reducing waiting times and transforming lives. Since May, we’ve conducted over 820 radiotherapy sessions and are on track to treat 100 patients by year-end. This delivery of quality care and our patient-first, team-based approach towards equitable healthcare, complemented by the impact of our clinical excellence, is why Prince Court continues to be the preferred choice for patients from all over the world.
