Sunway Medical Centre is an ISO 9001:2008, MS ISO15189 and Malaysian Society for Quality in Health (MSQH) accredited private hospital. Located on Jalan Lagoon Selatan, Sunway Medical Centre is two minutes’ drive from the Sunway University College on one side, and the combined properties of Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, and Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall on the other.
From a single building to five, SunMed has grown exponentially since its inception in November 1999. With the expansion plan starting since 2006, the hospital has grown from its previous 22,219sq.m to span 60,803sq.m. Now, SunMed is poised to set a new standard of service for its growing clientele, making it one of the foremost private medical care centres in the nation with a total of 350 beds, more than 100 consultation suites, 12 operation theatres and a multi-storey car park with 750 parking bays.
A highlight of the new set-up includes a convention centre – aptly named the Swan Convention Centre. The multipurpose hall seats up to 500 pax and has audio-visual linkage with two of the new operating theatres to enable live telecast of surgical procedures. Video-conferencing facilities are also being installed.
Sunway Medical Centre offers a comprehensive range of medical services, which includes facilities and medical technologies for outpatient and in-patient specialty care, health & wellness programme, and 24-hour emergency services. Doctors either practice in Specialist Consultation Suites located within the hospital or have ‘admitting rights’ to use all inpatient facilities, including diagnostic services and operating theatres. Aside from the accident & emergency first response and primary care services which are manned by medical officers, all the doctors in the hospital are of Consultant Specialist level. Sunway Medical requires that practising Specialists must have internationally-recognised postgraduate qualifications as well as a stipulated number of years’ of experience in their chosen specialty/sub-specialty discipline.
In recognition of the increasingly sophisticated needs of the nation, Sunway Medical has begun to develop niche areas of medical service, beginning with the field of neurosciences. Sunway Medical was the first private hospital to perform the Deep Brain Stimulation the management of Parkinson’s Disease. The Cochlear Implant Programme, for the treatment of profound hearing loss, forms another milestone in Sunway Medical’s quest to provide integrated, multi-disciplinary care for our patients. Sunway Medical Centre implemented this programme in 2004.
