Sunway Medical Centre has won a major international medical tourism award for their efforts in attracting international patients to Malaysia.

Sunway Medical Centre was named International Hospital of the Year by medical travel publication, the International Medical Travel Journal Medical Travel Awards 2016 (http://awards.imtj.com) at their annual awards ceremony.

The awards were presented on 24th May at a high profile reception in Madrid during the International Medical Travel Journal Medical Travel Summit, which brought together all the pre-eminent providers and experts in medical travel and medical tourism sectors. The Awards were generously supported by the Tourism Association of Madrid and Spaincares.

The award was given to Sunway Medical Centre in recognition of its excellence in service and ability to attract and serve international patients (medical tourists) while providing in-patient and diagnostic facilities of the highest quality. Sunway Medical Centre outshined similar businesses from around the world to clinch the award.

“To be recognised for our on-going efforts by the IMTJ Travel Awards as International Hospital of the Year is gratifying, especially given the increasing numbers of medical tourists who make Sunway Medical Centre their care provider of choice. In 2015, Sunway Medical Centre grew its international patient numbers by 30%. Sunway Medical Centre is focused on ensuring the highest levels of patient care at our current and future facilities,” said Nadiah Wan, Business Development & Corporate Communications Director, Sunway Medical Centre.

Chairman of the judging panel and Managing Editor of IMTJ Keith Pollard says the awards celebrate the best providers in the industry and aim to encourage others to strive to match them:

“Medical travel is an exciting and growing global industry, with many providers delivering excellence in both medical care and customer service. The IMTJ Medical Travel Awards is the only independent awards to recognise those who are the best of the best – and hopefully will encourage others to emulate their success. The judges wanted to reward innovation and excellence, highlight best practice and celebrate those who are leading the way in the industry and delivering successful outcomes for patients.”

“All our winners exemplify the way the medical tourism industry should be run – professional, offering exceptional patient care and providing the best possible medical outcomes. I’m already looking forward to next year’s awards in the hope that other clinics and companies will have raised their game to match or even better this year’s winners.”
