Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A hospital is probably the last place you would expect stunning architecture, 5-star service, and cutting-edge technology to co-exist harmoniously. But Prince Court Medical Centre is not your typical hospital. Prince Court Medical Centre is fully owned by PETRONAS, Malaysia’s national petroleum company, and in the pursuit of world-class medical treatment, no expense or patient consideration has been spared. It’s as if the hospital has been designed around a patient’s wish list… and let’s face it, most people don’t wish to go to hospital.

Prince Court Medical Centre, a 277 bed private medical facility conveniently located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, is internationally accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI) and provides a comprehensive range of family-centered healthcare services for local and international patients.

Indeed, Prince Court Medical Centre is fast becoming the hospital of choice for international patients.

An honour indeed, but hardly surprising for a hospital that prides itself on being committed to raising standards and developing a culture of excellence.

Much has been made of the hospital’s stunningly beautiful architecture, both exterior and interior, as well as its portfolio of cutting-edge technology and medical services, including robotic surgery and nuclear medicine, but what is equally impressive is how this hardware and software has been blended into something humanistically akin to “heartware,” a hybrid word that sums up the hospital’s approach to its patients, which focuses on always putting humanity first, regardless of theshiny technology or exquisitely designed environment.

From its team of qualified and committed specialists, highly trained nurses, and helpful non-medical staff, Prince Court Medical Centre exudes professionalism, dedication, warmth, and care, all of which permeate its comprehensive medical care, and all taking place under the highest international standards.

The staff understand that undergoing medical treatment can be stressful to both the patient and their loved ones, which is why you’ll see the difference from the moment you’re greeted by the Customer Relations Officers at the entrance, a well-designed main atrium that’s more akin to a hotel lobby.

With a great mix of retail outlets, complimentary personal toiletries, free Wi-Fi in the patient’s room, a wonderful room-service menu, and a Concierge who can arrange shopping and sightseeing visits in the city, these touches of luxury are deliberate, as they go a long way in helping along with the post-treatment healing process.
