Gleneagles Medini Hospital Johor launched its state-of-the-art Cancer Centre to provide comprehensive cancer treatment services to cancer patients across the region. The Cancer Centre offers end-to-end cancer treatment services and support including radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy and biological targeted therapy, delivered by a highly experienced and skilled multi-disciplinary team of medical specialist consultants, nurses, counsellors and other paramedical professionals.
Gleneagles Medini Hospital Johor is equipped with the latest Elekta Synergy Radiotherapy with C-RAD system which offers 3-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DRT), Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Volumetric Arc Therapy (VMAT) or Rapid Arc. The cutting-edge technology enables more precise, accurate and quicker treatment using a lower dose of radiation so that patients can quickly resume their normal routine while enhancing overall quality of life.
The RM25 million Cancer Centre is a welcome boost to the RM400 million already invested in the hospital since it began operations in 2015. It will further strengthen the hospital’s mission to be the leading private hospital in Southern Region.
Cancer was the fourth leading cause of death in Malaysia and accounted for 27 per cent of all deaths in private hospitals, as reported by the Malaysian Ministry of Health in its 2018 MySCan report. With the launch of this new Cancer Centre, Gleneagles Medini Hospital Johor is able to improve the quality of care for cancer patients by combining the best techniques and latest technologies with an experienced medical team.
“Since we started operations in late 2015, Gleneagles Medini Hospital Johor has strived to become the leading healthcare provider in the Southern Region, providing best-in-class patient experience and clinical outcomes for our patients. We are committed to raise the bar on healthcare delivery, to meet the high standards expected of our prestigious Gleneagles brand” said Chief Executive Officer of Gleneagles Medini Hospital Johor, Jean-Francois Naa.
According to the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council, healthcare services in Malaysia rank high with global healthcare tourists as it is among the most affordable in the world that offers unparalleled standards of quality and care. In 2018 alone, there were 1.2 million health travelers from around the globe seeking healthcare treatments in Malaysia, with oncology being one of the popular treatments.
