KPJ Healthcare targets increased health tourism revenue

Malaysian healthcare group KPJ Healthcare aims to increase revenue from health tourism to RM90mil this year from RM78mil in 2014 and RM67.09mil in 2013.

To meet the target KPJ will continue to innovate and bring in new technology while expanding services to meet patients’ needs.

Mohd Sahir Rahmat of KPJ Healthcare says, “Many of our health tourism patients are from Indonesia, Libya and Somalia seeking our expertise in oncology, orthopaedics, neurology and heart treatment.”

As well as international patient resources within Malaysia, it has foreign agents in several key markets overseas that help patients select a KPJ hospital that best suits their treatment needs.

Under the Reinvigorating Healthcare Travel entry point project, six KPJ hospitals have been established as one-stop centres for healthcare travel.
