Johor government wants to realise Iskandar Malaysia to become medical and healthcare hub in the region, taking advantage of its strategic location in South East Asia and high quality and services with cheaper medical and healthcare fees compare to its competitor Singapore.
Johor Menteri Besar Khaled Nordin said that there are about 14 private hospitals in Iskandar Malaysia. Most of the facilities in these private hospitals received many patients from nearby countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and regional countries.
KPJ Healthcare, a hospital chain under Johor Corporation has been assigned by Johor government to draw a master plan associate to transform Iskandar Malaysia into medical and healthcare hub in the region.
“With the right planning, we can turn Iskandar Malaysia into a healthcare hub as we are located next to Singapore. Besides of providing healthcare and medicines, services like sterilisation should also be looked into as the costs of such services tend to be higher there,” he said after launching the KPJ Healthcare Camp in Kampung Nelayan, Permas Jaya here yesterday.
“KPJ has four hospitals in Iskandar Malaysia and is indirectly linked to the state government. I am sure that with their expertise, they are able to come up with an effective plan for a sustainable hub for example in the next five years,” Menteri Besar Khaled Nordin said.
“We always talk about developing Iskandar Malaysia and the Johor state but it is not only restricted and focused on property development. There should be a balanced development in the services and healthcare sectors as well,” he added.
