Subang Jaya Medical Centre Applauded by Frost & Sullivan as the Best Hospital Company of the Year in Malaysia for the fourth consecutive year


SJMC's significant efforts in alleviating nursing shortages, enhancing workflows and its strong market-leading position, both locally and globally resulted in high patient retention and strong referrals.

SAN ANTONIO, May 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan recently analyzed the hospital industry and noted that operational inefficiencies, workflow interruptions and shortage of skilled healthcare professionals are some key challenges faced by the healthcare industry. Based on its findings, Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) is recognized with the 2024 Malaysian Best Hospital Company of the Year Award for the fourth consecutive year in the hospitals industry, making it the first to be recognized continuously with this prestigious accolades

The company is a private hospital with 443 licensed beds and over 150 outpatient clinics. It handles approximately 50,000 admissions and 550,000 outpatient visits annually. With a workforce of around 1,600 healthcare professionals, SJMC offers services across more than 260 medical specialties encompassing diverse therapeutic areas such as oncology, cardiology, orthopedics, digestive health as well as women and children health.

Bhaskar Vittal, industry principal at Frost & Sullivan, observed, "SJMC provides comprehensive and integrated care, implementing practices aimed at achieving the best possible outcomes for patients. A typical cancer patient journey at SJMC starts with awareness-building and screening programs, continuing with diagnosis, treatment, and aftercare, which includes support groups, educators, and counselors?all key elements in cancer care management.

SJMC is a finalist flagship medical tourism hospital selected by the Malaysian Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) which is fully endorsed by the Malaysian Ministry of Health. It has achieved several accreditations including the Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation and aims at providing patients a seamless transition throughout their health journey in Malaysia. Patient onboarding follows a process-oriented approach from the inquiry level, where patients receive detailed information on available services, specialist doctors, and treatment availability.

SJMC has achieved international branding and recognition for its Cancer & Radiosurgery Centre (CRC), known for its person-centered care approach. Moreover, the hospital has been credited by the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International (ACHSI) as the first Center of Excellence (CoE) for oncology services in Asia-Pacific, marking a milestone achievement. SJMC continuously improves patient treatment options, expands day care surgical offerings, and prioritizes safety, faster recovery, and lower costs in line with industry trends to achieve medical excellence.

The hospital's Genetic Wellness, a first-of-its-kind clinical-grade genetics testing program, provides more than 1,000 insights into patients' health conditions based on their unique genetic blueprint. The test provides individualized information on a wide range of conditions, including chronic, infectious, and metabolic diseases, allergies, and drug responses, allowing individuals to make informed choices for their overall wellbeing.

SJMC became the first hospital in Malaysia to introduce a remote patient monitoring system, SeniorConnect, that is tailored to the unique needs of senior patients and is particularly beneficial in urban settings, where it is common for working adults to face challenges in caring for their elderly relatives. It is also the first hospital in Malaysia to perform day care robotic-assisted total knee replacement and total hip replacement procedures using the Mako SmartRobotics system. It also focuses on preventive and precision healthcare?key trends in the global healthcare industry.

Its continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology allows diabetes patients to continuously monitor and control their blood glucose. SJMC also successfully conducted a clinical improvement project, titled "Reducing Early Morning In-Patient Hypoglycemia Incidence among In-Patient Adults with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in non-Critical Care Wards," which found that patients adhering to the recommended snack regimen experienced zero hypoglycemic incidents. SJMC aims to enhance diabetes wellness with its multidisciplinary approach through revolutionary technology and in-depth research.

SJMC's artificial intelligence (AI)-powered Radixact X9 with Synchrony synchronizes the movement of radiation beams with the tumor's motion, allowing seamless and continuous radiation delivery during the patient's natural breathing patterns. This technology enables delivering accurate radiation dosage while minimizing exposure to healthy tissues.

"SJMC's digital technologies and equipment enhance the patient journey, improve clinical outcomes, and provide the healthcare workforce with the best tools to achieve their medical excellence goals," added Vittal.

Bryan Lin, Chief Executive Officer of SJMC expressed his gratitude for receiving this prestigious recognition for the fourth time, saying, "We're honored to be recognized for the exceptional care our dedicated staff provides. Their unwavering commitment and teamwork are what truly make a difference for our patients. We'll continue to pursue excellence and deliver world-class healthcare."

We're committed to achieving these goals by empowering our staff through training which improves the quality of patient care and equipping them with tools that enhance decision-making while encouraging them to embrace and learn in this digital healthcare era," he adds.
