KUALA LUMPUR, June 7 (Bernama) -- Sunway Medical Centre (SMC) has once again solidified its position as a leader in specialised healthcare in Malaysia. 

According to the latest rankings by Best Specialised Hospitals Asia Pacific Newsweek 2024, SMC retains its top spot for paediatrics in the country, marking a significant achievement in the field of child healthcare.

Sunway Healthcare Group president Datuk Lau Beng Long expressed his satisfaction in a statement, saying, “We are pleased that our Paediatrics Department is recognised regionally, as SMC operates the country’s first dedicated Children’s Emergency Department among private hospitals, which has received over 22,000 patient visits since 2023. 

“This one-stop centre that caters to the healthcare needs of infants, children, and adolescents is supported by 45 paediatricians in 24 paediatric subspecialties,” he said.

Meanwhile, SMC chief executive officer Dr Seow Vei Ken attributed the hospital's success to its dedicated team.

“The recognition underscores our continuous pursuit of excellence in healthcare. 

“This will be a catalyst to continually enhance our healthcare services and innovate specialised medical services to meet diverse patient needs,” he said.

SMC stands as the largest private quaternary hospital in Malaysia, boasting 724 licensed beds. It aims for expansion, planning to accommodate up to 1,100 beds upon the completion of its Tower F.
