Established in 1985 in the heart of the Subang Jaya district in Selangor, the Subang Jaya Medical Center (SJMC) is the area’s largest provider of health care. This tertiary-care hospital, with 393 beds and 14 operating theaters, has a staff of 170 physicians and surgeons and 650 nurses, all of whom speak English as well as other languages including Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, and Spanish.

Offering all major specialties, the hospital management and staff pride themselves on the use of revolutionary medical technologies and their international reputation for clinical excellence. As a result, SJMC is among the top referred hospitals of choice in Malaysia for blood and marrow transplants, cancer treatment, computed-assisted joint replacement, comprehensive epilepsy management, and minimally invasive surgeries.

SJMC averages 1,500 outpatients and 100 inpatients each day, with more than 5,000 international patients treated each year (3,600 from Japan, 1,200 from European nations, and 300 from US, Canada, and Australia).

SJMC (originally known as the Subang Jaya Medical Center) leads the country in development of expertise for some of the most advanced medical procedures. In 1985, the hospital was the site of Malaysia’s first open-heart surgery. In 1995, it performed its first liver transplants on pediatric patients, its first stem cell transplant in 1999, its first adult bone marrow transplant in 2000, its first pediatric bone marrow transplant in 2002, and its first awake craniotomy in 2009.

SJMC's Nuclear Medicine and PET/CT Center is a major regional referral center for diagnosing and treating illnesses in the fields of cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, and oncology. SDSJ’s Vascular and Interventional Radiology Center combines a specialized branch of radiology with new catheterization and imaging technologies to enable precise diagnosis and minimally invasive treatment of blood vessel disorders and diseases of the internal organs. Accident, emergency, and outpatient services operate 24/7 and are staffed by a medical officer and teams of experienced nurses.

Surrounded by a lake and lush greenery, the hospital is accessible from all major highways in the Klang Valley and is located within a short driving distance from the city center of Kuala Lumpur as well as the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

A 2013 merger with Australia's Ramsay Health Care expands the hospital network into Indonesia, with plans for additional facilities in Vietnam, China and Myanmar. Subang Jaya Medical Center remains the flagship hospital within the network.

The Ramsay Sime Darby Medical Coordination Unit (MCU) serves as the first contact for international patients seeking care at SJMC. The unit has supported international patients from more than 60 countries.

The help has been wonderful, and when you are a nervous person like I am, and you get such attention with many of your cares taken on by other people, that’s definitely more important than anything. You can be sure when I go home, the standard of care and attention I had in this hospital will be a topic of conversation over many a glass of red wine. —Ian H., Australia
