ISLAND HOSPITAL WINS HOSPITAL OF THE YEAR AND DIAGNOSTIC PROVIDER OF THE YEAR IN THE 3RD HEALTHCARE ASIA AWARDS

On the 23rd of April 2020, Island Hospital was announced as the winner of the Healthcare Asia Award for Diagnostic Provider of the Year and Hospital of the Year in Malaysia. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances of the nation and being at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic; the awards were given out virtually.

The Healthcare Asia Awards recognises healthcare providers that have made a positive impact for both their patients and the healthcare industry.

Joining the ranks of Asia’s most esteemed hospitals, Island Hospital was conferred the Hospital of the Year in Malaysia and Diagnostic Provider of the Year awards; recognised as a premier healthcare provider in both Penang and the northern region of Malaysia.

To hold the accolade during the current decade requires the hospital to remain relevant through innovation while still retaining the main goal of providing the best care and service to its patients.

In order to provide the best service at all times, Island Hospital continues to innovate by means of acquiring the best talent and technology available. One such example is becoming the first hospital in the entire northern region of Malaysia with a fully equipped and licensed kidney transplant centre. It is also one of two hospitals in the entire nation to own the SIEMENS SOMATOM Drive Dual Source CT Scanner, a powerhouse scanner that significantly reduces radiation and scanning time while still producing crystal clear images.

The acquisition of the SOMATOM Drive is also instrumental in the hospital’s recognition as Diagnostic Provider of the Year. With continuous development of its imaging, laboratory and pathology services, Island Hospital establishes itself as a provider of only the best diagnostic services the region has to offer to all patients from Malaysia and beyond.
