Medical tourism is an industry that is getting bigger with great prospect. As a tourism state, Melaka has its own plan to be part of the medical tourism industry. There’s the Melaka General Hospital which is a government funded public hospital. It is well known not only to Melaka people, but also to those from the northern part of Johor and southern part of Negeri Sembilan. However, it can’t accommodate many. As more and more people need health services, there are many hospitals being built in Melaka, regardless by the government or by the private sector. One of the well known hospital in Melaka is the Putra Specialist Hospital.
Putra Specialist Hospital Melaka was previously known as Southern Hospital. It started its operation in 1995. Melaka State Government owned the hospital while Mediquest Sdn Bhd and Apex Pharmacy Bhd are the minority shareholders.

Okay, I don’t think it will be wise to publish the rates as it will change in time. It’s best the you give them a call or make a visit to the hospital for an estimation cost. Or you can visit their website, please refer below for the link. As a private hospital (it is not a public hospital although being owned by the Melaka State Government), the fee is not cheap like other government funded hospital, but it is worth it for those who can afford it (or insured) and want better health services. Putra Specialist Hospital also has a branch in Batu Pahat, Johor.
