Considering this, SJMC offers a comprehensive range of specialised services, ensuring patients have access to the highest level of expertise for their specific needs. Best known for its clinical outcomes, the multi-disciplinary tertiary hospital believes in a holistic and person-centred approach to their patients.

The hospital has made significant achievements as a trailblazer in many first medical milestones – conducting Malaysia’s first open-heart surgery, stem cell and paediatric liver transplants, adult and paediatric bone marrow transplants, and brain neurosurgery, just to name a few. In 2021, it continues to revolutionise medical boundaries by performing the country’s first total knee replacement daycare surgery.
