Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) was proclaimed “Medical Travel Organisation of the Year” at the 2017 Asia Pacific Healthcare & Medical Tourism Awards, on 19th May.
Fresh off the agency’s recent win as “Medical Tourism Cluster of the Year Award” at the International Medical Travel Journal Awards 2017 (IMTJ). Malaysia was also named “Medical Travel Destination of the Year” for the third consecutive year at the same IMTJ Awards.
For this award, the judges looked for organisations that have maintained consistently high standards in delivering quality care and pushed the boundaries of providing for their customers at every stage and in every interaction. These organisations are then further evaluated through in-depth interviews to understand their current market position, future growth plans, achievements and company performance, after which they are ranked accordingly.
The judging process is based on a four-tiered stage: Global Health and Travel’s (GHT) healthcare knowledge, AB Bernstein’s market research, evaluation by a panel of industry experts, and consumer survey. This methodology serves as an effective tool to benchmark the award nominees against industry standards and peers.

- 2017 Malaysia Hospital of the Year – KPJ Healthcare Berhad
