JOHOR’S PREMIER HOSPITAL REBRANDS
Yang Berbahagia Datuk Ismail Ibrahim, the Chief Executive of Iskandar Regional Development Authority unveils Regency Specialist Hospital’s new look.
JOHOR, 27 JUNE 2018 – Regency Specialist Hospital (Regency) celebrated a key milestone today by unveiling its new look. From a humble start, today evolving into a progressive tertiary healthcare provider within its short history of nine years.
With a refreshed look, Regency’s and it’s sister hospital, Mahkota Medical Centre’s logos are identical. The two brands come together as one group, signifying a stronger network with a shared vision to serve patients in Malaysia and in the region.
Chin Wei Jia, Managing Director of Regency said, “With our new look, our new vision for Regency Specialist Hospital is to be the most comprehensive care hospital not only in Johor, but also in South East Asia.
Chin added that Regency receives more than 150,000 patients with approximately 22 per cent growth annually.
“We continue to build on our Centre of Excellences such as Emergency & Trauma Centre, Heart & Lung Centre and Woman & Children Centre.”
Regency prides itself as the only private hospital in Malaysia with Emergency Specialists on duty round the clock. The hospital is also the only private hospital in the southern region of Malaysia equipped with an adult “Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation” (ECMO) therapy. ECMO is an evolution of a heart lung therapy being used during surgery to provide prolonged cardiac and respiratory support for heart and lung treatments.
The hospital is also the first in Johor Bahru approved by Ministry of Health, Singapore for the use of Medisave overseas for permitted hospitalisation and day surgeries.
To date, Regency has built a team of 70 specialists, supported by nurses and allied healthcare staff. The hospital has a full team of neurology surgeons to look into brain and spine disorders. Equipped with modern medical facilities, Regency continues to focus in providing high quality patient care not only to its patients but also to the community.
The hospital’s mission is encapsulated by their renewed motto – “Hands that treat, hearts that heal”.
Speaking at the event, Yang Berbahagia Datuk Ismail Ibrahim, Chief Executive of Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) said, “As of 31 March 2018, the healthcare sector has contributed RM 4.11 billion from a total of RM 262 billion committed investments in Iskandar Malaysia.
As guided by the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) of Iskandar Malaysia, healthcare service is recognised as one of the promoted sectors that will support to accelerate this strategically located economic region to deliver a holistic living environment to its community whilst positioning itself in becoming the ASEAN regional hub for medical tourism industry.
Having esteemed healthcare providers such as Regency Specialist Hospital, it has paved the way in attracting more patients from ASEAN countries such as Singapore and Indonesia, continuously contributing to the growth of medical tourism industry in Iskandar Malaysia,” said Datuk Ismail.
Datuk Ismail added that this sector also continues to create job opportunities for local talents and businesses as well as providing the locals with a comprehensive exposure of the latest healthcare research and advanced technology.
To meet the growing demands from its patients, Regency has planned for a new extension block which will double its bed capacity to a 500-bed hospital.
To establish what is in store for Regency, it’s patients and the people, Chin concluded, “With a refreshed logo and renewed commitment, Regency Specialist Hospital will continue in its mission to move forward into the future, combining advanced healthcare services with the heartfelt human touch.
Our commitment to the society moving forward is to host more community based health talks and pledge to improve everyone’s health and not just that of our patients.
Together, let us keep these inner fires burning as we seek to deliver better quality, better care, and ultimately better lives for our patients and our community.”
