This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The private hospital group, Hospital Pantai, has launched a new stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy service at its hospital in Kuala Lumpur, the first of its kind in Malaysia. The service, set up at a cost of RM2 million ($0.6 million), is expected to attract patients from other countries in the region where the treatment is not available, particularly Indonesia, reports Malaysia's Business Times. The Hospital Pantai group owns and manages five hospitals in Malaysia with a total of 1,100 beds. In a separate development, three hospitals in Malaysia's Ipoh state are to launch a telemedicine service next year. The service will initially focus on nephrology, says the New Straits Times.
