New Wellness Hub Planned Near Airport to Boost Medical Tourism

A new 26.49-acre development project is being planned for construction near the international airport to boost medical tourism in the country.

The Kuala Lumpur Wellness City (KLWC) is a new purpose-built wellness hub that will include a 624-bed International Tertiary Hospital with a scalable capacity of 1,000 beds and a Nobel Healthcare Park offering medical, wellness, business, and retail suites.

“The Healthcare Travel Industry Blueprint 2021-2025 by the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council has identified that ‘Step down, rehab and wellness development for health care travel’ is one of the critical touchpoints that require key improvements,” KL Wellness City Managing Director Dr. Colin Lee was quoted as saying in a report by the International Travel & Health Insurance Journal (ITIJ).

“In terms of medical tourism, the wellness suites cater for patients who are in step-down care — those who have been discharged from hospital but are still recovering and may require assistance such as daily physiotherapy or rehabilitation.”

He added that the suites will also accommodate the families of medical tourists who will need a place to stay near their loved ones.
