At Mahkota Medical Centre, we focus on providing consistently high quality and safe healthcare services to our patients and clients. It has been our utmost priority since the hospital was established in 1994.

We strive to improve by continuously identifying pain points and bottlenecks in the processes and systems, as well as rethinking on ways to better serve our patients. Once the changes have been implemented, measurements will be taken to check and validate the outcomes of the action plan.

The checking and validation of outcomes is performed both internally and by external auditors. We are pleased to have been accredited by the Malaysia Society for Quality in Health (MSQH) since 2008. In addition, our laboratory has also been awarded the MS ISO 15189 accreditation.

International Patient Safety Goals

Joint Commission International established the International Patient Safety Goals (IPSGs) in 2006 to help accredited organizations target critical areas where safety can be improved, such as medication management and reducing the risk of health care–acquired infections (HAIs). All Joint Commission International-accredited organizations are surveyed for compliance with the requirements of the goals as appropriate to the services the organization provides. Mahkota Medical Centre compliance with the International Patient Safety Goals was validated by Joint Commission International in 2020.
