“Currently, we have 3 physiotherapists and several visiting occupational therapists. In the future, we are bringing in more number of staff so that it is easier to take care of patients and scheduling rehab sessions. This is only Phase 1 development and the total area would be around 3000 square feet which will be built in the future,” said Parkway Pantai Head of Ambulatory, Allied Health and Ancillary, Hareef Muhammed at the launch.

In conjunction with the rehab service centre opening, the hospital received the Malaysian Society for Quality in Health (MSQH) accreditation award for four years which sets a benchmark of advocating, promoting, and supporting continuous quality improvements and safety in Malaysian healthcare arena.

“Although we started with some rough times in the beginning prior to the location which isn’t populated enough but as our heads of Parkway Pantai recognised the importance of building a hospital here and received positive feedbacks not only from the surrounding areas but also outside of Medini and Iskandar Puteri. In September this year, we are planning to set up dialysis and oncologist centres in the hospital,” said Gleneagles Medini Hospital Chief Operating Officer, Koh Lee Lee when interviewed.
