KL is a popular destination for healthcare tourists due to its winning combination of high quality medical care and affordability. KL is home to a comprehensive range of medical facilities, providing a wide variety of medical services ranging from medical screening to open heart surgery. As a result, new clusters of excellence have been developed, most notably in health screening, the treatment of cancer and heart disease, and in the field of anaesthetics. A few of KL's premier medical centres are already accredited with the JCI (Joint Commission International) certification, representing rigorous standards of healthcare. This is a positive step in moving forward towards stronger international recognition.
