The hospital aims to provide personalised and advanced healthcare services in Shah Alam and the Klang Valley

AVISENA Healthcare celebrated the groundbreaking of its additional medical facility at Avisena Specialist Hospital in Shah Alam, Selangor, on June 10.

The expansion marks the organisation's commitment to providing advanced quality patient care to cater to the increasing population in the Klang Valley.

The event was officiated by Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad and attended by Avisena Healthcare chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof, Avisena Healthcare Group chief executive officer Elina Nadia Omar, Avisena Specialist Hospital Shah Alam chief executive officer Dr Razman Abd Karim and Avisena Specialist Hospital Shah Alam medical director Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Mohd Ali.

The 11-storey expansion building, set to be completed and operational by 2027, will feature 275 beds, 35 subspecialties, over 80 specialist suites, 10 state-of-the-art operation theatres – including one hybrid operation theatre – and comprehensive oncology services.

It is designed with a modern biophilic architectural concept, promoting a healing environment through natural elements, and a two-storey enclosed bridge will connect the building to the existing Avisena Specialist Hospital structure.

This expansion aims to enhance the hospital’s ability to deliver healthcare services to a broader patient base, aligning with the government's public-private partnership (PPP) initiatives to strengthen healthcare access nationwide.

“Based on statistics from 2020, the number of beds in all Malaysian hospitals stood at 65,508. That is a ratio of two hospital beds for every thousand Malaysians – which is good, but not good enough,” said Dzulkefly.

“Our target for the 12th Malaysia Plan is to increase this ratio of beds and optimise their use through various means. The expansion of Avisena Specialist Hospital is a commendable initiative that aligns with our national healthcare objectives.

“Increasing the number of hospital beds and enhancing specialised services can improve healthcare access and quality for all Malaysians.”

With this expansion, Avisena Specialist Hospital is set to elevate its Centres of Excellence, encompassing fields such as cardiology, diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism (ADEM), orthopaedics (trauma and spine) and ear, nose and throat (ENT).

These specialised units will enhance the hospital’s ability to provide advanced care in critical areas of medicine and make it the largest comprehensive oncology hub in the Shah Alam and Klang districts by 2027.

“Today marks a historic moment for Avisena Healthcare as we embark on this significant expansion. We are committed to providing top-quality healthcare, and with this new facility, we aim to bridge the gap between patients and healthcare providers, ensuring quality and efficient care for all,” said Elina.

“This expansion not only enhances our capacity but is also designed with patient comfort in mind. It integrates smart technology to improve service delivery and reduce waiting times, making healthcare more accessible and efficient.

“With the introduction of state-of-the-art chemotherapy and radiotherapy facilities, we are dedicated to addressing the increasing demand for advanced cancer care, which includes supporting ongoing research to find better treatments.”

In support of cancer awareness and treatment, Avisena Healthcare also made an RM10,000 donation to the National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM).

The hospital also serves as a hub for medical tourism as collaborations with the Malaysia Health Tourism Council and government agencies aim to boost national efforts to attract international patients.

Avisena Healthcare also provides free medical services through Klinik Bergerak Sutera, while Yayasan Avisena supports underprivileged patients, especially in emergency and life-saving cases.

By 2027, the group will be able to provide 405 patient beds, 13 operation theatres, 150 medical specialists and 1,600 staff across its Shah Alam hospitals.

Beyond Shah Alam, Avisena Healthcare is also expanding its network of hospitals with the upcoming Avisena Specialist Hospital Cyberjaya which is set to be operational by 2029, which will also see the expansion of the Avisena Dialysis Centre network.
