Malaysia is unique in having a medical fee schedule that is mandated by law. The Fee Schedule is within the Private Healthcare Facilities & Services Act 1998 / 2006 Regulations and prescribes the maximum fees that may be charged by physicians for consultations, ward rounds and procedures.

“PCMC is now under direct management of experienced Malaysian managers chosen for their experience and expertise within the local private hospital sector, with key position holders having a minimum of 10 years prior private hospital experience,” says Dr. Chong Su-lin, Managing Director of Prince Court Medical Center. “There has been no change of ownership. The owner is still Petronas Hartabina.”
