On February 17, Penang Adventist Hospital (PAH) formed a strategic alliance with Firefly, a low-cost carrier subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, to promote medical tourism to Penang. The partnership aims to “provide Indonesian travelers with greater opportunities to visit Penang while obtaining medical care,” according to the Southern Asia-Pacific Division website.
Passengers traveling to and from Penang from Medan and Banda Aceh will be able to take advantage of discounted health screening packages at PAH. “It is a great opportunity for the Penang Adventist Hospital to partner with different industries in the country and to introduce Adventist healthcare and lifestyle to business partners and tourists,” said Ronald Koh. “This opens up more avenues for the hospital to reach out and share God’s hope and healing through the ministry of health.”
According to the Adventist Review, Penang Adventist Hospital has risen from humble beginnings to become a “tertiary health-care center for the Malaysian community and international visitors.”
The hospital is supported by dedicated physicians, nurses, and health-care professionals, and employs modern medical equipment to provide high-quality health care. “We look forward to not only providing high-quality health-care services but also educating the community to make informed choices about their general well-being,” leaders said.
The hospital recently celebrated its 98th anniversary, and leaders look forward to many more years of serving their communities in Penang.
