About Columbia Asia
International private healthcare company, Columbia Asia is owned by a US-based investment fund : International Columbia USA LLC (ICU).
Columbia Asia started operations in 1996. Currently it has 28 medical facilities across Asia; 11 in Malaysia, 11 in India, 3 in Vietnam and 3 in Indonesia. The company believes in setting up mid-size hospitals built in residential areas for accessibility and efficiency, and to better serve the respective communities. This also helps keep costs down for consumers with no compromise on healthcare quality, modern amenities and highly-trained teams of specialists and nurses.
Columbia Asia aims to be the preferred choice of healthcare services for families and businesses. With 100 to 150 beds per medical facility, two-storey buildings for smoother patient flow and new medical technologies to decrease the levels of invasive treatments, the efficiency of patient care is optimised resulting in a shorter length of stay. In turn, this results in transparency in rates with better affordability for patients. But as progressive as medical technology can be, the difference in healthcare relies much on its people – highly skilled medical consultants, caring nurses as well as teams of committed staff who see to every patient’s need, on the road to recovery.
Columbia Asia medical facilities provide a wide array of medical services such as General Surgery, Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Orthopaedics and Internal Medicine. These are supported by a comprehensive list of ancillary services that include and Intensive Care Unit, Neonatal Care Unit, Physiotherapy, Laboratory, Pharmacy and Imaging.
At Columbia Asia, comprehensive medical programmes demand ethics, excellence and strict clinical governance. All of its operations follow international quality assurance guidelines that meet the highest standard of patient care possible.
