The Transformation of a Distinct Multi-specialty Private Hospital Here In Bintulu

Columbia Asia Group of Hospitals’ presence in Malaysia spans over two decades. From its humble beginnings, today Columbia Asia has 30 multi-discipline specialty hospitals in operation that cover four major countries in South Asia; 12 in Malaysia, three in Indonesia, three in Vietnam and 12 in India. This modern private healthcare group is also expanding its presence across the rest of Asia with more facilities currently at different stages of development.

What does Columbia Asia stand for?
The Columbia Asia Hospital private healthcare model is distinct in the comprehensiveness of its medical programme and its strong sense of commitment towards clinical governance and evidence-based patient outcomes. Over the years, these values have remained the pillars of Columbia Asia’s beliefs. The success of this private healthcare model is being replicated across the region to help meet the ever-growing demand for effective and efficient healthcare.

Columbia Asia is also at the forefront of being an excellent healthcare provider for families, corporates, third party administrators and insurances. Across the group, Columbia Asia provides specialised services such as cardiology, internal medicine, general surgery, orthopaedic surgery, obstetrics, gynaecology, paediatrics, ENT, urology, ophthalmology, anaesthesiology, radiology and many more.

The governance of Columbia Asia
Medical governance remains a key pillar in ensuring that a healthcare facility remains focused on providing the best patient care possible. Every Columbia Asia Hospital has a Medical Advisory Committee that consists of the heads of department of each medical and surgical discipline and chaired by the Chief of Medical Services based in each Columbia Asia Hospital.

Above this medical governing structure at the facility, Columbia Asia prides itself in having established a Medical Advisory Board (MAB) that is made up of all Chiefs of Medical Services from all Columbia Asia Group of Hospitals. The board is chaired by the company’s Group Medical Director.

The three primary roles and focus of the MAB is to continually raise the standard and quality of patient care, conduct stringent credentialing and clinical privileging of consultants and uphold uncompromising commitment towards the ethics and conduct of practitioners of patient care.
