Healthcare companies in Malaysia

A healthcare facility in Malaysia is defined as an establishment that provides healthcare services to public clients. These may include medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy or ambulance services and they may also be services related to medical screening, imaging, preventive services or generally any health-related services. 

No healthcare establishment may function without the proper approvals and licenses and medical practitioners need to be registered professionals. The license may be granted to sole proprietors in Malaysia, partnerships or corporations. One of our lawyers in Malaysia can give you complete details on these types of business structures.
