With healthcare tourism beginning to find its way back to Malaysia, KTMB and CVSKL have officially launched their partnership initiatives in providing free rides for patients across West Malaysia. This initiative by CVSKL aims to promote domestic healthcare tourism and enhance the healthcare industry by providing hassle-free transportation for patients who need critical cardiac and vascular treatments.

CVSKL is strategically located in the nation’s transportation hub, KL Sentral where most of the passenger rail networks serve KL Sentral station. Regarded widely as a tertiary referral centre, patients from all over Malaysia are referred to CVSKL to seek further cardiac and vascular treatment, especially if their cases are deemed complex by their primary doctor.

The KTMB – CVSKL partnership was piloted in 2022 with encouraging ticket redemptions. With the official launch, both parties hope to improve healthcare tourism by providing more seamless access for patients who are living in Greater Klang Valley. In attendance at the ceremonious occasion were the Chairman of CVSKL, Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Yahya Awang, Chief Executive Officer of CVSKL, Mr Tan Eng Ghee, Group CEO of KTM Berhad, Yang Berbahagia, Datuk Mohd Rani Hisham Samsudin, and representatives from both companies.

Commenting on the purpose-driven commitment, Datuk Mohd Rani Hisham Samsudin highlighted his enthusiasm to bring forth medical tourism again as the borders are reopening and to encourage Malaysians to take concern for their heart health seriously. Quoting Datuk Mohd Rani Hisham Samsudin, CEO of KTMB Berhad, “We are proud of this partnership with CVSKL that aligns with the mission of KTMB; to provide safe, reliable, comfortable and sustainable rail services on time, every time.

Tan Sri Dato’ Dr Yahya Awang commented, “CVSKL is recognized as a Centre of Excellence for all cardiac and vascular matters. The patients that we treat not only come from the Klang Valley but greater cities such as Butterworth, Padang Besar and Ipoh. We hope that this initiative will provide better convenience to our patients and we’d also like to thank KTMB for supporting this wholeheartedly.”

Speaking at the launch, Mr Tan Eng Ghee, Chief Executive Officer of CVSKL also emphasised “This collaboration allows us to address patients’ needs at the same time looking after their transportation welfare, which is what we as a hospital aim to achieve; to envision the patient journey even before they get to the hospital and to make it easier for them.” CVSKL hints at more partnerships with other rail lines, to further serve the community.

With the official launch of this program, CVSKL and KTMB Berhad wish that fellow Malaysians will make use of the free rides offered to CVSKL patients.
