Penang Adventist Hospital has been actively involved in charity work since its inception in 1924. This mission has thrived and remainded as one of our core mission since then. As a not-for-profit healthcare facility in the northern region of Malaysia, Penang Adventist Hospital has been able to mend hearts and change lives because corporate citizens as well as individual donors have shown that they care and made a lifetime of difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
Medical Charity Funds available for those in need of medical assistance are:
The hospital’s Medical Welfare Services Unit was established in 1997 to help the poor and needy with financial assistance.
The Medical Welfare Services team assists patients and/or patients’ relatives in seeking the appropriate healthcare treatment in PAH. The Medical Welfare Officer also liaises with doctors, nurses, other health professionals, as well as community resources and welfare agents in providing solutions for patients who are unable to meet medical costs. The Medical Welfare Services unit is a caring and responsive team that serves the local community who are in need of medical assistance by offering medical financial aid.
As responsible stewards of the charity funds, the team ensures that there is accountability and visibility for each case that is presented to the relevant committee for fund disbursement. The joy of seeing the patients’ smiling faces is the greatest gift for the Medical Welfare Officers who visit our patients post surgeries to show that we care for them beyond providing financial aid for their treatments and surgeries.
