With a strong tradition of working to improve the outcomes of patients through integrated clinical practice, innovation, cutting-edge research and new models of care, Jerudong Park Medical Centre (JPMC), a private specialist hospital in Brunei Darussalam, is at the forefront of adapting to new medical challenges while providing top-notch patient care. Offering a spectrum of services including general, specialised and surgical healthcare, these services are provided by highly qualified and committed multidisciplinary medical team using state-of-the-art technology.

Pioneering expansion to serve the community better, JPMC is set to open Borneo’s first liver transplant facility in mid-2019. The expansion will help strengthen Brunei’s capability in becoming a medical hub for high-end, advanced medical and surgical care in Asia. The facility made possible through a joint medical partnership between JPMC and Yashoda Hospitals, India will perform transplants from living donors. In this partnership, JPMC and Yashoda commit to bring in a team of highly trained specialists to address the exchange and transfer of knowledge within the next five years and set the agenda to support local talents for the best chance of clinical impact.

Founded in 1992, JPMC became the first hospital in Brunei to receive accreditation from the Joint Commission International (JCI) in 2014 and was re-accredited for the second time in 2017, the first for any health institution in the country. Accreditation and certification from JCI is recognised as the gold seal of approval for international quality standards for patient care and organisation management. It further testifies to JPMC’s commitment towards patient well-being, safety and rights, and services and excellence in the medical industry.

Along with more traditional services, such as family medicine, child and maternal care, the development of new specialist programmes will assist in addressing the robust strengthening of JPMC’s existing services. In addition to excellent diagnostic services, JPMC also offers 29 clinical specialties and sub-specialties, including Endocrinology, Gynaecology, Nephrology, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics and Implantology.
