Mount Miriam Cancer HospitalMount Miriam Cancer Hospital is a not-for-profit single disciplined cancer hospital which boasts of the latest-state-of-the-art cancer treatment in the Northern Region of Malaysia. To date, we have been treating cancer patients with three Linear Accelerators, PET-CT Scanner, and other diagnostic tools. Our medical team consists of highly qualified Clinical Oncologists and Radiotherapists, Medical Physicists, Therapy and Diagnostic Radiographers and Oncology Nurses.

As a not-for profit organisation, our mission is to offer respectful, compassionate and integrated healthcare which will include the use of modern technology, in such a way that all who come to us will experience themselves as being infinitely valued by a compassionate God.

Who are we

Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital was founded 38 years ago as a not-for-profit hospital by the Sisters of The Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood to provide compassionate nursing care to those in the late stages of cancer. Recognising the intensive need for active cancer treatment, Mount Miriam expanded into a cancer treatment centre while continuing with palliative care.

Today we are one of the leading cancer hospitals in Malaysia offering a wide range of cancer services. The commitment to high quality, compassionate and holistic care at the most affordable cost has always been our mission since our inception. To date we have treated and cared for more than 30,000 cancer patients. The public is now able to relate to us as a mission hospital offering one of the best cancer treatments in the region.

Mount Miriam is a not-for-profit hospital, we do not compromise on the quality of our services. On the contrary, we always strive to give the best standard in cancer care and treatment to all our patients regardless of age, race or religion. Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital has since the early 80’s provide radiotherapy treatment services to the Ministry of Health for patients referred by the General Hospital in the Northern Region.

Why supporting Mount Miriam is such a worthy cause?

  • Mount Miriam is a not- for- profit hospital NOT only in name but in DEEDS as well
  • Our charges are on an average 20% cheaper than the other private hospitals
  • We disburse on an average RM70,000 per month to aid the needy patients by way of discounts on treatments and on drugs
  • We operate a palliative ward at subsidized rates for those terminally ill and needy patients where we provide palliative nursing care and pain management to lessen their pain

More importantly we have a policy in place of not turning away patients just because they do not have the means to pay deposits for treatment or admission.

Our appeal

As a not-for-profit cancer hospital, we do not receive grand or funding from the government. We rely heavily on the support of the community.

We are appealing for financial support for a 12 seater Toyota passenger van at an estimate cost of RM120,000.00 where we can provide free transport services for patients from the general hospital referred to Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital for treatment. We are also looking at offering transport services for outstation patients who may require medical procedure at other hospitals where Mount Miriam is not equipped with.

Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital do not own a ambulance nor a passenger van to support such services for the community at this point of time. Moving forward we hope to be able to offer free transport services for the benefit of cancer patients.
