On October 21-22, 2014, a media delegation from Malaysia, including Long Life, Nanyang Siang Pau, Guangming Daily, and China Press, visited Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. General Manager Lin Shaohua, President Wang Huaizhong and Vice President Chen Bing, on behalf of the hospital, received them warmly.
At the greeting meeting, General Manager Lin Shaohua first made a full-scale introduction of the hospital and the development of the hospital’s overseas offices to all media members. He said, “We sincerely hope this event would help strengthen exchanges and cooperation between China and Malaysia in healthcare field and bring the gospel of rehabilitation to more cancer patients."
Whereafter, the media delegation, accompanied by Vice President Chen Bing, visited each department of the hospital as well as VIP wards. The medial delegation also called on three overseas cancer patients, and carefully learnt about their physical condition, curative effect, their life in the hospital as well as medical expense. The last patient they visited was from Indonesia, who was diagnosed with rectal cancer. When the journalists learnt that after minimally invasive treatment, tumor in the patient’s body has shrunk by 50% and he has gained 9kg, all of them expressed strong interest in this treatment which causes small trauma but maximizes patients’ quality of life.
Minimally Invasive Therapy Aroused Great Interest in the Media Delegation
The first question was from Ong Eng Leong, journalist from Long Life, asking about what distinguishes Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou from the hospitals in Malaysia. President Wang Huaizhong replied that, compared with hospitals in Malaysia which only provide patients with traditional surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou not only has traditional cancer treatments, but also provides middle and advanced cancer patients with 16 world-leading minimally invasive therapies and biotherapy, including Iodine seeds implantation, cryotherapy, biological immunotherapy, etc. Under the guidance of medical imaging equipments, those treatments can be more accurate and effective, which in the end bring patients a good prognosis, improve their quality of life and effectively prolong their survival time.
“Advanced medical technology is one of our advantages. The second advantage is our excellent MDT group composed of international leading oncologists,” President Wang Huaizhong said, “While hospitals in Malaysia diagnose and treat patients by different medical departments, Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou uses the concept of MDT (Multi-disciplinary Team) to treat cancer patients. As the most advanced treatment mode in the world, MDT gathers experts and specialists from different healthcare professions with specialized skills and expertise together to customize a personalized treatment plan for the patients, instead of transferring the patients from one department to another. MDT can ensure patients a normative and systematic treatment, lessen patients’ medical expense and promote their rehabilitation. It is a very effective way for cancer patients. It can realize a multi-disciplinary collaboration for comprehensive treatment of clinical disease and solve problems more effectively.”
President Wang Huaizhong also added that Kuala Lumpur office is a service center that Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou provided for patients in Malaysia, so that they can still enjoy the follow-up service of the hospital in their own country. What’s more, the free cancer seminar hosted by the overseas office from time to time will provide cancer patients in Malaysia a face to face communication with the experts, and help them gain more knowledge of cancer prevention. Meanwhile, advices from majority patients will also contribute to the future planning and construction of the hospital, providing the patients with better medical service.
As for how Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou respects multi-ethnic culture of patients, President Wang Huaizhong said that the hospital has constantly adheres to a “patient-oriented” service concept, respecting patient’s national customs and religions, providing patients with various characterized services in their hospital life and diet, such as religious service, monthly “anti-cancer warrior” election and award, one day tour in Guangzhou, etc. The hospital also has a Nutritional Dietary House and a public kitchen for patients to get proper diet. All those services are set to eliminate the anxiety and loneliness of overseas patients, to make them happy and relax, so as to get the best curative effect.
When the interview came to the end, members of the media delegation all spoke highly of the advanced medical technology and humanistic service of Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou which greatly help cancer patients from Malaysia. They said that they would help promote the medical exchange and communication between the two countries through media reports and bring more hope to cancer patients in Malaysia.
