Saint James Hospital, Sliema, forms part of the Saint James Hospital Group, Malta’s leading provider in the private healthcare sector. It is the larger of the Group’s two hospitals, is located in a quiet suburb of the Island’s main retail and commercial district and is just a five minute walk away from the seafront.
The Group is known for its medical expertise, professionalism, continuous investment and innovation and as such this 80-bedded hospital offers state-of-the-art equipment and is staffed by fully-qualified doctors and nurses, fluent in English, Maltese and Italian, amongst other languages.
The services offered are comprehensive and range from simple blood tests and diagnostic scans to a full complement of elective, cosmetic, orthopaedic, and cardiac surgery. Specialised services include obesity surgery, fertility treatment, dedicated eye services and dental services.
The hospital offers a luxurious atmosphere that provides a warm welcome to its clients and follows the highest standards of personal care and service. Former patients have compared their stay at Saint James Hospital, to residing in a hotel with special care and medical assistance as a special bonus.
Despite its small size, the medical services offered by Maltese healthcare providers are of the highest quality. Early on in history the island came to be known as the nurse of the Mediterranean and this attests to the advanced level of healthcare services practiced. In 2007 Malta was ranked by the World Health Organisation among the top 10 healthcare providers in the world. Malta’s location and its mild Mediterranean climate make it an excellent convalescence destination. Communicating in Malta is also not a problem as the vast majority of inhabitants understands and speaks the English language.
