Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) – National Heart Institute in Kuala Lumpur

Institut Jantung Negara (IJN), also known as the National Heart Institute, is Malaysia’s premier heart centre. Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) was part of the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital until 1st August 1992 when it was corporatised and established as a separate and specialist entity delivering the most advanced standards in cardiovascular and thoracic medicine for adult and pediatric heart patients.

The only centre specializing in treatment and management of heart diseases, Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) offers a comprehensive range of services for cardiovascular medicine with all types of interventions; both diagnostic and therapeutic and cardiac surgeries for open heart, closed heart, thoracic and transplants are performed.

JN has since gained wider recognition as the leading Cardiovascular and Thoracic Health Centre in the region as the rising number of referrals for complicated and demanding cases and visits from foreign cardiologists.

Since its establishment, Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) has kept abreast with the latest medical advances from just handling a simple hole in the heart to heart and lung transplantation. Today, Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) have a highly competent team of cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, support staff to handle emergencies and even the most complicated cases.

To continue to be the leading heart institution in the region, Institut Jantung Negara (IJN) actively support training, research and development activities that will be applied to enhance their standards of care. And with their collaborations with leading international medical establishments such as the UK’s Papworth Hospital and the Herz-und in Germany they are able to introduce new clinical techniques without delay.
