Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. According to the World Health Organization, wellness is a “state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”


Maintaining an optimal level of wellness is absolutely crucial to live a higher quality life...wellness matters.


And because wellness matters, Tawau Specialist Hospital (TSH) has specifically set-up a health screening programme intended to improve and promote health and fitness. We offer a wide range of screening packages to suit each patient’s individual needs.


During a wellness consultation, a patient will be able to discuss his/her health concerns with the attending doctor. A thorough medical and physical examination will be performed before both the doctor and patient decide on the most suitable screening package. Depending on the screening package chosen, the patient will then have blood tests done before proceeding to Vision Diagnostics Centre, at TB 7093 Bintang Garden Commercial Centre, Mile 3, Jalan Apas, Tawau, for the relevant medical imaging.   


TSH also offers Exercise Stress Test (EST) or Cardiac Stress Test, which will be done under the supervision of a physician. The American Heart Association recommends performing an Exercise Stress Test as the first choice for patients with medium risk of coronary heart disease.


All investigation results will be summarized and compiled into a neat folder for future references, and may be collected within 7 days of their last visit. Patients will be given a detailed explanation of the tests done, with all issues addressed and the necessary advice and follow-up given...because wellness matters!
