About us

Saint James Hospital is ranked amongst the top private healthcare organisations on the Maltese Islands. Since conception, we have earned a reputation for innovation and excellence as we continue to provide expertise in healthcare disciplines, whilst translating medical knowledge into first- class patient care.
