In the unfortunate event that you are injured and needs immediate medical attention while in Johor Bahru, you will most likely be sent to Sultanah Aminah Hospital.
Hospital Sultanah Aminah is the first General Hospital in Johor Bahru. Located facing the Straits of Johor (along Jalan Abu Bakar), it has a helipad of its own, and is easily recognisable with its brick facade. It looks a little run down, but the medical standard here is decent. Nowadays, most newborn Johorean babies are also delivered here.

A thing to note if you are visiting your relatives/ friends here – There is actually a dress code for visitors. And it is formalised with posters pasted near the entrance prohibiting visitors who are wearing:
1. Spaghetti Straps
2. Skirts at knee level or higher
The safest bet is to come in jeans or khakis. Of course, it is helpful to have a cardigan or sweater to “cover up”. Alternatively, you can bypass the security by skirting to the back of the hospital to access the wards.
If you are intending to deliver your baby here, you will probably be sent back home if your dilation is less than 3cm. The doctors/ midwives will tell you to go for natural birth as much as possible and even after delivery, the infant ward is quite packed. Its free for Malaysians though, so I am not complaining.
