About Us


Melorita Healthcare is a Malaysian based healthcare recruitment agency. Set up over 35 years ago we are the pioneers in this business and have been providing healthcare professionals with the best jobs in locations around the world for over 3 decades.

In the early 80’s Melorita responded to a request from King Abdulaziz University Hospital for the supply of nursing staff from Malaysia to work in the hospital located in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Dr Mohamed Sultan, the founder of Melorita managed to convince the management of the hospital as to the quality of Malaysian nurses and convinced them to offer Malaysians jobs with salaries under the “Western” category which meant they would earn more than double what their other Asian counterparts were receiving at the time. This agreement continues to this day and is the legacy that Melorita created for Malaysian healthcare professionals working in the Middle East. This also pioneered the opening of opportunities for Malaysian professionals to offer their services to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Over the next 20 years Melorita managed to build itself the reputation as the leading provider of healthcare staffing to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.


Since then the company has expanded rapidly and currently provides its’ recruitment services to over 30 healthcare organizations in 6 countries around the world including Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Singapore, Brunei and right here in Malaysia. Melorita is currently recognized as the largest healthcare recruitment company in Malaysia that specializes in sourcing and supplying healthcare talent including Doctors, Nurses and Allied Health professionals for organizations around the world.

Melorita continues to grow and is always looking for new opportunities to provide its clients and candidates and is committed to its vision of being a global company with world class practices.


MELORITA has its headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and branch offices in all major cities in Malaysia including Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu.

Our mission at Melorita is “Making Dreams Come True” by providing our candidates with job opportunities that will help improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Our commitment to this mission has helped us keep sight of our promise to our candidates that they will be serviced with professionalism, care and a high level of respect and integrity at all times.

Our commitment to quality has seen Melorita being awarded the internationally recognized ISO9001:2008 Total Quality Management certification in 2007 and to date we have been successfully been reaccredited every year since then.
