Maintenance services are performed to ensure the equipment is operating according to manufacturer standard and maintained at a desired level of quality. The implementation of maintenance services may prevent unexpected breakdown and disruption of operations in a hospital. However, there were numbers of cases reported on the frequent breakdown of medical equipment even though the maintenance program is in place and practised. Therefore, the reliability of the maintenance services was questioned especially when the breakdowns occurred after the maintenance services being performed. This paper proposes a conceptual framework to determine the accurate maintenance program for medical equipment in the hospital using Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) method. The recommendation from the RCM will assist to identify the root cause of the breakdown and minimize the number of breakdown for medical equipment in the hospital. RCM process is known as one of the most effective maintenance approaches to reduce the number of maintenance activities and hence minimizing the cost of maintenance incurred.
