KPJ Healthcare


About The Client

KPJ Healthcare is one of Malaysia’s largest private healthcare service providers, and has a network of 28 specialist hospitals located throughout Malaysia as well as 2 hospitals in Indonesia, a hospital in Bangkok and a hospital in Bangladesh. In addition, it has invested in retirement and aged-care facilities in Australia, Sarawak, and Pahang, as well as set up its own senior living care centre in Kuala Lumpur.
