KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) — Aurelius Healthcare Sdn Bhd (Aurelius), which aspires to be the leading healthcare management platform in Southeast Asia, has acquired its first hospital, the 100-bed multidisciplinary Nilai Medical Centre.
In a statement today, the country’s new healthcare player said the acquisition is a strong fit with its strategy to transform healthcare delivery and to achieve the most favourable outcomes for patients’ health.
Founder and group managing director Datuk Amir Firdaus Abdullah said the hospital would be rebranded as Aurelius Hospital Nilai.
“It will continue to serve the communities in Negeri Sembilan, Selangor and Melaka, and shall be fully transformed for oncology care, cardiology, women and children’s care, orthopaedics and all other clinical specialities of a tertiary hospital for patients at every stage of their life.
“There are plans to rapidly expand the hospital with an additional in-patient medical block to provide patients and caregivers with exceptional care and support,” he said.
In May 2021, Navis Capital Partners completed a majority investment into Aurelius Healthcare and is committed to grow the organisation with the aim of having five to 10 hospitals rapidly operating within the platform.
Edwin Fua, Partner at Navis Capital, said Aurelius and Navis have a common vision on how private healthcare could better serve the communities in the region.
“Through world-class healthcare management practice, engagement with various stakeholders around common goals, integrated care and investments into medical technology, we will make healthcare more accessible for our communities,” he added.
