Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA, 3 July – Aurelius Healthcare Sdn Bhd (Aurelius Healthcare), a healthcare group that aspires to be the leading healthcare platform in Southeast Asia, is pleased to announce its 3rd partnership, a majority stake in Pahang Medical Centre (PMC), post its acquisition of hospitals in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan and Alor Setar, Kedah in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
The new partnership, which will be rebranded from PMC to Aurelius Hospital Pahang in the coming months, is aligned with Aurelius Healthcare's objectives for its group's growth on the East Coast. With patient care as a key priority, it will also be instrumental in strengthening the medical services to patients in the region.

Additionally, we shall grow a Centre of Excellence in Women & Children, Orthopaedics, minimally invasive Surgical disciplines, Cardiology and eventually Neurosciences. Through this transformation, we aim that the patients, clinicians, employees, partners and communities we serve have a greater experience and receive desired clinical outcomes," added Dato' Amir.
