Kuala Lumpur – The new healthcare group, Aurelius Healthcare Sdn. Bhd. (“Aurelius”) which aspires to be the leading healthcare management platform in the Southeast Asia region, today announced the acquisition of its first hospital – the 100-bed multidisciplinary Nilai Medical Centre. This acquisition is a strong fit with Aurelius’ strategy to transform healthcare delivery and to achieve the most favourable outcomes for patients’ health. Pursuant to the acquisition, Nilai Medical Centre will start operating as Aurelius Hospital Nilai in September 2021 and remains ready to serve the community in Nilai and beyond.
The founder and Group Managing Director of Aurelius Healthcare, Dato’ Amir Firdaus Abdullah, said, “We are delighted with this acquisition, and with the rebranding of the hospital as Aurelius Hospital Nilai. We aspire for rapid growth and improvements on this excellent hospital with its dedicated doctors and staff. It will continue to serve the communities in Negeri Sembilan, Selangor, and Melaka, and shall be fully transformed for Oncology Care, Cardiology, Women & 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 care givers with exceptional care and support.
Our commitment is to improve the facilities and services and to always ensure that the patients, clinicians, employees, partners, and communities we serve have a great experience and desired clinical outcomes.”
In May 2021, Navis Capital Partners completed a majority investment into Aurelius Healthcare and is committed to growing the organisation with the aim of having 5-10 hospitals rapidly operating within the platform.
“Aurelius and Navis have a common vision on how private healthcare could better serve the communities in the region. Through world-class healthcare management practise, engagement with various stakeholders around common goals, integrated care and investments into medical technology, we will make healthcare more accessible for our communities,” said Edwin Fua, Partner at Navis Capital.
“This acquisition is also just the first step in our multi-step journey with Aurelius Healthcare and we encourage any party that wishes to take this journey with us to reach out for a discussion. We are open to partnership discussions on both greenfield and brownfield basis,” he added.
Aurelius Hospital Nilai, led by Dr Darshini Kumar, the new Chief Executive Officer, provides a complete spectrum of services and care within our Centres of Excellence which include a Cancer Care Centre, Heart Centre, Orthopaedic Centre, Women & Children Centre and General Surgery.
Aurelius Healthcare was founded in Malaysia by a team of industry veterans with global healthcare management experience who aspire to modernise and make healthcare more accessible across the nation.
