Ahmad Shahizam Bin Mohd Shariff
I came onboard as President and Managing Director of KPJ Healthcare in July 2020 during one of the most significant public health crises in recent times. Though times have been challenging for healthcare industry and staff, so far we have managed to pull through and put in a resilient performance over the past year. I am proud of the efforts of our staff, doctors and nurses working in our vaccination centres who are putting in extra effort to help the nation move towards herd immunity.
Only recently in May, KPJ Healthcare celebrated its 40th Anniversary. Starting out with a single hospital in Johor Bahru, the company has grown to become the largest private healthcare group in Malaysia. Today, the company has a total of 28 hospitals across the country, with a new hospital, KPJ Damansara 2 to be added in 2022. The growth of KPJ Group has been tremendous and we are grateful for the support from all our stakeholders who have helped in building KPJ to where it is today. KPJ has also developed a strong commitment to the communities that we serve. Klinik Waqaf An Nur (KWAN), our flagship community outreach programme established in 1998, has also grown significantly, with total of 23 Clinics nationwide, providing low income groups and communities access to affordable, high-quality healthcare.
