“Malaysia is a key market for our growth strategy in the Asia-Pacific region where we are now serving patients in five countries.”
“We always have been dedicated to delivering quality care to our patients, and we constantly seek opportunities to improve the care they receive,” said Dr. Ong Kee Liang, founding nephrologist of CDC Group.

As of today, the number of dialysis centres is about 24.
