From a vision of one man wanting to bring quality healthcare closer to the community, it started with his first GP clinic POLIKLINIK PENAWAR in Tampoi, Johor, Malaysia within an area of lower middle-class community caterring to the medical needs of families in that area. That was in August 1992.
In August 1993, the second POLIKLINIK PENAWAR opened in the Skudai area catering to the needs of the academia of Universiti Technology of Malaysia and its surrounding communities. It operated 24 hours.
From the onset of the second clinic, highly qualified doctors were selected and employed rather than the usual partnership arrangement. This is to ensure continuity of business expansion and reduce the risk of partner dispute which can lead to the demise of services.
From then on, there was no looking back. The business was incorporated in June 1994 as Kumpulan Perubatan Penawar Sdn Bhd (KPP) with its own management team and Board of Directors. This promotes further expansion with the vision of the company's directors being implemented by its team of management.
Now with its team of assertive and energetic workforce, the company has transformed itself from its single practice GP in the beginning into a well-organised and reputable corporation. Its professionally trained team provided efficient and dedicated services to the general public as well as to corporate clients.
The range of services provided now has expanded to other related medical services like Pharmacy, Psychiatric Specialist Clinic, a community Hospital, Occupational Health Services, Dialysis Centre and many more.
The continous support it received will ensure its team to strive to provide even better service in the future.
