KUALA LUMPUR, August 14 — Sunway Medical Centre Velocity (SMCV) is celebrating its first anniversary by giving free medical check-ups for women, children, and other conditions like cancer.
SMCV’s “#SMCVgivesKAWKAW” campaign from August 17 to September 30 will see health care consultants from several departments, such as women’s and children’s departments, provide free consultations for first-time patients and encourage the public to make healthy lifestyle changes.
“With the prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCD), it is imperative to educate Malaysians on the importance of early detection and prevention through screenings and check-ups.
“Therefore, through this campaign, we aspire to make health care services more accessible to everyone and encourage Malaysians to make their health a top priority,” SMCV CEO Choo Voon Chee said in a statement.
Throughout the campaign, the private hospital in Kuala Lumpur will also be providing free prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests and RM188 for general blood test and tumour markers for people who would like to get tested in those areas.
“It is our duty to encourage Malaysians to prioritise their health, especially in recent times where health and wellbeing has taken precedence amidst the pandemic. Regular check-ups and screenings are important steps to ensure that they are staying on top of their health, early detection can save lives,” said SMCV medical director and consultant emergency physician Dr Wee Tong Ming.
SMCV was officially opened on September 4, 2019, as part of the integrated development of Sunway Velocity, which includes the Sunway Velocity Mall and Sunway Velocity Hotel.
Targeted to improve health care in Cheras and KL South communities, the comprehensive tertiary care hospital includes inpatient and outpatient care, 24-hour emergency services, physician specialist clinics, diagnostic imaging facilities and medical and surgical capabilities.
