Underprivileged patients can access free medical treatment at Gleneagles Kota Kinabalu as part of the hospital’s corporate giving initiative under the ‘Life Renewed’ programme.
‘Life Renewed’ is a community programme by Parkway Pantai that sponsors medical treatment to needy patients in its home markets of Malaysia and Singapore. Since it was launched in 2012, ‘Life Renewed’ has enabled more than 1,300 underprivileged patients gain access to the expertise of Parkway Pantai’s network of healthcare professionals and medical facilities.
In 2018, Parkway Pantai injected fresh funding of RM6 million in support of its ‘Life Renewed’ programme in Malaysia, for utilisation by its local network of 14 Gleneagles and Pantai hospitals. Gleneagles Kota Kinabalu is one of them. Since the hospital opened in 2015, it has sponsored medical treatment for 22 needy patients through ‘Life Renewed’.
The beneficiaries of ‘Life Renewed’ come from disadvantaged backgrounds and have no financial means of accessing quality medical treatment. Upon referral to Gleneagles Kota Kinabalu, their medical conditions are assessed by consultants. The patients are also put through a stringent screening process to ensure they meet the eligibility criteria for ‘Life Renewed’, so that the funds go towards helping those who are truly in need. The ‘Life Renewed’ programme is available at all Parkway Pantai hospitals in Malaysia.The Health
