Message from CEO

Welcome to HMI Group.

Founded in 1998, HMI Group (“Group”) was listed on SGX Catalist on 15 October 1999 and upgraded to the SGX Mainboard on 10 March 2008. Today, we are a growing regional healthcare provider with two tertiary hospitals in Malaysia, a social enterprise that provides healthcare training and education as well as a new one-stop ambulatory care centre in Singapore. We are committed to not just improve the lives of our patients, but that of the larger community by leveraging on our people, consistent innovation and technological expertise. Recently delisted from the Singapore Stock Exchange, HMI further strengthens its business expansion and its vision of being a leading healthcare group in Asia.

With our successful rebranding exercise in June 2018, which reaffirmed all our businesses’ visions and mission under one logo and identity, the Group is better able to serve the community through provision of quality healthcare through an enlarged healthcare platform with our unified heartfelt human touch. Our healthcare platform continues to grow as we focus on regional growth strategies built upon the two-prongs of operational and service excellence that are further supported by continual investment in medical technologies and human capital.

Under one logo and identity, HMI Group and its businesses are better able to respond to the demographic changes in the regional healthcare scene that include rising affluence, an ageing population and wider insurance coverage. Consequently, there is a regional increase in demand for quality healthcare. To further organic growth and cater to increasing patient load, our hospitals in Malaysia are undergoing further expansion works. At Mahkota Medical Centre (“Mahkota”), we expanded the departments’ clinical areas. Regency Specialist Hospital (“Regency”) will commence the construction of a new hospital extension block adjacent to its existing hospital block, pending necessary approvals. The new block will add more inpatient beds, clinical services, operating theatres and clinic suites. Upon its completion, Regency will become a 380-bed tertiary hospital with capacity to expand to an eventual 500-bed hospital.

Our hard work and efforts to continually serve quality healthcare in the region, even with the rapid changes in the regional healthcare scene, have also been recognised internationally. In January 2020, Mahkota became the first hospital in Melaka to become Joint Commission International (JCI)-accredited. JCI is the international gold standard to ensure best healthcare practices in quality and patient safety.

Our return to the Singapore’s healthcare scene on May 2018, HMI Group introduced the concept of the new one-stop multidisciplinary ambulatory care centre in the form of StarMed Specialist Centre (“StarMed”). StarMed focuses on providing quality and convenient private healthcare that saves time and money for the individual, with specialties in cardio-vascular (heart & lungs), digestive (gut), minimally invasive surgeries and diagnostic services.

Community engagement has always been a consistent commitment by HMI Group, given our strong belief that general healthcare and diseases prevention knowledge is key to ensuring better health in the community and hence improvement of the community’s quality of life. Our commitment is evident in all of our businesses. In October 2019, both Mahkota and Regency simultaneously organised the largest-participated public CPR learning event in Melaka and Johor Bahru respectively in our effort to educate the community on performing CPR and its importance in saving a life during emergencies. In Singapore, HMI Institute cemented its transformation in November 2019 into a social enterprise that provides healthcare training and education. To date, HMI Institute has trained more than 4,500 healthcare professionals to support the Singapore healthcare system and 160,000 individuals in Emergency life-saving skills.
