SINGAPORE (June 4): Integrated healthcare company Clearbridge Health says it is planning to open a new 1,500 sq ft clinic along Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, to serve more domestic patients and medical tourists.

The new clinic will near-double the size of the existing 800 sq ft medical facility known as Clearbridge Medical Center, which is located along 555 Hennessy Road.

According to the company, its Hong Kong clinic served some 350 patients per month, of which the majority are medical tourists from China.

Clearbridge says the expanded clinic can accommodate more visiting physicians and specialists, hence providing a wider range of medical and health screening services to meet the growing medical needs of the Chinese market segment.

It will also feature a dedicated space to hold educational health talks and events for medical tourist agents and patients to gain understanding and knowledge on various third party medical services and solutions offered by Clearbridge in Asia.

“Hong Kong’s proximity to China has been a boost for medical tourism and with our collaborations with insurance companies and healthcare partners, we are seeing increasing demand for our primary healthcare services from this market segment,” says Jeremy Yee, executive director and CEO of Clearbridge.  

“Supporting the growth of Clearbridge’s precision medicine platform in Asia, our new clinic in Hong Kong enhances our capabilities to serve more patients and create new cross-selling opportunities of the various third party world-class medical services and solutions offered by the group,” he adds.

Shares in Clearbridge closed 1.3% lower at 15 cents on Monday.
