Medicap provides alternative methods and medical expertise within a building

BY combining a clinic and a wellness centre within a building, MediCap Sdn Bhd (Medicap) aims to “revolutionise the modern medicine landscape in Malaysia” and it recently officially opened its clinic arm at Taman Perindustrian Pusat Bandar Puchong, Selangor.

The opening was officiated by member of the Dewan Rakyat and Parliament representative for Puchong Yeo Bee Yin.

It was attended by special functions officer to the Tourism, Arts and Culture minister Lim Kai Hau, Medicap founder and chief executive officer Lim Chin Hau and the Medicap management team.

It previously held a soft launch in October last year for its Rejuvenate Wellness centre and after the clinic, will soon add on dental care, dialysis and aesthetics to its list.

Business Development director, Dr Cheng Qing Nein said that having a wellness centre and a clinic within a building allows patients to have a more holistic experience with their health.

“In the wellness centre, we use non-invasive, alternative methods, which can be considered preventive treatments.

These include a range of tests that measure body composition, nutritional level and more.

“While downstairs, there is a full-fledged clinic headed by general practitioner Dr Kalaivanan Makanthran.

He said that there are cases where patients would benefit from the alternative approach and not from medication. That’s when he would recommend them to the wellness centre upstairs.

“Not every disease or problem can be cured by medicines. I would filter though the patients, find out the root cause of their ailments and if they can be treated without invasive, non-medical therapies, then will refer them to doctors in the wellness centre, which is within the same building.

“So this functions as a one-stop health centre,” said Dr Kalaivanan.

The company also introduced a skincare range called Milaya, which focuses on plant-based nutrients. The products are formulated using technologies and natural ingredients from all over the world.

The event was also graced by national athletes such as four-time world bodybuilder champion Mohd Syarul Azman Mahen Abdullah, wushu sportswoman Tan Cheong Min and table tennis ace Ho Ying who are the company’s ambassadors.

Dr Cheng said unlike most conventional brands that employ influencers, or celebrities, Medicap prefers to focus on athletes.

With its first Rejuvenate Wellness centre set up in Brickfield, Kuala Lumpur in 2017, the company soon was established in 2017 as the sole and exclusive marketing arm for Rejuvenate Wellness.

Today its wellness centres are spread out in Sibu, Sarikei, Bintulu, Kluang, Seri Manjung and the current one in Puchong, which serves by appointment only.
