Kuala Lumpur, 25th October 2019 - HealthMetrics, Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing corporate health benefits management platform, officially launched its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative with Hospis Malaysia as its sole beneficiary on Thursday, 24th October 2019.
Resonating with recent statement made by Deputy Minister of Health Dr. Lee Boon Chye who raised the need for more conversations about the importance of palliative care to be made to the public, HealthMetrics aims to contribute to this cause. Through this initiative, HealthMetrics looks towards raising awareness on the importance and benefits of palliative care, believing that those in need can gain easy access to this specialized medical care in order to live quality lives despite life-limiting conditions.
“Sometimes, a patient’s condition reaches a point where a cure is no longer possible. This is where palliative care comes in, as medical professionals look to ensure patients receive the proper care and comfort while maintaining their dignity and spending their remaining time surrounded by loved ones. As an organization which focuses on employee well-being, we believe that everyone deserves access to quality healthcare services. It is with that in mind that we are proud to support Hospis Malaysia in helping Malaysians live their best lives till the very end,” said Mr. Alvin Yuan, Chief Executive Officer of HealthMetrics.
To mark the launch of this initiative, HealthMetrics hosted a Gala Night which took place at Glasshouse Seputeh. Director of Strategy and Communications at Hospis Malaysia, Ms. Tham Su Ming, was present to officiate the launch. With the support of valued clients, HealthMetrics will be donating a percentage of profits to Hospis Malaysia each quarter.
Also in attendance were Deputy Chairman of Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF), Dato’ Quah Thain Khan, representatives from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Estee Lauder, Berjaya Group and other HealthMetrics clients.
