Since inaugurating its first hospital in Lippo Village in Jakarta nearly ten years ago, Siloam Hospitals Group has become the largest and fastest-growing medical and health care provider in Indonesia.
Already operating 15 hospitals across the country and with 10 more in the drawing board, Siloam Hospitals will further extend its reach and provide more accessible health care with the opening of so-called Siloam Express clinics in shopping malls.
President Director Romeo Lledo said: “We are now setting up hospitals in the malls and we’re going to call them the Siloam Express. We will start implementing it this year.”
The privately-owned group is looking at opening the first four Siloam Express clinics in the country’s busiest cities and most popular destinations, such as Bali, which attracts a high number of Australians and visitors from elsewhere in the region.
The group’s flagship facility – Siloam Hospital Lippo Village – received its certification from health care accreditation body Joint Commission International in 2007, and has partnerships with the Mochtar Riady Institute of Nanotechnology and Universitas Pelita Harapan Faculty of Medicine and School of Nursing.
By 2017, Siloam Hospitals wants to operate more than 50 hospitals and open more healthcare facilities in 35 cities across the country. To date, it has 1,800 doctors, including 1,400 specialists, and 4,400 registered nurses.
President Director Romeo Lledo said: “The market and demand are huge. Although supply is still low, we still have a lot of foreign groups announcing their intention to come here.”
