Waqaf An-Nur Hospital & Clinics

Waqaf An-Nur Hospital & Clinics

JCorp via WANCorp in cooperation with State Islamic Councils and support from KPJ Healthcare Berhad developed and managed 20 Waqaf An-Nur Clinics (KWAN) besides one Waqaf An-Nur Hospital (HWAN) at Pasir Gudang and two mobile clinics on the fundamental of charity through waqaf concept’s adaptation.

The main objective of KWAN and HWAN’s establishments is to provide healthcare treatment and dialysis facilities to the general public particularly the deserving, regardless of ethnicity and religion.

Apart from Johor, KWANs are also built in Negeri Sembilan, Selangor, Perak, Sarawak and Penang that are developed with cooperation from the respective state’s Islamic council. Beginning October 2011, KWAN Kotaraya has been temporarily closed for operation following the renovation works of Plaza Kotaraya Complex (now known as Galleria@ Kotaraya) and the dialysis patients were moved to Pasir Gudang Dialysis Centre.

Until June 2014, a total of 1,001,115 treatments were discharged to the patients in the chain of KWAN and out of that portion, 73,542 treatments were given to the non-Muslim patients. The total number of patients with kidney failures which have been receiving dialysis treatments in HWAN and five KWANs are now 124.

HWAN and chain of KWANs are not only providing healthcare treatment on the nominal charge of RM5 inclusive of medication, yet offering dialysis treatment with the subsidised rate to the deserving. Patients also receive financial support from Baitulmal, PERKESO and various welfare agencies entitling them to free treatments.

The year 2013 witnessed the officiation of KWAN Taman Bukit Tiram which was concluded by YAB Dato’ Mohamed Khaled bin Nordin, Chief Minister of Johor on 14 December 2013. In conjunction with the ceremony, WANCorp contributed RM259,000 for the purchase of seven units of dialysis machines whereby three of them located at KWAN Bukit Tiram Dialysis Centre and four others at HWAN Pasir Gudang.

A number of proposed new KWANs are underway in 2014. Among the identified locations being Port Klang, Kajang and Batu Caves in Selangor, Rembau (Negeri Sembilan), Pengkalan Pegoh (Perak), Seberang Jaya (Pulau Pinang) and Tumpat (Kelantan).
