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 councils. Currently, three new clinics are being constructed in the premises of Masjid Al-Ismaili at Pasir Pekan, Tumpat, Kelantan; Masjid Bandar Baru Sultan Suleiman at Pelabuhan Klang (Selangor) and Masjid Jamek Rembau, Negeri Sembilan (this clinic is being constructed in order to replace the existing premise which is operating in a container). The constructions of new KWANs are initiatives to broaden the chain of KWAN’s role across the nation. The respective new clinics are expected to commence operation in 2015.
In August 2014, KWAN Kotaraya which has been temporarily closed for operation since 2011 following the renovation works of Plaza Kotaraya (now known as Galleria@Kotaraya) had been re-opened to public.
Until 31 March 2015, over 1 million treatments were discharged to the patients in the chain of KWAN. Out of that portion, over 80,000 treatments were extended to non-Muslim patients.
HWAN and chain of KWANs are not only providing healthcare treatments on a 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.
