MindChamps Holdings buys back its 49% equity from Singapore Medical Group and now holds 100% of MindChamps Medical to maintain its founder’s original vision
Singapore, 30 November 2015 – With the completion of the equity buy back from Singapore Medical Group, MindChamps will now focus on establishing its presence in the healthcare sector on its own by setting up child-friendly and family oriented private general practitioner clinics that will be operated and franchised under the MindChamps Medical Clinic brand name. The first MindChamps Medical Clinic has opened in OneKM Mall since October 2015.
In partnership with Samsung, MindChamps will make available its proprietary eLearning Books which are uploaded onto Samsung Tab S units. These units will be placed at a dedicated kids’ interactive area located within all MindChamps Medical Clinics. Parents and their children could view the eLearning Books, which contains engaging stories, songs and phonics activities that would allow them to engage in learning in a fun and interactive way, especially whilst they await to see the doctor.
MindChamps founder, Group CEO and Chairman, Mr David Chiem, said: “The opening of our first MindChamps Medical Clinic in OneKM Mall marks an important milestone for us in realising our vision to help families achieve medical wellness through education. We will be opening our next clinic in Tiong Bahru Plaza in the first quarter of 2016 and more clinics later in the year.”
