Holistic care-based home nursing services also are available for patients recently discharged and who are staying within a 10-kilometer (six-mile) radius of the hospital. The accident, emergency, and outpatient services operate 24/7 and are manned by a medical officer and teams of experienced nurses and aides.
In 2006, KPJ Damansara opened an obesity specialty center, the first of its kind in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, dedicated to helping seriously obese patients through surgical and nonsurgical procedures.
