KPJ Healthcare Partners with Pine Labs to offer Patients Instalment Payment Plans
KPJ Healthcare Berhad has entered into a collaboration with Pine Labs, a leading merchant commerce omnichannel platform, to offer flexible payment options for its patients. This also marks the first of its kind service to be offered at hospitals across Malaysia.
“Pine Labs’ thriving network of banking partners, which includes key banks in Malaysia, presents us with an extensive reach and ensures our patients across Malaysia can enjoy this new payment option.

Through the collaboration, payments for KPJ Healthcare’s medical services can be made at Pine Labs’ point-of-sale terminals located at the hospital’s payment counters, via debit or credit card. The Pine Labs platform provides a unique option of converting the payment into a zero-interest instalment plan through its extensive network of 14 banking partners.
