Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur launches Dr. Little Club
Kuala Lumpur, 23 March – Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur announced today the launch of Dr. Little Club, a membership programme designed to help parents bring out the best in their little ones. All babies born at the hospital are automatically enrolled as Dr. Little Club members while others can be registered via the Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur website.
Being part of Dr. Little Club opens up members to a host of benefits, including invitations to exclusive events as well as discounts on in-patient medication and accommodation. Special privileges are further available at partner brands such as Hamleys, Next, Mothercare, Gymboree, and Aquaria KLCC.
In addition to the perks reserved for children, parents can enjoy discounts on health screening packages at Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur. They can also access Parentpedia on the Dr. Little Club webpage for credible guidance and digestible information on the proper upbringing of their child.
Membership in Dr. Little Club is free and is open to children aged 12 years and below. In conjunction with the launch, 100 children had the opportunity to play doctor for a day and learned basic health tips in a fun manner.
The participants—aged between six and ten—were brought to experience different interactive stations around the hospital. Each one corresponded with a specific medical area, like hand hygiene, emergency procedure, bodily function, human anatomy, medicine safety, and even an ambulance tour.
Proceeds from the event’s registration fee will support Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur’s A-Heart for A-Heart corporate giving initiative, which provides free medical treatment to underprivileged children affected by congenital heart disease. More than 1,300 young patients have benefitted from the programme since its introduction in 1996.
Hoo Ling Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur, said, “Healthy living starts from young. By making positive wellness choices a part of their upbringing, these practices can become second nature to them and ensure the next generation can look forward to a thriving future. This is one way Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur is playing its part in building resilient communities.”
While the children immersed themselves in life behind the stethoscope, their parents attended an information session with consultant family medicine specialist Dr. Marieanne Sundram, who illustrated the fundamentals of child vaccination.
