Universiti Malaya (UM) has achieved yet another milestone when It was chosen to set up a fertility centre, thanks to the partnership by Mexter Technology Bhd.

The IT company said they will now work with the varsity to establish the centre to promote, develop and market the latter’s fertility and other medical services.

The collaboration, which will be done through its wholly-owned subsidiary, LYC Medicare Sdn Bhd (LYCM) and UM’s Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), will see the setting up of LYC Fertility Centre.

In a statement, Mexter said both parties have agreed to collaborate with each other to market UMMC’s fertility and other medical services via LYCM’s establishment of LYC Fertility Centre, a service provider to cater to high-end fertility patients.

This effort also aims to promote medical tourism for international patients.

Mexter first infiltrated the health industry when it set up its first mother-and-child centre called the LYC Mother & Child Centre in Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur in March this year.
