Led by renowned hepatobiliary expert and liver transplant surgeon Dr Tan Kai Chah, AAMG was first established as a liver centre, formerly known as Asian Centre for Liver Diseases and Transplantation (ACLDT). This followed the Group’s strategic collaboration in 2012 with US-based global health enterprise UPMC and a re-branding exercise.

UPMC is No. 12 on the prestigious U.S. News & World Report annual Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals and is ranked nationally in 15 specialties. UPMC’s world-renowned excellence is evident through its transplantation and radiation oncology programs. Since 1981, UPMC has performed more than 17,000 organ transplants, and its role as a pioneer in solid organ transplantation has allowed UPMC to develop extensive clinical expertise in the field, giving hope to patients across the world.
In addition to transplantation services, UPMC Cancer Center provides high-quality care to 74,000 patients treated at its facilities each year. UPMC’s Radiation Oncology Department works with its affiliate the University of Pittsburgh to translate novel research discoveries to advanced treatments and educates radiation oncologists worldwide to continue its mission of providing the highest level of clinical care possible to cancer patients. The Radiation Oncology Program of UPMC Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO). As the largest ACRO accredited system in the United States, the Radiation Oncology Program is committed to providing the highest quality in radiation oncology care.
In early 2014, AALC’s doctors have commenced surgical procedures at iHEAL Medical Centre in Malaysia’s capital city Kuala Lumpur. The Group has also established a presence Myanmar, through a partnership with Pinlon Hospital and 30th Street Clinic to establish Myanmar’s first holistic liver centre – Pinlon Liver Centre.
The Asian American Radiation Oncology is currently providing advisory and management services in Myanmar and Russia and presently pursing other opportunities in the region.
