To fulfill the strong demand for aesthetic medical and beauty and wellness services provided by the Group in Mainland China, in July 2022, the Group has opened two new service points in Shenzhen, with an aggregate newly leased gross floor area of approximately 12,400 square feet. The Group’s total number of service points in Mainland China increased to 18.
Benefiting from the strong demand for medical services provided by the Group and as the impact of the fifth wave pandemic outbreak gradually fades, the overall consumption sentiment in Hong Kong improves with a full-fledged retail sector recovery.

Mr. Eddy Tang, Chairman, Executive Director, and Chief Executive Officer of EC Healthcare said, “Looking ahead, the Group is confident about the business performance given the gradual fading impact of the pandemic, the community immunity increased and the health consciousness rising. The Group is expected to operate the business in a stable market environment and the demand for medical services will remain momentum. As the leading healthcare services provider in Hong Kong, the Group will keep developing businesses through organic growth as well as mergers and acquisitions, leveraging our investment in information technology, branding, and service to enrich the closed-loop healthcare ecosystem and further consolidate the healthcare market.”
