The idea of setting up CRC Ampang was initiated in Year 2007. Dr Ong Tee Chuan was appointed to head the centre in 2008. Dr Sia Koon Ket replaced him in 2010. Even though CRC Ampang is still in its infancy, it has grown to become an efficient and accountable centre to conduct quality and ethical research in order to enhance patient outcome.
CRC Ampang Hospital is located in Specialist Office, Level 3, next to the reception counter. It has 5 computers and its local network system has been upgraded to improve research activities through NMRR registration.
