Planned expansion into Asia
 
Genesis Healthcare has built the largest private genetic databases comprising the Japanese population in East Asia, mainly eight Asian countries and regions (Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam), since 2015. Given that demand for its genetic testing services has drastically increased in the last several years from neighboring Asian countries and regions, Genesis Healthcare Asia Pte. Ltd. will serve as the hub in Asia to offer its proprietary genetic research and genetic testing services across Asia in the areas of clinical and consumer testing.
