Buyout firm Affinity Equity Partners is weighing the sale of Island Hospital, a hospital in Penang, Malaysia.

It is currently working with an adviser to explore the potential sale of the facility, reported Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter.

If a deal materialises, the sale could fetch $500m to $1bn.

In 2015, Affinity Partners acquired the hospital for an undisclosed amount.

Currently, the divestment plan is at an early stage and might not lead to a successful transaction, according to the sources.

Set up in 1996, the hospital has 300 beds and over 50 full-time specialists. The hospital treats more than 300,000 patients annually.
