JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - PT Sarana Meditama Metropolitan Tbk (IDX:SAME), the operator of OMNI Hospitals, is optimistic that the company's revenues for this year will grow around 22% to 26%. The company obtained revenues of IDR 952 billion in 2018.

OMNI Hospitals Director Surina said that the company's revenue this year will still be supported by several hospitals that the company owns, among them the largest from OMNI Hospitals Pulomas, and Alam Sutera.
