AC Healthcare Holdings Inc. (AC Health), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ayala Corp., is on track to complete its P2-billion cancer hospital in Taguig City.
AC Health said in a statement Tuesday it recently topped the 100-bed Healthway Cancer Care Hospital, which is scheduled for completion by the middle of next year.
AC Health president and chief executive Paolo Borromeo said the first major cancer equipment will be delivered to the site by the end of the year.
The Healthway Cancer Care Hospital is part of Ayala Group’s P10-billion healthcare investment. It will offer a complete range of services from screening, diagnosis and treatment to post-cancer care. It will be equipped with chemotherapy chairs, operating theaters and state of the art diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, optimized for cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment.
AC Health in August signed a value partnership with Siemens Healthineers, the leading provider in healthcare systems.
The tie-up, which will provide the 100-bed cancer hospital with technical expertise and technologies in diagnostic and therapeutic imaging, further strengthens the hospital’s vision of providing quality, accessible and affordable cancer services to a broader base of Filipinos.
AC Health also has partnered with Varian-CTSI, which provides clinical services and solutions to over 100 hospitals, clinics and physician groups worldwide, in ensuring delivery of affordable yet high standards of cancer care in the country
“A year ago, we were gathered on this same site to break ground for our shared vision of providing quality oncology care to more Filipinos. Today, we mark another milestone with this topping off ceremony, as we near this goal,” said Borromeo.
“We are excited to see the plans for the hospital come to fruition and are incredibly thankful for the tremendous support we are receiving from more and more medical practitioners, patients, and communities,” he added.
With the addition of Healthway Cancer Care Center, AC Health expands its healthcare portfolio along with Healthway Clinics, Qualimed Hospitals, Generika Drugstores, IE Medica and MedEthix and the HealthNow mobile app.
AC Health aims to build an ecosystem that links every patient to a seamless healthcare experience.
