MANILA, Philippines — Ayala-led Healthway Cancer Care Center (HCCC) has partnered with Siemens Healthineers, the leading provider in healthcare systems, as it prepares for the opening of its 100-bed cancer facility within the ARCA South in mid-2023.

The partnership with Siemens Healthineers, which will provide technical expertise and technologies in diagnostic and therapeutic imaging, further strengthens the cancer hospital’s vision of providing quality, accessible and affordable cancer services to a broader base of Filipinos.

AC Health president and CEO Paolo Borromeo said cancer-specific technologies play a vital role in detection, intervention, and monitoring, and can transform the quality of cancer care received by patients.

“Siemens Healthineers have always delivered patient-centered solutions to its clients, which in turn, result in better patient outcomes and experiences. Redefining the oncology landscape through better patient care is a common vision between AC Health and Siemens Healthineers, and we are proud to partner with them in realizing this vision,” Borromeo said.

Construction of the building is already underway. Once completed, it will be the first comprehensive cancer specialty hospital in the country, where end-to-end oncology services can be availed of by patients, proponents said.

“As AC Health builds the first cancer specialty hospital in the country with the Healthway Cancer Care Center, we can provide patients better quality of life through breakthrough innovations as we support healthcare professionals in delivering precision and high-quality care,” said Juan Miguel Tan, president and managing director of Siemens Healthineers Philippines.

AC Health is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ayala Corp. and serves as the portfolio company for healthcare businesses.

Its vision is to build an ecosystem that links every patient to a seamless healthcare experience.

At present, its portfolio includes Generika Drugstore, the pioneer in generic retail drugstores, IE Medica and MedEthix, major pharmaceutical importer and distributor, Healthway, a network of primary care, multi-specialty, and corporate clinics, and QualiMed, a comprehensive network of full-service hospitals, multi- specialty clinics, and a stand-alone day surgery center.

AC Health has also invested in health technology solutions, most recently, HealthNow, a healthcare aggregator app that offers online consultations, medicine delivery, and clinic and diagnostic booking.
