AC Health cancer specialty hospital expected to open in Q3 23
Philippines’ first dedicated cancer hospital is over 75% complete.
The construction of Healthway Cancer Care Hospital, owned by Ayala Corporation (AC) Health, is over 75% finished and will soon offer a range of cancer treatment services.
In a statement, AC Health said the groundbreaking of the hospital began in 2021 and will open possibly two years later (third quarter of 2023).
Healthway Cancer Care Hospital will be the first dedicated cancer hospital in the Philippines, offering screening, prognosis, treatment, and post-cancer care.
AC Health will provide 18 chemotherapy infusion units, two linear accelerators, and essential diagnostic and imaging machines.
AC Health CEO Paolo Borromeo championed the collaboration of public and private hospitals to address what’s lacking in cancer care in the country.
“I am a big believer that the private and public sectors should work hand-in-hand towards improving oncology care here in the Philippines. In no other industry is collaboration more evident than in healthcare, as we saw firsthand during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Borromeo, in the same statement.
