Ayalas start building P2B cancer treatment center

The Ayala Group has broken ground on the Philippines’ first dedicated specialty cancer hospital as part of efforts to elevate cancer care in the country.

Located at the FTI Complex in Taguig City, the 100-bed facility dubbed Healthway Cancer Care Center is targeted for completion by July 2023.

It was in response to the rising cancer cases in the country.

In 2020 alone, over 150,000 cancer cases were recorded in the country while 90,000 Filipinos succumbed to the dreaded disease.

The dedicated cancer hospital offers a complete range of cancer services from screening, diagnosis, treatment to post-cancer care.

AC Health has partnered with Varian-CTSI, which provides clinical services and solutions to over 100 hospitals, clinics, and physician groups worldwide, to ensure delivery of affordable yet high standards of cancer care in the country.

“Cancer is a critical public health problem with an enormous impact on patients, the families, and the healthcare system at large. There is an urgent need to develop sustainable solutions. We need to increase awareness of the disease through patient education, improve the timeliness of diagnosis through rigorous screening programs, and minimize out-of-pocket cancer expenses through affordable cancer care,” said Fernando Zobel de Ayala, chairman of AC Health.
