Healthway Cancer Care Hospital (HCCH), the country’s first dedicated cancer facility owned by Ayala-led AC Health, is strengthening its cancer care via partnership with National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS).

Under the joint venture partnership, specialists from HCCH and NCCS will discuss complex cancer cases and collaborate using their expertise in imaging, radiation, surgery, medical oncology and palliative care as well as explore suitable clinical trial options for all aspects of patient care and planning.

“We are fortunate to have the National Cancer Centre Singapore join us in this journey of our cancer hospital. This partnership with NCCS supports our vision of delivering quality care at global standards through open discussions on complex cases and sharing of best practices between our healthcare team and theirs,” said HCCH chief operating officer Jenara Rosanna Ong in a statement.

NCCS is a leading national and tertiary cancer center that offers holistic and multidisciplinary oncology care.

It is also home to Singapore’s largest number of researchers, surgeons and oncologists who share their depth of experience and expertise by training local and overseas medical professionals and conduct robust, cutting-edge clinical and translational research to improve patient outcomes.

“We are excited to embark on this partnership which aims to contribute to Healthway Cancer Care Hospital’s goal of providing the best possible cancer care to its patients. We also look forward to opportunities for mutual learning and exchange of best practices with our counterparts at HCCH to advance cancer care,” said NCCS deputy chief executive Prof. Toh Han Chong.

HCCH, opened in November 2023, is a 100-bed hospital facility located in Arca South, Taguig City. It provides patients with comprehensive care throughout their cancer journey, from screening and diagnostics to treatment.

Its vision is to provide accessible and quality cancer services to more Filipinos.
