The Taguig City government has partnered with Healthway Cancer Care Hospital (HCCH), the country’s first comprehensive cancer specialty facility, to improve the city’s healthcare access for indigent cancer patients.

Under the agreement signed at the HCCH located in Arca South, Barangay Western Bicutan, the hospital will offer a range of cancer-related services and treatment modalities like laboratory tests, radiology, nuclear medicine, and outpatient nursing services at discounted rates to beneficiaries referred by the local government unit. 

AC Health’s president and CEO, Paolo Borromeo, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership and commended Mayor Laarni Cayetano for her commitment to the health and well-being of Taguigeños.

“Mayor Lani, your leadership and vision for a healthier Taguig have been instrumental in bringing this partnership to fruition. Your dedication to improving healthcare access for your constituents resonates deeply with our mission at AC Health. So even outside of this agreement, we have already seen the tireless efforts and passion that your team brings for healthcare and it’s inspiring to witness the positive changes you continue to champion for the city,” Borromeo said.

Mayor Cayetano also thanked Healthway Cancer Care Hospital for the partnership adding that the tie-up was aligned with her vision of a transformative, lively, and caring city. 

“This will grant us access to the latest medical technologies and specialized expertise right here in our community. Ang mga tao hindi na lalayo pa dahil nandito na sa aming lungsod. Malapit sa aming mga kababayan ang access sa quality health services. All of these add up to better outcomes for patients and a higher quality of life for everyone in our City,” she said.

The city chief executive recalled attending the inauguration of the first dedicated cancer hospital in the Philippines in November 2023 with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
