Ayala Healthcare Holdings Inc. launches Healthway Medical Network, marking the integration of all its hospitals and clinics under the Healthway brand. With the promise to deliver “Care Beyond Cure,” HMN aims to create a comprehensive patient journey across all its touchpoints, focusing on holistic and patient-centric healthcare.

The new identity of AC Health’s hospitals and clinics group was announced last 8 May at the ceremonial signage lighting of Healthway QualiMed Sta. Rosa. It was attended by executives from Ayala Corporation, AC Health and HMN, as well as local government officials, representatives from various sectors of the community and existing patrons of QualiMed Sta. Rosa.

“At Healthway, we believe that care beyond cure is not simply an empty slogan, but a guiding principle,” said Jimmy Ysmael, president and chief executive officer of HMN. “We understand that our patients are more than just a set of symptoms or a medical condition. They are people with unique stories, experiences and emotions. Through the integration of our clinics and hospitals, we will strive to provide the highest quality of care, focusing on treating the whole person, not just the illness.”

During the event’s round table discussion, Dr. Rizzy Alejandro, AC Health chief public health officer and QualiMed Manila chief operating officer, shared how Healthway plans to deliver on its brand promise through its “Connected Care Circles.”

“We want to provide holistic care to our patients, and this is where ‘Connected Care Circles’ come in,” explained Dr. Alejandro. “Our goal is to provide seamless care from one point to another, regardless of where the patient is in their healthcare journey.”

Aside from HMN, AC Health’s subsidiaries include Generika Drugstore, IE Medica and MedEthix and KonsultaMD in partnership with Globe’s 917 Ventures.

“When AC Health was founded in 2015, our vision was to build and connect various businesses into an integrated ecosystem that would allow us to address fundamental gaps in Philippine healthcare,” said Paolo Borromeo, president and CEO of AC Health.

“Healthway Medical Network remains a crucial component of this ecosystem and AC Health will continue to explore even more opportunities to drive synergies within our network, offering a differentiated experience for our Healthway doctors, employees, and of course our patients.”

In 2022, the network successfully inaugurated three new multispecialty centers. This year, HMN plans to open three additional clinics in Cebu, Cagayan de Oro and Davao, expanding its network to a total of 15 outpatient centers. Apart from this, the long-awaited Healthway Cancer Care Hospital, the first of its kind in the country, is also set to open in September 2023.

Present at the event was Ayala Corporation’s Fernando Zobel de Ayala, who reaffirmed the group’s commitment to continue investing in healthcare. “The integration and launch of the HMN and its promise to deliver care beyond cure exemplifies Ayala’s relentless pursuit of excellence in its unwavering commitment to nation-building,” said Zobel. “At Ayala, we believe that every Filipino deserves access to quality healthcare and we are committed to help make this a reality.”
