We are a group of doctors providing tertiary healthcare services in the fields of medical oncology and palliative care to the oncology patients in the private sector in Singapore through Parkway Cancer Centre (PCC). Tertiary healthcare involves specialised care of a high complexity requiring specialised skills, personnel and support services. We have specialists with special interests in breast cancers, head and neck cancers, gastro-intestinal cancers, uro-gynaecological cancers, and haematology malignancies.
Our clinical functions include attending to patients, examination and administering medical treatment to patients and performing minor outpatient surgical procedures, prescribing medicines and investigations such as laboratory tests or diagnostic procedures. These clinical functions also include the review of investigation results and follow-up care with the patient. We also coordinate the overall care-plan for cancer patients by liaising with other medical professionals including surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, physicians and para-medical professionals.
Our Group has a patient-oriented focus and a philosophy of providing personalised, caring and consistent medical care. The high quality of medical skills possessed by our specialists allows Singapore Cancer Centre (SCC) to handle more of the complex clinical cases. We are often called upon to render second opinions on patients and take on treatment for those who have failed prior treatments.
Our medical oncology practice has an established track record of more than 15 years. Our palliative medical team works together with the rest of our doctors to provide an extra layer of support for cancer care so as to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family. We believe that we have a team of reputable doctors and healthcare professionals who believe in maintaining the highest quality of medical excellence in administering oncology healthcare services and palliative care services to our patients. We intend to continue to attract such like-minded professionals to join us in our vision of providing quality medical oncology services and palliative care services and expand our healthcare network within Singapore and around the region.
Within the next two to three years, we intend to expand our services to include the provision of surgical healthcare, development of cellular and target therapy for haematological as well as oncology patients. We intend to extend our market reach to markets in the region where there is an increasing demand for quality and personalized medical oncology services and palliative care services.
Our Group has established itself as one of the market leaders in medical tourism in Singapore. Foreign patients account for more than 60% of our patient-load in the past few years, with the majority of our patients hailing from regional countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam.
Our Group currently provides medical oncology services and palliative care services with 12 doctors at seven clinics in Gleneagles Hospital Singapore, Mount Elizabeth Hospital Singapore, Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre and Mouth Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre Singapore, which are hospitals operated by Parkway Hospital Singapore Pte Ltd (PHSPL).
Presently, our main business activity is the provision of medical oncology services through PCC. The oncology services provided by us through SCC and the PCC vehicle are complemented by the palliative care provided by us, which are also elaborated below.
