The headquarters will be headed by Icon Group Founding Chairman, Stuart Giles, who is relocating to Singapore as Founder and Chairman. Mr Giles describes the effects this will have on a global scale.
“Our move into China and Singapore marks a significant milestone not only for our company but more importantly for cancer patients. There is an acute need for advanced cancer care in Asia and I know our people, expertise and commitment to patients are second to none. Having headquarters in Singapore means we will have a base to develop and promote equitable access to cancer care across Asia,” said Mr Giles.
Earlier this year, Icon Group announced Singapore Oncology Consultants’ (SOC) incorporation into Icon Group as well as the newest function of Icon Group – Icon Plan. Icon Plan is a centralised, remote radiation therapy planning function for radiation oncology. Planning involves using the data obtained during the initial consultation with a radiation oncology patient, to plan how the machine will target and deliver radiation to a tumour.
