Today, 3 November 2020, Icon Cancer Centre – Singapore alongside our partners at Mt Alvernia Hospital held a ground-breaking ceremony for the new state-of-the-art integrated cancer centre set to open in 2022. The $25 million facility will provide a holistic approach to cancer care, bringing together medical oncology, haematology and radiation oncology for adults and children, and will be a centre of excellence for the ongoing improvement of healthcare across the region.
Founded on Catholic values by the Sisters from the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM) in 1961, Mount Alvernia Hospital is a 305-bed, not-for-profit general acute care private hospital that has delivered quality healthcare to the local community for 58 years. With a mission of providing excellent and holistic healthcare, Mount Alvernia Hospital and Icon share the same patient-centred values, utilising the latest technologies and expert medical specialist teams to deliver the best care possible.
The new centre will offer a day oncology hospital delivering, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy, along with a single radiation therapy bunker, on-site PET-CT, pathology and pharmacy services.
