Parkway Cancer Centre and CanHOPE
As we celebrate PCC’s 17th anniversary, it is important to remember where we started from, be it our goals, our vision, or our mission.
Parkway Cancer Centre was established in 2006 with a goal of spreading hope in the face of this consequential disease. The centre is home to a multidisciplinary team of highly skilled medical doctors, nurses, counsellors, dietitians, and other paramedical professionals.
With 9 clinics across Singapore and more than 15 major cities around the region, PCC has grown into a substantial establishment that is fully equipped to join the battle against cancer and provide hope to all those affected.
Over the years, PCC has been utilising the latest advances in medical research and technology to provide optimal care to its patients. From immunotherapy to targeted therapy, PCC strives to offer the most appropriate solution to its patients, including optimal treatment outcomes and better cancer care.
PCC’s non-profit cancer counselling and support arm, CanHOPE, offers patients psychosocial support wherever they are in the world. CanHOPE aims to support, empower, and inspire hope by providing access to resources and holistic care to those on their cancer journey.
From cancer rehabilitation to palliative care, CanHOPE ensures that its patients and their loved ones are fully supported with its comprehensive range of services. The non-profit organisation also has awareness and outreach programmes to help spread awareness and advocate for early detection through educational opportunities.
Towards a hopeful future
As PCC goes into its 17th year, it will continue to provide a comprehensive and integrated premier cancer service with utmost care, comfort, and compassion, all while being patient-focused. Hope will continue to remain as PCC’s guiding principle as it aspires to instil hope in its patients while giving them the optimal treatment they deserve.
With a team of highly-skilled professionals and state-of-the-art facilities, PCC will continue to make significant strides in the ongoing fight against cancer.
