AC Health celebrates 4th anniversary with cancer patients

Ayala Corporation volunteers and Kythe Foundation members gathered together with cancer patients and their families to celebrate Ayala Healthcare’s 4th anniversary

In celebration of its 4th anniversary this July, Ayala Healthcare Holdings, Inc. (AC Health) launched Soar, a community family day for children diagnosed with cancer. The anniversary activity was held on July 13, 2019 at the Amoranto Sports Complex in Quezon City.

AC Health has partnered with Kythe Foundation, a non-government organization, which provides Child Life services and psychosocial support to children with chronic illnesses.

Over 500 participants, including 60 cancer patients and their families, and volunteers from the Ayala group came together for an afternoon of kite flying, games, and entertainment performances.

AC Health President and CEO, Paolo Borromeo, said that the anniversary activity aims to encourage volunteerism across the Ayala group in support of AC Health’s vision of expanding access to healthcare.

“Cancer treatment is difficult for many Filipinos, and in this event, we want to take the time to celebrate family and community amidst such difficulties. It is also our way of connecting with patients and their families, so that we can make sure our cancer hospital is responsive to their needs.” Borromeo said.   

Last month, AC Health announced its plan to build a 100-bed, comprehensive cancer hospital in Metro Manila, with the goal of providing high-quality cancer care services, at a more affordable price. Cancer is now the third leading cause of death in the Philippines.

Soar is also in line with Ayala Corporation’s 185th year celebration.

Fast-growing companies make Parkway Corporate Center their HQ in the Metro South

Location, financial advantages, and investment potentials are but some of the factors business owners and entrepreneurs consider when finding the ideal corporate headquarters in the metro.

This is why start-ups, growing companies, and even established firms have moved to or are considering the 32-story Parkway Corporate Center in Filinvest City, Alabang. Owning the property gives business owners the freedom to tailor fit their office space to their needs and spending plans, resulting in cost-efficiency and savings over time.

And with Parkway Corporate Center’s strategic location in the booming Metro South, handsome returns on investment is also guaranteed.

The state-of-the-art, green-oriented office tower offers investors units in a most dynamic environment, while helping address the growing demand for office spaces in the metro. As such, companies and businesses that demand par excellence such as architectural offices, financial houses, and law firms are turning to Parkway Corporate Center.

One such enterprise is the dynamic abaca pulp and paper concern TYC Trading & Manufacturing Philippines, which is now establishing its new corporate headquarters at the future-ready office tower. It is one of the companies that appreciate style, quality, and location and understands how an office space is a reflection of one’s brand, identity, and reputation.

“At first, we were wondering if it was a good move to uproot our operations in Makati and move to the South,” says TYC Trading president Anna Marie de Chavez. “But after considering the congestion, traffic, and even incidents of flooding in Makati, we thought it best to seek greener pastures in Alabang.”

TYC and several other locators have started fitting out their intelligent office units—ranging from a flexible 36 square meters to a full floor—and expect to enjoy soon the features and amenities that make Parkway Corporate Center truly world-class.

Parkway Corporate Center is at a prime, strategic, and prestigious setting, Filinvest City, where a full spectrum of offerings—from premium lifestyle and retail facilities, to one-of-a-kind residential concepts—are within easy reach for a genuine live-work-play environment.

Even better, land values at Filinvest City have reached P230,000 per square meter, representing a 300 percent growth since 2012. And since land values are constantly on the rise, there is also a remarkable upsurge in office space rent, making it more advisable to invest in your own space at this point. Coupled with its ready and growing labor pool, more and more companies—both local and international—have been opting for Filinvest City, the economic center in the Metro South. Similarly, Parkway Corporate Center buyers are enjoying a 24 percent increase in property values since they bought spaces in 2014. It is projected to rise even further as Filinvest City continuously boosts its growth with the deliberate execution of its enhanced masterplan and as demand for office space increases as well.

Parkway Corporate Center, being located at the so-called Millionaire’s Row of Filinvest City, enjoys a thriving, fully-integrated and self-contained 244-hectare metropolis that harmonizes modern conveniences and nature for a refreshingly different atmosphere.

It is extremely accessible, being close to the efficient public transportation hub South Station. Going to the North and to CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas Rizal and Quezon) area where factories are situated is quick through the South Luzon Expressway and Daang Hari Road. Even the Ninoy Aquino International Airport is just 10 kilometers away.

This office tower is the result of intelligent space planning. Modern building facilities are standard such as six high-speed elevators, 24-hour security with CCTV cameras in strategic areas, 100 percent back-up power and advanced fiber optic backbone. The VRF air-conditioning system provides consistent cooling comfort, quiet operation, and utmost energy efficiency. Double-glazed low-e glass helps protect against the harmful ultra-violet radiation while reflecting heat back to ensure that the interior temperature remains constant and helps in energy efficiency.

“Though we’re located in a business zone, there’s still a feeling of balance and nature. What we particularly like about this development is that our office faces Laguna de Bay, which is very energizing,” says Chavez.

An elegant main lobby, retail plaza on the ground floor, fully-equipped business center at the 7th level, podium deck garden, pocket gardens at every five levels, plus eight levels of secured parking are among Parkway Corporate Center’s impressive amenities.  

Indeed, businesses thinking of transferring their headquarters to Metro South should set their sights on Parkway Corporate Center and make the smart move now. With its features and amenities and the investment potentials it offers, it is the most ideal office development in the Metro South bar none.
