On Monday, Ayala Healthcare Holdings Inc. (AC Health) officially unveiled QualiMed Iloilo’s new name and signage – Healthway QualiMed Hospital Iloilo.

On the same day, Healthway also launched its Women’s Center, with its flagship facility – the Iloilo Fertility and Reproductive Care Center (IFER). Women’s Health is one of the priority programs under Healthway’s Connected Care Circles, which offer a unique model of integrated multi-disciplinary team care based on global best practices. The Healthway Women’s Health program was developed with the support of I.E.

The first of its kind in Western Visayas, IFER serves as the hub for fertility and reproductive needs of women and families. It is a one-stop shop, offering advanced diagnostics and interventions, including intrauterine insemination, in-vitro fertilization fertility banking.
