MANILA - A new St. Luke's Medical Center is set to rise in Aseana City in Parañaque, property developer DM Wenceslao and Associates Inc. (DMW) said on Tuesday.
DMW said it signed a memorandum of understanding with St. Luke's to enter into a 50-year lease agreement for a 13,896-square meter parcel of land in Aseana City.
“The signing of this agreement with the country’s leading healthcare institution achieves another important milestone towards the development of Aseana City. It will accelerate our ability to deliver a complete community in our next generation city development,” said company CEO Delfin Wenceslao.
St. Luke’s currently has 2 main hospitals in Quezon City and Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. It also operates an extension clinic in Manila.
“We see a compelling opportunity for St. Luke’s Medical Center to expand and scale operations to respond to our customers' needs,” said Dr. Arturo De La Peña, president and CEO of St. Luke’s.
De la Peña said Aseana City gives them access to all terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and the rapidly growing population centers south of Metro Manila.
