Women in Hong Kong play important roles in society, the workplace, and at home. Amidst balancing their responsibilities and striving for excellence, they tend to overlook their health by skipping routine check-ups and failing to respond to concerning symptoms in their bodies. Government statistics indicate a rising trend in newly diagnosed cancer cases among women, surpassing men for the first time in 2020[1]. This highlights the urgent need for society to address women’s health challenges, calling for collaborative efforts to raise women’s awareness about preventative healthcare, regular check-ups, and the value of healthy living.

To promote early diagnosis and timely treatment for women, AXA has partnered with FemWell, a female health brand owned by Chiron Medical, to launch the “AXA Women’s Health Centre” in the bustling heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. This cutting-edge facility provides a full range of women’s health services, including general practice, obstetrics and gynaecology, clinical oncology, general surgery, and consultations with clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, nutritionists, and chiropractors, all overseen by a female medical team. A professional case manager will be assigned to follow up on individual needs, from organising appointments and examinations to administering treatment and rehabilitation care, assuring continuous assistance throughout the process.

The “AXA Women’s Health Centre” breaks away from traditional clinic styles and places a strong emphasis on being “thoughtful, friendly and reliable”. The Centre’s inviting and soothing interior creates a comfortable and reassuring environment for visitors, reducing their nervousness or anxiety during medical visits. The dedicated changing rooms, exclusive waiting areas, consulting rooms and imaging screening rooms ensure high privacy and comfort during the examination and consultation procedures.  

Emily Li, Chief Employee Benefits and Wellness Officer at AXA Hong Kong and Macau, said, “I am excited to the official launch of the ‘AXA Women’s Health Centre’ in partnership with FemWell, a female health brand under Chiron Medical, in celebration of today’s International Women’s Day. This initiative aims to raise awareness of women’s health and provide more comfortable, high-quality services tailored to their unique needs. AXA has always remained our commitment to supporting women’s health. Last year, we successfully introduced the innovative ‘Better She’ health management programme[2] in Hong Kong, specifically designed for women. This programme integrates gynaecological services and preventive treatment from both Traditional Chinese and Western medicines to improve women’s physical and mental well-being, thereby reducing the risk of critical gynecological disease in the future. The opening of the Centre for today marks another significant milestone in our dedication to women’s health. Leveraging the strengths of AXA and Chiron Medical, we provide comprehensive medical and holistic healthcare to women throughout their health journey, empowering them to prioritise early prevention, early detection, and early treatment.”

Wallace Wong, Managing Director at Chiron Medical Group, said, “I’m honoured to announce the launch of the Centre today through the partnership with AXA and our FemWell, the female health brand under Chiron Medical. With our group’s “people-oriented” philosophy at the core, FemWell takes a comprehensive approach to support women’s health, guided by a team of female experts. The Centre adheres to “Illness treatment” and “Wellness management” principles while embracing a refreshing concept of ultimate comfort. Placing our customers’ health at the forefront, we provide personalised health experiences that cater to women’s unique needs. As the first phase of FemWell’s development under Chiron Medical, the Centre represents a significant milestone. We will actively explore further collaborations that share our vision of promoting women’s holistic well-being within the healthcare ecosystem. Our goal is to take a customer-driven approach to deliver mental and physical health services and more educational resources, empowering women to proactively improve their overall well-being.”
