Cairo, Egypt: Global Medical City (GMC), the pioneer of a new 360° health and wellness concept in Egypt, has launched a new comprehensive women’s wellness center at its integrated medical facility. As GMC continues to introduce innovative therapies and services to meet the diverse needs of patients, the Women’s Wellness Center serves as a full-fledged facility dedicated to supporting the early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, including disease detection, prediction and prevention.
The importance of the new center is underscored by the fact that breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women, accounting for 38.8% of cancers in the population, with breast cancer cases estimated at 22,700 in 2020 Early diagnosis and screening are the two main components of early cancer detection programs, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), to reduce the incidence of advanced cancers.[i].

“Current health systems focus on disease management (disease care) rather than prevention and wellness, which I believe is real health care. Through our initiative, GMC aims to bring the concept of wellness to the forefront of women’s healthcare,” said Dr. Mohamed Ayyad, CEO of Global Medical City. “Our multidisciplinary team of specialist and renowned healthcare professionals come together in our Women’s Wellness Center to predict individual predispositions before the onset of disease. Our three-phase program allows us to provide targeted preventative measures while creating personalized treatment plans to ensure women have access to improvements in their well-being, better health control and increased vitality, all tailored to meet their specific needs.”
“Serious chronic diseases are often treated after the onset of the disease. Proactively, the Women’s Wellness Center adheres to four pillars of optimal health care: medical screening, reporting, treatment programs and monitoring,” said Dr Ahmed Hassan, Head of Oncology at Global Medical City and member of the Presidential Women’s Health Initiative. He went on to say, “We hope that by bringing together the Women’s Wellness Centre, our MDT and our all-in-one medical center, we will usher in a new, more patient-centric approach to healthcare for women in Egypt. GMC will serve as an excellent example of best healthcare practices for future centers to open in Egypt, ultimately supporting the future health of the entire community.
