Hong Kong, 15 August 2017 – FWD today revealed its partnership with top-notched medical networks in Pan-Asia, launching the market’s first Pan-Asian one-stop health management service - the PREMIER THE ONEcierge One Team Health Management (“PREMIER THE ONEcierge”) for its customers of TheOne Medical Solution.
As an exclusive, value-added service of high-end medical insurance, TheOne Medical Solution, PREMIER THE ONEcierge provides customers with hassle-free access to advanced treatment options through a vast network of over 130 top-tier hospitals in the Pan-Asian region including Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore and Japan.
Paul Tse, Chief Marketing Officer of FWD Hong Kong and Macau, explained, “What PREMIER THE ONEcierge offers goes far beyond traditional insurance; it is more of a one-stop, Pan-Asian health management solution. In April 2015, we firstly launched THE ONEcierge One Team Health Management, which has been of invaluable help to our insured customers with its hassle-free service that admits patients promptly to private hospitals in Hong Kong for professional treatments. Expanding the service’s network from Hong Kong to many more hospitals throughout the Pan-Asian region will allow our customers to circumvent domestic capacity constraints and get access to more top-quality and the most relevant treatment options.”
The 130-plus top-tier hospitals comprised in the expanded network of PREMIER THE ONEcierge include numerous renowned, highly-praised medical facilities that have claimed many firsts in Asia. In China, 22 of the network’s 90 hospitals that span 19 provinces and 41 cities are listed in 2016 China’s Top 100 Hospitals Leaderboard. In Taiwan, the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital is home to Asia’s largest proton therapy cancer treatment centre; while in Singapore, Parkway Hospitals Singapore boast several firsts in the region and offer an enhanced hospital experience with their tastefully styled interiors.
Simply by calling PREMIER THE ONEcierge’s 24-hour reservation hotline, insured customers of TheOne Medical Solution can enjoy the exclusive one-stop treatment arrangement service provided by a dedicated team of medical professionals (note 1), and gain hassle-free access to an extended, Pan-Asian network of top-tier hospitals.
