Philips and Singapore General Hospital (SGH) to establish Digital and Computational Pathology Center of Excellence

October 23, 2020

  • SGH aims to develop the first fully digitized histopathology laboratory in ASEAN by expanding the use of Philips’ IntelliSite Pathology Solution, potentially increasing the productivity of existing staff by 7%
  • Philips Singapore and SGH will optimize digital pathology use to facilitate research in Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced a collaboration with Singapore General Hospital (SGH) to establish the Singapore General Hospital Digital and Computational Pathology Center of Excellence. The SGH Center of Excellence aims to advance pathology practice by implementing a fully digital histopathology workflow and deploying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to increase productivity and enhance patient care.

Located within SGH’s Division of Pathology, one of the largest pathology laboratories in ASEAN, the Center of Excellence aims to establish ASEAN’s first fully digitized histopathology laboratory by expanding its digital pathology capabilities for primary diagnosis, training, and R&D with the Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution. Both SGH and Philips will also work closely on other diverse areas, including streamlining of the histopathology laboratory’s digital workflow.

As in other parts of the world, the demand for cancer diagnosis in Singapore is increasing while pathologists remain scarce. A recent study, conducted by SGH and Philips, revealed that full digitization of SGH’s histopathology laboratory will improve efficiency. It has the potential to enable time savings in the pathology workflow and allow the pathology department to increase its capacity by another 7% whilst retaining the same number of employees.

Through optimization of digital pathology at SGH, the hospital will be able to further its research in AI. AI-based tools can aid pathologists in diagnosing diseases such as cancer – the leading cause of mortality in Singapore [1] – and empower them to face the current challenges in pathology. The increasing number of cancer cases, an aging population, and rapid advances in personalized medicine have resulted in significant complexity of pathological diagnostics, adding to the workload of pathologists. AI will allow pathologists to focus more on challenging tasks and unusual cases that require a higher degree of expertise and skills.

“As healthcare becomes more complex and demanding, digitization has become a key enabler for the Hospital to provide better care for our patients and to be more efficient,” said Prof. Kenneth Kwek, Chief Executive Officer at SGH. “Digital pathology is an example of that. Our partnership with companies such as Philips, with its clinical and technical know-how, is important in helping us achieve our goal.”

“Digital pathology enhances the quality and efficiency of a histopathology laboratory,” said Diederik Zeven, General Manager, Health Systems, Philips ASEAN Pacific. “We are committed to partnering with leading healthcare institutions like Singapore General Hospital to bring the latest in precision diagnosis and AI capabilities to help them augment clinical quality, improving patient outcomes and thereby reducing the cost of care.”

Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution enables pathologists to review and interpret digital images of surgical pathology slides prepared from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue samples. This technology replaces the need for traditional glass slides to be viewed under a microscope, and facilitates referencing and storage. Ultimately, digital images allow the application of computer-aided image analysis with AI.

MAG Partners Announces Construction Financing for 480-Unit Affordable New York Development in Chelsea

Construction to begin in November

New York, NY, Oct. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MAG Partners today announced that it has secured a $173 million construction loan from Madison Realty Capital that will allow work to commence next month on a 479-unit rental residential building at 241 W. 28th Street in Chelsea. The project will be developed under the Affordable NY program with 30 percent of its units reserved for low- and middle-income New Yorkers. Renowned architecture firm COOKFOX has designed the building. The project is a joint venture between MAG Partners, Safanad, Atalaya Capital Management and Qualitas, one of the biggest asset managers in Australia.

“As true believers in the future of New York City, we are thrilled to be able to begin construction on this innovative project that will bring mixed-income housing and hundreds of jobs at a critical time for the City,” said MaryAnne Gilmartin, Founder and CEO of MAG Partners. “This is an incredibly desirable location as major tech companies continue to sign big leases within walking distance, and we expect to see very strong long-term demand for this property when it opens in 2022.”

MAG Partners acquired the site in December 2018 via a 99-year ground-lease with Edison Properties. The development is expected to be complete in late 2022.

Andrew Trickett, Head of Investments at Safanad, commented, “We are excited to have the opportunity to be a part of this partnership group, led by one of New York’s most respected developers, MaryAnne Gilmartin. With our entry in this transaction concurrent with the closing of this loan, we are now poised to deliver a market leading asset in an irreplaceable location in a city that we believe will come back stronger than ever in the coming years.”

The construction financing was arranged by Adi Chugh of Maverick Commercial Properties.  Jeff Rosen from MAG Partners represented ownership.   The financing supports construction throughout the estimated 30-month construction period.

“We are very excited to have closed this $173 million loan at a relatively low loan-to-cost with such an esteemed sponsorship group led by MaryAnne Gilmartin of MAG Partners as well as Atalaya and Qualitas,” said Josh Zegen, Co-Founder and Managing Principal of Madison. “This marquee 480-unit multifamily rental building, located within a few blocks of Hudson Yards and other prominent tech tenant expansions on the west side, will be one of the only new multifamily rental projects built in Manhattan in the next few years. We were pleased to fill a void which would customarily be financed by conventional banks, and provide our flexibility, certainty, and conviction.”

Mark Fischer, Global Head of Real Estate at Qualitas said, “As a firm we continue to believe in the future of cities as places where the world’s most talented and creative minds congregate – we expect New York City to continue to lead the way on that front and the Chelsea neighbourhood to strengthen its attributes as a highly desirable place to live, work and play. We are excited to commence building this project.”

“Maverick CP was excited and honored to take on the assignment of advising on the financing of this marquis project with top class sponsorship in the most challenging financing market in the history of the world. However, the old adage held up and we knew that there is always opportunity in adversity. The sponsorships vision, their capital commitment to the deal, the lender’s resilience, and ability to be creative and constructive allowed all of us to see the financing come to fruition,” said Adi Chung, Managing Partner of Maverick Commercial Properties.

It was previously announced that MAG Partners had selected Rick Cook and COOKFOX, a firm that is the best and most prolific team for innovative contextual and sustainable development in New York, to design the building. The MAG Partners team previously worked with COOKFOX on 550 Vanderbilt and 535 Carlton in the Pacific Park development in Brooklyn.

SINGAPORE, Oct. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trip.com Group CEO Jane Sun has been named one of Fortune’s “Most Powerful Women International” in its recently published list for 2020. This year, Sun is ranked among leading business figures such as Helena Helmersson, H&M Group CEO, Anne Rigail, Air France and KLM Deputy CEO, and Ho Ching, Temasek CEO and executive director.

Having first joined Trip.com Group as CFO in 2005, Sun became CEO in 2016, and has been a powerful force in the group and travel industry as one of only a few female CEOs in the sector. As noted in Sun’s profile on the Fortune “Most Powerful Women International” site, her recent achievements include introducing measures to ensure passenger safety and confidence following the outbreak of COVID-19, as well as foregoing her own salary to show solidarity with the struggles faced during the pandemic.

Throughout this year, Sun has led in innovating products and marketing channels to engage customers and secure much-needed cash flow for industry partners. As CEO, Sun was at the forefront of Trip.com Group’s “Travel On” initiative to bring together the industry to revitalize travel with a range of new safety standards, flexibility guarantees, and promotions. The Travel On initiative also saw Sun announce the investment of hundreds of millions of dollars into the industry to ensure partners could weather the storm. As domestic markets show positive signs of recovery and efforts to restart international travel are seeing fruition, Sun and Trip.com Group continue to push for recovery, with, for example, the month-long “LIVE for Trip” livestream campaign this October and November.

“I am humbled to be included on this list of some of the world’s most inspirational women in business, and grateful for Fortune’s recognition of the hard work we are doing at Trip.com Group to push for the revitalization of the travel industry,” said Ms. Jane Sun. “As Trip.com Group continues to innovate and encourage digital transformation, we are committed to supporting industry partners and moving forward with our customer-centric platforms during this challenging time. We are pushing to providing the best travel experience to our customers, as well as being a positive force for change within the company, the industry, and society.”

This is the fourth year in a row that Sun has been named in the Fortune “Most Powerful Women International” list and follows a string of acknowledgments of her prowess as the CEO of the leading international travel services provider. Last year, Sun was named one of Forbes’ “World’s Most Powerful Women” along with peers like German Chancellor Angela Markel, European Central Bank Head Christine Lagarde, Melinda Gates and Serena Williams.

In 2019, Ms. Jane Sun was awarded an Asia Society Asia Game Changer Award and joined as a member of the Asia Society Board of Trustee, as well as being announced as a Board member and Business Leaders Group committee member of Business China which was supported by Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.

UN Chief Calls for More Coordinated Global Efforts to Fight COVID

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres said it was very unfortunate that the 20 major industrialized nations did not come together in March, as he suggested then, to establish a coordinated response to suppress COVID-19 worldwide.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Guterres said he hopes that as the G-20 summit is coming next month, the international community understand “they need to be much more coordinated in fighting the virus.”

Guterres said the U.N. will be “strongly advocating” for a coordinated response to the disease, in addition to seeking a “guarantee” that any developed vaccine be treated as “a global public good” and be made “available and affordable for everyone, everywhere.”

Scores of researchers around the world are racing to develop a safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19, which has killed more than 1.1 million people worldwide and sickened more than 41 million.

Meanwhile, the number of countries with more than 1 million confirmed coronavirus cases has risen to seven, with France and Spain the latest nations to reach the mark.

On Thursday, France extended curfews to about 65% of its population and Belgium’s foreign minister was hospitalized with COVID-19 and treated in the intensive care unit, as a second wave of the pandemic surged across Europe.

However, according to data compiled by the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center, the United States remains the country with highest number of infections, more than 8.4 million total cases, followed by India, with 7.76 million; Brazil, with 5.32 million; Russia, with 1.45 million; and Argentina, which has 1,053,650. France is in sixth place with 1,041,991 cases, followed by Spain with 1,026,281.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revised its definition of close contact with a person infected with COVID-19.

The agency had previously determined that close contact was spending 15 consecutive minutes within 2 meters of an infected individual. The revised changes announced Wednesday now defines a close contact as someone who spent a total of 15 minutes accumulated over a 24-hour period.

The change by the CDC was prompted by a report of a prison officer in the northeastern U.S. state of Vermont who became infected with COVID-19 after more than 20 brief interactions with inmates who later tested positive for the virus. The brief visits added up to about 17 total minutes of exposure.

Despite Surge, Belgium Tightens COVID-19 Restrictions But Resists Lockdown

Belgian officials Friday announced new COVID-19 restrictions but stopped short of a lockdown to stem the surging rate of infections, which are now averaging more than 10,000 per day.

At a news conference in Brussels, Prime Minister Alexander De Croo announced, among other restrictions, fans are now banned from sports matches; zoos and theme parks will be closed; and limits will be placed on the number of people in cultural spaces. Teleworking remains the rule wherever possible.

Belgium had already closed cafes, bars and restaurants and imposed a curfew, and has Europe’s second highest infection rate per capita after the Czech Republic. New infections hit a peak of 10,500 on Thursday.

De Croo said Belgium is “pressing the ‘pause’ button” for a few goals, “to ensure that our doctors and hospitals can keep doing their work, that children can continue attending schools and that businesses can continue working while preserving as much as possible the mental health of our population.”

Visits at nursing homes have also been limited, but many health experts think the new curtailment won’t be enough to break the contagion chain.

Since the pandemic started, the virus has killed 10,588 people in the small nation with 11.5-million inhabitants.

The health situation is so dramatic in nine out of 10 Belgium’s provinces that authorities have recently warned intensive care units will hit their capacity by mid-November if new coronavirus cases continue at the same pace.

“No rules, no laws can defeat the virus,” said De Croo. “The only ones who can defeat it, it is us and our collective behavior.”

To avoid a collapse of the health system, Health Minister Frank Vandenbroucke said that the number of beds available in ICUs will be increased to 2,300 while non-urgent operations will be postponed over the next four weeks.

De Croo said it is not new rules and regulations that will defeat the virus, but the collective behavior of the people. He also sent a message of support to business owners and workers affected by the measures who struggle financially and are losing their jobs.

“To all the people affected on the economic level be assured that we are putting everything in place to help, we are going through a national crisis, and national crisis requires national solidarity,” he said.
