NDO – A groundbreaking ceremony was held in Ho Chi Minh City on May 11, to launch the first phase of the An Binh hospital upgrade project, which includes the construction of a 12-storey medical checkup and treatment building with 200 beds, at a total investment of more than VND451 billion (US$19.8 million) from non-State sources.

The second phase of the project will focus on installing 300 additional beds, using the funding from the construction capital sources.

The upgrade and expansion project aims to replace a number of the hospital’s old and deteriorated medical checkup and treatment sections, which are usually inundated and permeable in the case of tides and rains.

The hospital will invest in purchasing modern medical equipment in order to meet the requirement of enhancing the quality of medical checkups and treatments and contribute to reducing the hospital overload.

An Binh is a second-class general hospital under the HCM City Department of Health, with 23 expertise faculties, serving over 2,000 patients per day. The establishment is planning to develop new faculties and accelerate intensive development, striving to become a first-class hospital.

According to Prof. Nguyen Tan Binh, Director of the HCM City Department of Health, many hospitals across the city have implemented investment projects financed by both State and non-State funding over the past few years. From now until 2020, HCM City will strive to have well-equipped hospitals with significant improvements in the quality of medical services, aiming towards the goal of patient safety and satisfaction.
