NDO – Leaders have visited and congratulated medical staff across the nation on the occasion of the Vietnamese Doctors’ Day, which is observed on February 27 each year.

On February 25, Politburo member Vo Van Thuong, who is also Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Communications and Education, led a delegation from his committee and the Ministry of Health on a visit to congratulate doctors, health workers, and employees of Hanoi’s Military Hospital 108.

The hospital is currently one of the five largest and most prestigious medical facilities in the country, with more than 200 Professors and Doctors and nearly 300 physicians. Not only being at the forefront of medical examination and treatment, the hospital also takes the lead in cooperation in research, advanced treatment and applying specialised techniques.

On behalf of the Politburo and the Secretariat, Thuong conveyed his best wishes to medical staff at the hospital on the occasion of Vietnamese Doctors’ Day. He also praised the achievements of the medical facility and expressed his hope that the hospital will continue to promote its achieved results and soon become an international-level hospital.
