The Vietnam-Germany Hospital, one of the country’s largest surgical centres, inaugurated an 11-storey building equipped with advanced technology in Hanoi on February 26.

Featuring seven clinical departments, 22 operating rooms and 365 beds, the building required a total investment of 394 billion VND (18.4 million USD), a third of which was sourced from the State budget.

The hospital now boasts a total of 1,450 beds and 52 operation rooms.

Hospital Director Nguyen Tien Quyet said the establishment of the high-tech medical facility is designed to better serve patients and address the issue of locals travelling overseas for treatment.

The same day, the National Paediatric Hospital inaugurated a new medical centre as part of a project to expand and upgrade the hospital itself.

The 75,000-square-metre facility is capable of handling a thousand patients simultaneously.

In 2014, the paediatric hospital treated more than 700,000 inpatients and over 80,000 outpatients.-VNA
