HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Investment and Development Bank (BIDV) donated medical equipment and facilities worth VNĐ10 billion (US$435,000) to Saint Paul Hospital at a ceremony on Wednesday in Hà Nội.
The donation is part of a series of corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes that BIDV is engaged in to support the capital city’s healthcare sector in 2017.
The medical equipment include a sterilisation instrument, four patient supervision monitors, two respiration machines, two high-frequency surgical knifes, electrical cardioversion, micro-surgical tools, a blood test machine and a 16-seat car for transporting doctors to local medical facilities for medical technique transference sessions.
Hospital director Nguyễn Đình Hưng thanked the BIDV for supporting the health sector and Saint Paul Hospital, and said the donation will help improve the quality of treatment.
“We commit to effectively use and manage the donated medical facilities in serving and treating people in Hà Nội city,” Hưng said. — VNS
