HCM CITY — Việt Cường Medical Investment Ltd and Siemens Healthineers last week signed an equipment supply and service contract for the Stroke International Services (SIS) Cần Thơ project in HCM City.
As per the contract, the first hospital to treat stroke in the Mekong Delta region will be equipped with Siemens Healthineers advanced imaging diagnostic systems.
“SIS Cần Thơ project plays an important and meaningful role in providing high quality healthcare service to the population of 17 million people in Mekong Delta, particularly in providing timely treatment for stroke and cardiovascular patients, as well as education and training,” Fabrice Leguet, General Director of Siemens Healthcare, in Việt Nam said.
By contributing to the project, Siemens Healthineers reaffirmed its commitment to the development of Việt Nam’s healthcare sector, he said.
The construction of SIS Cần Thơ commenced in July, 2017, fuelled by the passion and dedication of leading Vietnamese and international doctors, pursuing the purpose of reducing death and disability ratio for stroke and cardiovascular patients.
In the first phase, the hospital will have 60 inpatient beds, which will then increase to 150–200 in the next phase. — VNS
