KIEN GIANG — The General Hospital of southern Kien Giang Province yesterday introduced heart disease intervention techniques under a total of VND30 billion (US$1.4 million) of invested funds.
This is the result of a technological transfer after the hospital sent two groups of doctors to HCM City - based Cho Ray Hospital for training in 2005.
Modern medical machines and equipment, new beds and rooms have also been introduced to facilitate treatment.
The technological transfer is expected to help reduce the mortality rate of patients as those with emergency heart conditions sometimes need to be moved to HCM City for treatment, which is 250km from Kien Giang. — VNS
