HA NOI (VNS) — The prime minister has approved a plan to build the second branch of the Central Paediatrics Hospital in Ha Noi city.
The prime minister assigned the hospital to work with investors in building a detailed plan for construction and submit it to the minister of health for approval.
As reported by the Central Hospital, the hospital was built in the 1980s, so it is very old and outdated. Meanwhile, the demand for health care is on the rise, causing the hospital to be overloaded.
Therefore, the launch of a second branch is essential in creating favourable conditions for the hospital to examine and treat children and in helping strengthen research for children's health care.
It is expected that the branch will be built in Quoc Oai District, a suburb of Ha Noi City, with 1,000 to 1,500 beds.
The total investment for construction is expected to be more than VND4.7 trillion (US$223.8 million). — VNS
