The upgrade work is considered to be a key construction project to welcome the 12th National Party Congress, which will take place from January 20 to 28.
The upgrade work started in 2013, increasing the number of beds in the hospital from 230 to 500, spread over nearly 35,000sq.m, at a cost of more than VND860 billion (about US$38.3 million)
With one basement and seven floors, the hospital gives priority to treating patients coming from the northern part of the city.
The hospital was expected to not only care for Hanoians, but also to help reduce pressure on national hospitals and those in neighbouring provinces, a representative of the Ha Noi health department said.
The hospital is scheduled to become a level 1 general hospital with 42 departments in 2016. — VNS
