HCM CITY — Nhân Dân Gia Định Hospital, one of largest general hospitals in HCM City, plans to use more high-tech medical treatments and buy more state-of-the-art equipment to improve medical quality, Dr. Nguyễn Anh Dũng, director of the hospital, has said.
Construction of a new 15-storey building at the hospital begins next year. It is expected to open in 2019.
