HÀ NỘI — The Hà Nội-based E Hospital announced on Friday new services in the fields of online-health advice and at-home patient sample testing.
It is be the first State-owned hospital in the city and the north to provide those services.
Prof. Lê Ngọc Thành, director of E Hospital – a central general hospital under the Ministry of Health – said an increasing demand for health check-ups and treatment has caused overloads and long-waiting situations at most hospitals and health centres. Therefore, the paid-money services of online-health advice, health-check and sample-taking at home are suitable to elderly, children and immobile patients.
“Patients don’t have to wait, suffer crowds or feel uncomfortably cramped, “ he said.
The hospital is reaching out to qualified facilities and human resources to meet the demand, according to the director.
The hospital has 900 doctors and health workers. It was designed with 1,000 patient-beds and 11 function rooms for health-checks and treatment, 27 clinical faculties and eight sub-clinical faculties. The hospital has four key treatment centres: heart, gastroenterology, musculoskeletal and skull. — VNS
