Speaking at the Ceremony, Nicolas Warnery said: “2023 marks the 50th year anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and Viet Nam.

Hanoi French Hospital launched this expansion project with the ambition of meeting the increasing demand for truly international standard healthcare of a fast-growing Vietnamese middle class along with a growing number of expatriates and foreign visitors in Ha Noi and Northern Vietnam.

In 2019, the 7-floor Inpatient building was put into operation, with state-of-the-art inpatient facilities, the latest technology and medical equipment in a unique European-style ambiance. In 2022, after COVID-19 pandemic-related delays, the refurbishment of the Outpatient and A&E building, with a dedicated Health Check Center was completed.

With this full range of service facilities in place, Hanoi French Hospital is truly the premium European hospital in the center of Ha Noi, serving discerning local and international communities in Northern Vietnam.

Mr. Jef Peeters, CEO of Hanoi French Hospital, said: “We are proud of over 25 years of track record of trusted first-class healthcare for many families and corporates. The new license that we commemorated today at our launch event is a key step in allowing Hanoi French Hospital to move forward serving more and more people who want international standard healthcare at their convenience. We will continue to bring in talented internationally trained doctors, local and foreign, who will continue to work side by side, sharing the commitment and values of providing First class healthcare to the wider local and expatriate community in Viet Nam”.
