HCM CITY — The Hoàn Mỹ Thủ Đức International General Hospital in HCM City’s Thủ Đức city on Monday began admitting COVID-19 patients after one week of preparation to share the burden with public hospitals and meet the increasing number of cases.

The hospital’s 100 beds on the second to fourth floors along with necessary equipment are used to serve COVID-19 patients. The number of beds will be increased to 200.

The medical staff treating Covid-19 patients at the hospital are volunteers who are among more than 3,000 doctors, nurses and others working in the Hoàn Mỹ system's 15 hospitals and six clinics.

The cost of COVID-19 treatment will be covered by the health insurance fund and additional costs not in the COVID-19 treatment list will be charged based on the hospital's fees. — VNS
