HCM CITY — The City International Hospital in HCM City yesterday opened a 115 emergency station on its premises.
It will offer emergency medical services to people living in districts 5, 6, 10, 11, Bình Tân, and Bình Chánh and in neighbouring provinces.
The creation of satellite stations for the 115 service at hospitals around the city would help quickly respond to medical emergencies, Tăng Chí Thượng, deputy director of the city Department of Health, said.
Nguyễn Duy Long, director of the HCM City 115 Emergency Centre, said it is the 26th satellite emergency station in the city and the second in Bình Tân District, which has a high population density and rising need for emergency services.
The participation of private hospitals is vital in expanding the emergency network, he said.
The Department of Health is encouraging private hospitals to participate. —VNS
