HÀ NỘI — The 108 Military Central Hospital will put its central building into operation on December 17 as the country’s largest and most modern medical facility after more than seven years of construction.
Located inside the current hospital at No1 Trần Hưng Đạo Street, Hoàn Kiếm District, Hà Nội, the construction consists of three buildings (two 22-storey buildings with a height of 108m and a 10-storey building) with a total floor area of 150,000sq.m and 2,000 beds, with capacity for 4,000 in emergencies.
The building is the country’s only medical facility with 50 positive-pressure operating rooms, including 45 standard operating rooms, three organ transplant operating rooms and two hybrid operating rooms. The hybrid rooms are equipped with advanced diagnosis, intervention and surgery facilities such as MRI machines, CT Scanners and a robotic intervention imaging system.
"With patient-centered orientation, the building has been equipped with many modern facilities that meet international standards to provide accuracy, speed and satisfaction to patients," said Deputy Director of the 108 Military Central Hospital Phạm Nguyên Sơn.
Sơn said as the highest level of military hospital, the hospital receives between 4,000 – 5,000 patients daily. In 2018, it has provided health checkups and examination for nearly a million patients.

To reduce waiting time of patients and increase efficiency in medical examination and treatment, the hospital will be the first medical facility in the country to operate two gas and conveyor transport systems. The gas transportation system is used to transport samples, drugs, medical instruments weighing from three to five kilos.
"With gas and conveyor transportation systems, samples are transferred automatically from the lab to the testing centre that helps to reduce human power and health workers would have more time to take care for patients," said Sơn.
In addition, the hospital also has an advanced automated testing system that can perform 3,600 tests per hour.
"This automated testing system help improving quality and quantity of tests and shortening the waiting time of patients," stressed Sơn.
This facility will contribute to the enhancement of scientific and technical resources for scientific research, training, technology transfer for the medical staff in the military sector as well as medical facilities in the country, according to Sơn. — VNS
