HCM CITY — Gia An 115 Hospital – the first health care facility constructed in the form of public-private partnership (PPP) in HCM City – was inaugurated on Saturday.

The hospital, a joint effort of Hoa Lâm Group and People’s 115 Hospital, has 367 patient beds and 60 check-up rooms in a 10-storey building along with medical equipment meeting international standards.

Licensed to operate from August 31, 2018, Gia An 115 is a general hospital with specialised departments such as cardiology, neurology and stroke, endocrinology, physical therapy, and rehabilitation services.

The hospital has the professional support from People’s 115 Hospital with the consultation from leading experts and doctors in many fields.

Gia An 115 Hospital is the second facility in the International Hi-tech Healthcare Park of Hoa Lâm Shangri-La, a healthcare complex founded in 2008 with more than 1,700 inpatient beds. The complex is expected to host six general and specialised hospitals, as well as auxiliary facilities.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Nguyễn Tấn Bỉnh, director of the HCM City Department of Health, said this is the first time a PPP hospital has been built in the city, marking a fruitful cooperation between a public hospital and a private business, he noted.

Along with helping ease the overload in central-level hospitals in the city, the hospital will provide quality health care services at reasonable cost to local patients, he stated.

The official said in the future, the city’s health sector will continue implementing more similar projects to better meet the medical demand of locals. — VNS
