HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Health has recognised the Hà Nội Oncology Hospital as a high level hospital and assigned the hospital a task of directing specialised techniques on oncology.
As an tertiary referral hospital in the oncology field, the Hà Nội Oncology Hospital will join in directing specialised techniques to help lower level hospitals as well as supporting the National Cancer (K) Hospital in the central level’s cancer examination and treatment activities.
Speaking at the announcement event on Thursday, Deputy Minister of Health Nguyễn Trường Sơn urged the hospital to strive to be an end-line oncology hospital as well as become a leading training facility in the oncology field of the country.
The hospital director Bùi Vinh Quang said that this marked a big foundation in the hospital’s development.
“The hospital will strive more to improve examination and treatment quality, helping reducing congestion for central hospitals and creating more favourable conditions for people to access high quality services of cancer checkups and treatment,” said Quang.
