Kien Giang Province gets public hospital


KIEN GIANG — A 100-bed public hospital will be built in September under the current free clinic in Kien Giang Province.

The VND70 billion (US$4.3 million) public hospital should help expand the clinic’s services to more patients who could otherwise not afford health care, said Tran Lam, head of the clinic and chairman of the province’s Sponsoring Association for Poor Patients.

"The hospital receives money from enterprises nationwide," Lam said.

The current fourth floor clinic covering 500sq.m provides free examinations and medicines to more than 200 poor patients daily. The clinic will serve as the base for the new hospital.

The clinic recently added one more floor to the building to provide acupuncture services.

Similar to the free clinic, each patient going to the hospital will be provided with free examinations, medicine, food and transportation.

The hospital also plans to bring in modern equipment to ensure the patients receive the best care possible.

Lam noted that the hospital would work to provide services in line with private hospitals.

All doctors and nurses in the hospital will be volunteers. — VNS
