Hoa Lam-Shangri-La Healthcare LLC will inaugurate Thanh Do Hospital in the hi-tech healthcare park in HCMC’s Binh Chanh District early next year.
The international-standard 320-bed hospital is set for completion in January 2013, and will be operated by Singapore-based healthcare group Parkway Health, said David Yip, deputy general director of Hoa Lam-Shangri-La Healthcare.
This is the 16th hospital managed by Parkway Health across Asia. In order to facilitate the operation of Thanh Do Hospital, Parkway Health has sent 16 Vietnamese doctors to Singapore for training, said Yip.
Vietnam is now in dire need of specialized doctors. Apart from overseas training, Thanh Do will join hands with other hospitals in HCMC in training its staff, Yip said.
The company has chosen FPT IS Company to install hospital management software worth VND19.4-billion in an attempt to guarantee smooth management.
In 2008, HCMC authorities issued an investment certificate for the medical care firm to develop a hi-tech healthcare park project in Binh Chanh. The 37.6-hectare project, which includes such facilities as hospital, laboratory, healthcare exhibition center, commercial center, and residential area, is scheduled for completion within a decade.
