NDO/VNA – The Health Department of the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long inaugurated the Hoa Phu general hospital in Long Ho district on February 23 to provide healthcare services for local people and workers at Hoa Phu Industrial Park.

According to the Health Department’s Director Tran Van Ut, construction of the 50-bed facility started in 2014 with a total investment of more than VND76 billion (over US$3.34 million).

The 1.1-hectare hospital is equipped with armamentaria of a standard suitable for a third-class hospital in Vietnam, such as machines for digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, biochemical tests, and blood tests.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Lu Quang Ngoi said the general hospital is a practical project that meets the medical needs of people living in Long Ho district and about 37,000 workers at Hoa Phu Industrial Park.

It is expected to reduce the load on higher-level hospitals while helping the locals to cut their medical costs, he said.

He urged the hospital to continue to provide training for its team of doctors and nurses and develop a code of conduct for them when communicating with patients to improve the quality of their services.
